Is the term "finders keepers" complete incorrect grammer?

I think the more correct version would be "finders' keepers"

I believe it should be "finders are keepers."

    That's funny. Of course it is. It's description of a mythical, playful little being fits with the stealing of teeth and replacing them with cash. Would it sound better if it was the tooth troll, tooth ogre, or tooth elve?

    It should be "FInders are keepers; losers are weepers", but we drop the verbs

    No, the first is perfectly acceptable. The "are" is understood.
