    Snopes doesn't care about the rug per se, only about getting revenge. Although he is fined a trivial amount in respect to the injustice he has caused, he takes a disproportionate and irrational vengeance against the entrenched system that proves him wrong. Snopes simply hates people of a higher class than he is, so if he can't get away with damaging a man's rug, he burns his barn. Logic?

    Honestly, do you think someone has read this in the last couple of hours and will take the time on a late Sunday evening to write this all out for you.

    Please remember - your required reading is not likely recreational reading for anyone else.
