I’ve patented the procedure used for putting a trash bag into a garbage can as well as all known methods of getting out of bed in the morning. 

Pay up, suckers.

It’s okay to get a patent.  It’s not okay to enforce a patent.  Yeah, that makes sense!

As long as it’s not a patent on something like putting a trash bag into a garbage can or getting out of bed.
