That's the only way I can think about it without my head exploding.
For my "Exhibit A" I present what seems to be the meat of their
discussion on the instrument's provenance:
"How Can We Prove This Is The Holy Grail?
It was when the Complete Recordings Box Set was released
in 1990 that it really hit home.
It is unquestionably a picture of our guitar."
And here I am thinking that establishing provenance might mean actually
tracing a line of ownership back to Robert Johnson...silly me!
It is a joke, right?
