Contracts and P. Diddy

with one comment

Most ridiculous mnemonic I’ve run into so far in law school:

DSQQWPP – “ducks say quack quack when passing people.”

I believe that this stands for “duration, subject matter, quality, quantity, work to be done, price and payment.”

I also believe that these are supposed to be requisite in order to have mutual assent between parties in a contractual agreement.  But then again class is such a haze that I might imagined all of that, including the part about the ducks.  Honestly, that almost seems more likely.

From the Blum “Examples and Explanations”, page 78.  I think this was an attempt at humor.

“Instead of authorizing acceptance in the form of words, the offeror could demand a nonverbal signification of acceptance.  The offer could state, for example ‘I offer to sell you Bleakacre for $2 Million.  If you wish to accept this offer, you must stand in your underwear at the corner of Main and Broadway at 2 P.M. today.  This is the only way that you may accept this offer.’  By performing the act, the offeree signifies assent and impliedly promises to perform the consideration (payment of $2 Million) demanded in the offer.”

In other news, P. Diddy is complaining about gas prices on his Youtube blog.  Apparently, he is beginning to find it cost ineffective to fly his private jet everywhere, and is now reverting back to commercial airlines.  And I quote:

“I want to give a shout out to all my Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters and all my brothers and sisters from all the countries that have oil, if you could all please send me some oil for my jet I would truly appreciate it.”

  1. i read yours religiously. i just don’t always have anything to say. like this, for instance. i don’t feel that there is anything i can add to this. me + law school stuff = probably not good. and, it’s obvious that P. Diddy is a dickhead.

    i’ll try to comment more, but i swear, i check it every day.
