Willy Wonka Reading Contract

I love this article because it does what I like to do: comment on contracts used in movies or on TV. A colleague and I wrote an article in the Michigan State Bar Journal about the Bilbo Baggins contract used in the Hobbit movies โ€“ here`s the link: www.michbar.org/file/barjournal/article/documents/pdf4article2677.pdf Willy Wonka: False, sir. False. According to ยง 37B of the contract signed by him, it is clearly stated that all offers become null and void if – and you can read it yourself in this photostatic copy – “I, the undersigned, lose all rights, privileges and licenses contained herein and herein”, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera…”Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum, “et cetera, et cetera…”Memo bis punitor delicatum”. Everything is there, black and white, clear as crystal. They stole soft lifting drinks. You hit the ceiling, which now needs to be washed and sterilized to get nothing. You lose. Good morning, sir. Grandpa Joe: You`re a crook. You are a scammer and a scammer. How could you do something like that, raise a little boy`s hopes and then tear all his dreams to pieces? You are an inhuman monster.

Funny post. They give me all kinds of ideas for my students` next job. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love him! In fact, I started my course on contracts with a few clips of Willy Wonka! Fun Fun Fun. Grandpa Joe: What are the rules? We haven`t seen any rules, have we, Charlie? Grandpa Joe: I was just wondering about chocolate. Lifetime supply of chocolate? For Charlie? When does he get it?. . . .
