Limerick of the Week

Tobacco_barn_1_1 There was a lot of talk about tobacco barns and Buffaloe v. Hart last week on the Contracts Profs Listserve.  I think we established to our satisfaction that students should come away from their first year in law school secure in the knowledge that tobacoo barns (pictured) are moveable. 

Tobacco_barn_2 And while we are on the topic of useful knowledge, here is a Limerick memorializing the case:

Acceptance of "goods" was the start
Of Buffaloe's barn deal with Hart.
A torn check was the end,
Evincing a trend
To bind through Llewellyn's black art.
