It’s been an eventful twenty-four hours at the Sixth International Contracts Conference at Stetson University Law School filled with contracts theory, insightful presentations, and a triumph of the human will. The Professors embarked on a one hour boat tour, but ended up waylaid on the sandbar, rather like Prof. Bruno Zeller’s pants. In Telman-style, Profs. Nancy Ota (Albany) and Emily Houh (Cincinnati) came up with some limericks in order to celebrate the adventure:
Jamie Fox had planned for most folly.
But we boarded a boat
That could not stay afloat
How we wished we had taken a trolley.
Until the sand caused too much traction.
Nine jumped the boat.
Others hoped it would float
After which they would sue the captain.
Jamie Fox has good reason to gloat
A great conference plus a night on a boat.
Our gratitude unspoken
A reminder to find a deep moat.
