Hitler's Take on the Chicken Case

Ever wonder how the facts and primary arguments in Frigaliment, a.k.a. The Chicken Case, could be illustrated via a humorous video clip involving Hitler?  Yeah, me neither.  Until now

 

Last night, a former student of mine sent me a link to a "Hitler Rant" on this very case.  For those who, like me, are too old and boring busy to have heard of HItler Rants before, they are an internet meme in which various "authors" craft humorous captions on all sorts of topics and insert them into the same clip from the critically-acclaimed German film, Downfall.  For those who, like me, are children of the '80s, think Mad Libs for movie trailers.  (Our fearless leader, Jeremy Telman, previously blogged about the phenomenon, and its application to contract doctrine, here.)  As you likely recall, in Frigaliment, the core of the dispute was whether an agreement to purchase "chicken" should be interpreted as applying to only "young" chicken or any chicken.  As for the Hitler Rant regarding Frigaliment?  Well, you just have to see it for yourself
