Limerick of the Week
As I said before, my casebook does not include the classic coronation cases, arising out of the postponed coronation King Edward VII, pictured at left. I therefore expect my students to learn the history of the frustration of purpose doctrine solely by studying Limericks. It's a very rigorous curriculum, and I still get complaints that some contracts doctrine is easily reduced to Haiku.
Was Henry's whole purpose frustrated
When the King burst appendix dictated
That the crown must delay
It's coronation day?
Yes! So contract doctrine's updated.
