Weekend Frivolity: No Stems, No Seeds that You Don't Need

It still teach Brookside Farms v. Mama Rizzo, even though I don't like it very much, for three reasons:

  1. It's still the only case I can find that deals with modifications under the UCC.  ContractsProfs, if you know a better case, help me out!
  2. It's got the reference to a basil sale carcinoma, and a student challenged me to work that into a Limerick.
  3. The first modification in the case involves a request from the buyer that the seller remove the stems from the basil leafs.  Because childhood is so sticky, every time I read or think about the case, I am reminded of the Cheech and Chong song with the immortal lyric: "No stems no seeds that you don't need -- Acapulco Gold is some badass weed!"

I played a clip of this video for my students so that they would understand my attachment to the case.

Their response?  "Hey, the clip is three minutes long, but you only played about ten seconds of it!"
