Legal Question

If a young lady is wearing a t-shirt that reads "Kiss Me", how much trouble could one get into by acting on these written instructions?

I suspect thee answer to this will display considerable regional variation across the world.

I suspect your suspicions are correct :)

The way I would tend to look at it is, this is written consent. Now, it is possible that the young lady would, upon execution of the task, try to revoke the permission verbally or by other means. But in that case, we would have conflicting instructions. So if she does want to revoke the written permission, it seems to me the appropriate way to do that would be to take off the t-shirt.

But as you say, it probably varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

German Law knows the figure "obvious lack of sincerity", that is, the lack of sincerity is readily apparent to anyone with half a brain who is not an arsehole ("im Urteil aller billig und gerecht Denkenden" - Do you know a better translation?).

So in Germany you would hard pressed to find a judge willing to accept your "But that's what she wrote" explanation.

Now in Iran, however....

Possibly not quite as much trouble as acting on instructions of a young lady wearing panties that say "Kiss me". But without following instructions, who can really say?

In Scotland it would be an offer rather than an instruction. An invitation to treat, as we say.

For a contract to be valid, it must be signed and dated. Be careful. :wink:

Now wait, we never said anything about dating, just the one time deal.

ALthough it could be a sign.
