And I ask: Do you think Mayer made an offer?
Here's the background, from CNN (hyperlink added):
Wednesday Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump was arrested in Los Angeles for driving without a license and later released on $15,000 bail. Thursday, Jon Mayer tweeted that he was arrested for the same offense as Stump and posted the following message on his Twitter page to TMZ.com’s Harvey Levin:
“Challenge: if Harvey Levin at TMZ can produce my mugshot, I will donate 25k to the charity of his choice.”
Well, TMZ delivered… and it sounds like the celebrity website is serious about making Mayer deliver on his challenge. The website wants to donate the cash to an animal charity… saying they’re close to saving a puppy’s life.§ 24 of the Restatement (2d) of Contracts,"Offer Defined," provides:
Comment a to § 24 provides, in part:
An offer is the manifestation of willingness to enter into a bargain, so made as to justify another person in understanding that his assent to that bargain is invited and will conclude it.
In the normal case of an offer of an exchange of promises, or in the case of an offer of a promise for an act, the offer itself is a promise, revocable until accepted.
