No, that contract *is* silly -- there's no actual or implied agreement.
But consider this announcement:

"According to these moth-eaten documents, I own the land under your house.
But if you agree to let me stay at your house whenever I want,
I will undertake not to evict you.  This is not a lease."

What would you do?  Sit tight, or put up with the unwanted guest?
