That better for ya?
That makes more sense!

Imagine transporting it home? Getting pulled over by a cop. Would it be in dude's pocket? How would one explain THAT? Or a car wreck?

Yikes.

Yeah, not something you will ever have to worry about, I'm sure.

I've always understood that flushing it can cause plumbing problems

That is truly sad. Talk about dumbing down stuff.

Just I'd throw this in as a little bonus.:/ I know for a fact that musicians don't make much money but this is over the top.

DEAR MISS MANNERS: I thought I had seen everything, but recently we received a wedding invitation via Facebook.

If that was not bad enough, it turns out that the wedding couple, both musicians, decided to have the ceremony in the context of a concert performance by them. The invitation indicated that because they have decided to rent a concert hall, in lieu of buying a gift, we would be required to buy a ticket to help defray the costs of the performance.

Again, because of financial restrictions, we were instructed that we could order food and beverages off a menu at our own expense, but cupcakes would be provided for dessert.

Last week we received yet another online notification indicating if we could not attend, we may choose to donate at various levels toward the couple’s honeymoon. Depending on what amount we gave, the gift giver would be given a variety of different “thank you” responses from the couple.

I realize that times are changing, but we were flabbergasted by an invitation like this. While I don’t expect people to go into great debt to throw an extravagant wedding reception, it also doesn’t feel appropriate for guests to foot the bill.

We paid for our own simple but elegant wedding and reception, and kept it within a budget we could afford. I should add the couple are middle-age, so I would think they would know better. Any thoughts on this?

GENTLE READER: Who are these musicians? Franz Liszt and Nellie Melba?

Even then, the price would be rather steep. Especially as you are expected to bring your own Peach Melba.

Because of the deft touch about different levels of thanks, Miss Manners will do this couple the courtesy of assuming that they meant it all as a joke. However, she feels obliged to warn them not to hope to make a living as comedians.

Yeah I tried for about 15 minutes then gave up. Pfffttt I have a latin test tomorrow (after THREE days wth) so I can't be messing around online too much. Just re-wrote all my (again only 3 days) notes so that I can read them. <sigh>

Yuck! SO.Rude.
I can't believe anyone would do this--and worse, I can't believe the people who would actually PAY a ticket to go to a wedding.
Thank you's based on the honeymoon gift given? I would gladly "lose" that invitation.....oh, wait-I don't have FB! Yes.

I believe there is an internet radio station out of Finland that broadcasts in Latin. I read about it few year ago. Never listened.

I learned Finnish carpentry techniques from that station though, admittedly, I often needed the assistance of my Mexican helper translating some of the Latin.
