What Would Prudence Say?

From the snail-mail bag:
[Wedding Invitation]

Chuppah at seven o'clock
Simchas Chosson v'kallah at 9:45
(We hope to be on schedule as the music ends at 11:00 pm)

This is all 100 percent verbatem by the way, including the annoying inconsistancy with the way the time is written.

And frankly, I'm impressed. In just three lines, the hosts have mananged to announce (1) no attention to detail (2) stinginess (3) chronic lateness and (4) absense of personal responsibility, ie: if the band goes home before we're ready it's not the host's fault. It's the guest's fault. Bad, bad guests.

Bonus: Guess the sect affiliation of the hosts.
