Oh man, this is weird!

So I'm paging through one of the zillions of catalouges I got handed for free at the bridal show this weekend, reading little articles about how to shorten your to-do list and how to color-coordinate your reception. I come across one called "The Right Words" which tells you how to "find the perfect turn of phrase to get you out of a sticky invitation situation". Which is all well and good. So I think, "Hmm, I'll read it, what the heck. So I'm going along, and eventually it starts giving examples of how you should word these invitations.......and the names they use as samples are ALL BUFFY CHARACTERS. Nowhere does it mention this, they just are. It's REALLY strange. Here are each and every example they used:

Mr. and Mrs. John Calendar
request the honour of your presence
at the wedding of their daughter
Jennifer Maria
to
Mr. Rupert Giles
Saturday, the fourth of September,
two thousand and three
at three o'clock
Branford Hall
3 Mayfair Place, Sunnydale, California

Mr. and Mrs. Ashton Chase
and
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Harris
request the honour of your presence
at the wedding of their children...

Mr. and Mrs. John Calendar
request the honour of your presence
at the wedding of their daughter
Jennifer Maria
to
Mr. Rupert Giles
son of Mr. and Mrs. Randy Giles

Miss Anya Emerson
and
Mr. Alexander Harris
Request the honour of your presence...

Ms. Cordelia Chase-Wyndham
and
Mr. Wesley Wyndham...

Together with their families
Anya Emerson
and Alexander Harris
request the honour of your presence...

Anya Emerson
and
Alexander Harris
are getting married!
Watch them tie the knot on...

The article uses these examples to show you how to avoid discomfort if your parents are divorced or if you are hosting your wedding by yourself and stuff like that. BUT WITH BUFFY NAMES. This will cause me to chuckle to myself every once in a while for the rest of eternity.
