Match and dispatch

I had a bizarre conversation with an Indonesian property company yesterday:

"We have started a new venture: cemeteries and have built a very beautiful one in Jakarta with flat, not vertical, tombstones."

"I thought the disadvantage of flat tombstones was that the engravings will be eroded more quickly by rain?"

"We can replace them cheaply. The advantage is that the cemetery is much easier to mow. We are also getting income from weddings there."

"Why would people want to get married in a cemetery?"

"We have built a very beautiful chapel there and you can't see the graves from it. There will be a huge number of invisible guests!"

You know, WW, I like the idea. Looks like a war cemetery.
