Party Packin'

I had a Noddy party once. While not as awesome, these Hi-5 party packs, avaliable in foodmarts, still make for one fully attended birthday party:

Or... do they? They give you six settings... but how many invites?

So, basically it is assumed that at least two people the hapless kid invites to their party will not come. 3/4 is the MAXIMUM amount of friend-party turnover allowed. No exceptions.

It must be science or something.

Why the extra napkins though?? So the poor birthday child can soak up their tears after receiving two knockbacks?

oh poor (abstract) kid. in year one my mum made me invite this kid boris to my birthday party. he had asked me to marry him and i said no, so he started bullying me. she thought this would solve things.
alas- he threw the invite in the bin right in front of me. the tears are welling up as i remember it...could someone pass me one of those napkins?

we miss you will. in real life and at Some Kind of Crew.

If it makes you feel any better, Boris was obviously a RUSSIAN DOUBLE AGENT.

... either that, or two of the people who are invited are invited only on some form of cleaning duty (which would explain why they get napkins, but not plates or cups). perhaps as some form of counter to childhood obesity - wiping exercise, but no fatty party food for the fat kids. 1/4 too fat to have party-fun sounds roughly right based on all those statistics that people keep throwing around.
