That reminds me of a Marx Brothers routine (possibly from "Coconuts") which
boiled down to:

having Chico and Harpo play at the event: 10 dollars
having Chico & Harpo rehearse before: 20 dollars
not having Chico & Harpo rehearse (or play): you can't afford it.

(Are the Marx brothers another pop culture item I should avoid mentioning in
job interviews because it labels me as too old?)
