QWP, flocked. team7 (Tin)and the US Embassy about participating in a book convention:

US Embassy: What's that? You want us to participate in your convention?
Tin: Yes, please. <--have sent numerous letters to that effect
US Embassy: Is that a black-tie party?
Tin: ... No. It's a literary gathering.
US Embassy: We don't do literary gatherings.
Tin: Well, you can also consider it as a cultural affair.
US Embassy: The US has no culture.
