Happy Brain-Boosting Wednesday!!! (RSVP)

Here's your middle-of-the-week brain booster!!!
Have you ever wonder what RSVP stands for?
I mean, we say it all the time when we send out invites for something, buuuut what does it mean??? Randomly, I was asking everyone around church and no one really knew...NOT EVEN one agreed with MY interpretation of it being Respond Soon Very Please...OKAAAAAAAAY WHY NOT??? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
WEEEEEELLLL, I decided that when I got home I would do a little research and be the one to INFORM all my unenlightened fellow church members of WHAT RSVP stands for. (This is pretty much the norm for me at my church...I'm always up to SOMETHING!!! LOL) 
Soooooooooooo I went home and researched it and when I looked it up, I INSTANTLY KNEW WHY know one knows what RSVP STANDS for....I was soooooo pleased with myself...First person I would impress with my new-found knowledge would be Mr-almost-has-his-masters-degree-himself...YES, you guessed it, STULTZ!!!
I was like, JONATHON!!! I know WHY we don't know what RSVP STANDS FOR...before I could EVEN INFORM HIM...because it's NOT in English...I was like, UGH! You juuuuuust had TO LOOK IT UP TOO???? You just COULD'T LET ME, Little-Miss-No-Degree, BE THE ONE TO INFORM YOU??? UGH!!!
Anyways, let me inform YOU don't go running to your dictionary encyclopedia GOOGLE for this before I tell you, JUST LET ME BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU ALL OKAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY??? OK!!! 

"Did you know???..."
Répondez s'il vous plaît
RSVP is a process for a response from the invited person or people. It is an initialism derived from the French phrase Répondez s'il vous plaît, meaning "Please respond" to require confirmation of an invitation. Actually, somewhere else it says that Literally, « s'il vous plaît » means "if it pleases you".   Sooooooo RSVP translates into RESPOND IF IT PLEASES YOU...I'm not cool with that...I think it should mean, PLEASE RESPOND OR ELSE YOUR ANNOYING THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF ME AND IF YOU DO COME WITHOUT RESPONDING THERE WON"T BE ANY FOOD FOR YOU!!

"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)
Thank you all for letting ME be THE ONE to inform you all of that...hee, hee!!!
