CPT

noun; acronym
Colored People Time
 
The wedding reception started at 7 and most people didn’t come till 9. I guess we should have known they would run on CPT.
Etymology : Colored refers to African Americans. Based on the conception within the African American society of prevalent and consistent tardiness, CPT refers to an hour (or more) later than the arranged time. It is put in initialism so as to possess a semblance to the names of time zones
