Bacon flavored lip balm.

I've always said that anything can be made better with bacon.

The etiquette gap: From Newt and Mitt to Facebook and texting

No one should do anything that can either annoy or offend the sensibilities of others.

. Emily Post

For all her family's generations of well-mannered breeding, Lizzie Post is not immune to the awkward moment. She was out to dinner not long ago with friends, and as the hour grew late, the wine flowed, and so did the foul language coming from her group. A man from another table came over and asked that they tone things down because he had children with him.

"I was really embarrassed," winces Ms. Post, great-great-granddaughter of the legendary etiquette giant Emily Post.

But not so for one of her table mates. He said that it was the father who was out of line, that people curse, and that if the man wanted to take his children out in public, they'd better get used to it.

A long read, but pretty interesting.
