Pairing Whore Penguins

Links that have amused me today

Books on etiquette always amuse me as telling repositories of history and bitchiness: Someone somewhere asked whether or not to answer an engraved card announcing an engagement. The answer can have nothing to do with etiquette, since an engraved announcement is unknown to good society. —Emily Post, from "The Usefulness of Cards," Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home (1922). I was reading the book for research purposes today. *g*

Gotta love the man behind the Most Interesting Man in the World!
