Dennis the Menace in this cartoon reminds us of a very important topic, ETIQUETTE. What is etiquette and how did it begin?
Dennis is at his friends tea party and he is obviously annoying Margaret with his unpolished manners. The look on Margaret’s face is priceless and Dennis’ response is witty: “What do you mean? I’ve got plenty of manners. I just choose not to use ’em.” Like Dennis, conveniently we can forget to use our manners or it’s possible that we know them well enough and choose not to use them when it matters. We need more practice in etiquette and a friend like Margaret to give us that EXASPERATED look.
This Saturday morning cartoon, drawn by Hank Ketcham, is a funny way of showing us how important it is to use etiquette, especially around company.
In the video, Etiquette & The Story of King Louis XIV, Cindy and the Emily Post Production team give us a short history of where the word etiquette comes from and what does it means.
