On Good Etiquette

Andrew W.K.: "Being polite is very important. I've not always been able to maintain that, but a general sense of good manners [is needed]. I'd say also etiquette is being generous—offering people whatever they want that you have to offer and sharing alike with drinks, chips, food, crackers, cake, cookies, cupcakes, donuts, crullers, crescent rolls, croissants, and, y'know, those little bread and butter biscuits.

On Bad Etiquette

"Oh, a lot of punching. Usually the low point for any human activity is when it somehow gets reduced to punching and kicking, but at the same time, there have been times when that's been necessary to protect the life of some other folks, so only punch and kick when it's absolutely necessary.

 

If you're going to puke, please do not puke into someone else's mouth unless they specifically want it.

 

"Sometimes, shouting and yelling is very fun, and sometimes shouting and yelling when it's directed toward someone in a very cruel or unusual way [is] not a very party vibe. And then if you're going to puke, please do not puke into someone else's mouth unless they specifically want it.

"I have seen people puke and it got on other people, and they didn't seem too happy about it because that smell lingers. Even if you change your clothes, that stomach acid—that bile—will attach itself to your skin, just like if you bathe in sour milk, it's going to stay on your skin for a long time to come.

"I went to a party where there was a lot of people fistfighting the whole time, and they tore the stairs apart and threw these bicycles through the windows of this house and hurt a bunch of folks, and then the police came and ended everything."
