Pinkies Up!

Mug-tiquette (via Meme-Meme)

By the by, does anyone know just how the whole "Pinky Extended While Drinking Tea = Fancy" thing originated? Is that even a real thing? This online tea shop says no, it's actually considered rude (or maybe just overly-pretentious?)
How to Properly Drink your Tea - First and foremost, never hold your cup with your pinkie finger extended. This is improper and in most social settings is considered rude. Place your index finger into the handle of the cup up to the knuckle while placing your thumb on the top of the handle to secure the cup. The bottom of the handle should then rest on your third finger. The fourth and fifth fingers should curve back towards your wrist.
