Heading to London for the 2012 Olympics? Never been to Britain before? Don't worry! The Associated Press has put together a fabulous etiquette guide that we've summarized into seven main points:

1. Wait in line

2. Talk about the weather

3. Enjoy a pint

4. Buy some random people at the pub a round ("Buying a drink only for yourself is considered exceptionally rude." Who knew?)

5. Don't bother tipping

6. Don't be a fatty like in America

7. Avoid eye contact ("Avoid Eye Contact")

There you have it. Have fun! And don't be pants.

Or if you're not into etiquette and being polite, maybe you'll enjoy the Onion's Guide to 10 US Olympians to Watch.
