"Question Everything!" Whatever you do - don't try this on a cop!
In a campaign stop on Sunday October 7, 2012 in Port St Lucie, Florida, the Republican nominee and wife Ann stopped by the Tin Fish Restaurant for some seafood and allow a photo op.
During the photo op, owner Joseph Melluso gave Romney's face a vigorous wipe down with some napkins. Romney laughed hesitantly before leaning back out of the chef's reach, saying: 'Thank you, thank you... you're next. It's a little rainy out there.'
After the first couple of pictures were taken, Mr Melluso took another look at the candidate and reached again to remove something from the corner of his lip, to which a startled Romney exclaimed: 'I got it!"
Romney looked a bit uncomfortable during the situation before jetting on to Virginia the next day. Security for Romney didn't find it necessary to intervene.
Melluso must have had a very doting mother.
