Free Hugs!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4

Sometimes, a hug is all what we need. Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.

In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.

As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.

In the Spirit of the free hugs campaign, PASS THIS TO A FRIEND and HUG A STRANGER! After all, If you can reach just one person...

Hugging causes global warming, kills snail darters, threatens the spotted owl, depletes ozone, and has been linked to tooth decay. shameful stuff, that hugging.

explain global warming then. did you read about the hikers on mount hood who fell off an ice ledge and survived by hugging to stay warm! Dangerous thing to just go around hugging all willy nilly, with no regard to the future of this planet. I give out cold pricklies, not warm fuzzies! Save the whales!!!! SAVE YOURSELF!!!!

But not cheaper.

Boat friends like you for what you have. Lose the boat, lose the friends. Hug friends are forever.

Seriously. You won't know how many friends you have until people find out you have a boat.

Boats help ease global warming. All that spilled beer cools things off. Aquatic free hugs are okay, as the water keeps the heat down too.

Actually if it were me doing that, I would be a little smarter. I would put FREE HUGS on one side of the sign and then I HAVE AIDS on the other side. Then I would only display the FREE HUGS sign to hawt chicks.

Yea I was thinking I should do that. I'll bring Siu. Well... I'll hold the sign and she can laugh from afar. But I definitely think it would be cool.

I love hugs!

I think its a neat concept. I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable hugging just anybody though.
