Kissing Banned in England

It’s true. England actually banned kissing today to stop people from spreading germs. Fortunately, that was in 1439. And given the state of oral hygiene then, I’m guessing most people were not too disappointed. Fortunately, we’ve come a long way in 500 years. By 1969, lots of folks were happily (and legally) hugging and kissing each other as they watched the launch of Apollo 11 carry the first men to the Moon. Just nineteen years later, in another celestial occasion watched by a far smaller audience (okay, just family and friends), Michael J. Fox married Tracy Pollan*. I’m sure lots of kissing was involved.

So don’t get your knickers in a bunch. Go ahead and celebrate July 16 by giving your sweetie a smooch (or just hug a pet). Then sit back and enjoy the latest video from our Bejeweled Blitz cats. And have a happy Monday!
