The Truth About Hugging,
According to Dear Abby         The Free Hugs video
Hugging is healthy.  It helps the body's immune system, it keeps you healthier,
it cures depression, it reduces stress, it induces sleep, it's invigorating & rejuvenating,
it has no unpleasant side effects, and hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug.
Hugging is all natural.  It is organic, naturally sweet, no pesticides, no preservatives,
no artificial ingredients, and 100% wholesome.  Hugging is practically perfect.  There
are no moveable parts, no batteries to wear out, no periodic check-ups, low energy
consumption, high energy yield, inflation-proof, non-fattening, no monthly payments,
no insurance required, theft-proof, non-taxable, non-polluting, and of course, fully returnable. Copyright © 2006 - 2014 Silver Linings Group, LLC
