So the BBC provides hugging tips and Twitter overreacts with hot takes.

The thing is, as usual it's mainly the people who feel that the BBC is too "fair" to the other side, so want to scrap the license fee, and take any opportunity to make the BBC look bad.
There is an overlap between these people and people who have denied Covid is real, and/or attacked science/vaccines/any basic common sense guidelines designed to stop the spread. I'll bet they scoffed at "how to wash hands" tips, and still don't wash their hands.

So yeah, a guide on hugging is something normal sensible people don't need, however considering the ones complaining are... these people, then it's very likely they're actually the ones who need the advice.

Well, of course people will take issue with the pictures, one is an interracial couple and in the other picture someone is hugging a child, do you have ANY IDEA what that can mean?!

And smiling. A year and a half where I didn't have to pretend to smile, it's like being back in graduate school, high school, and engaged all over again

It has been so nice to not have to smile all the time and just let my rbf rbf all damn day long without anyone asking me what's wrong or why am I so sad.
I'm not sad, I'm just not the farking Joker and either should you be.

Not having people touch me, shake my hand, sneeze in my face, crowd me, or show off their rotten teeth and stink breath for the last year has not at all been worth the pandemic and nearly 600k dead Americans but it's been a tiny silver lining that I'm holding tightly to.

Monday is a bit early for the weekly BBC bashing article from the Express.

They must of moved the "Kate is the new Dianna" to Wednesday and "the evil Witch Megan" to Friday.

Speaking earlier this week Boris Johnson said people will be able to hug from Monday if they "exercise care and common sense".

I'm not hugging anyone who doesn't have the personal hygiene to even comb his hair.

I was born in Britain & didn't necessarily like hugging - but this pandemic isolation has affected me & I'm now looking forward to "hugging it out" with family & friends. I also teared up a bit typing this.
People got to hug, kiss & riot after those world war thingees.

I'm not sure. I think I bought it in Okinawa twenty years ago. It might be a shīsā, based on a lion, but who knows?
