Times are tough. Hugs don't grow on trees.

In Soviet Denmark, cops pay you* for hug.

I hope the "What can I get for a $20" woman was a plant.

She looked pretty human to me. *

Anyhow, everyone knows trees get hugs for free.

Can't that woman do math? She can get ten hugs! Yeesh!

I laughed. Then hung my head in shame. Then laughed again.

Filthy light thief, please PayPal me $8 for the hate I am sending your way.

Hugs are fine and all, but if you are hurt and in the middle of the woods, even a $2 hug won't cut it. You need a snug. From The Snugler.

Whoa, is there a meme going around?

There was a guy selling hugs for $1 across the corner from the people giving out free hugs today. I got a free one.

sonic meat machine - only if I can hug you next time I see you, for no additional cost.

Well, filthy light thief, I don't normally do this, but I'll offer my hate + hug package at a 20% discount just this once.

Is there something extra that comes with the premium hug?

Because I can think of a few extra things that come with hugs, and I don't really want them.

Wow, I was really torn. That's a dick move, but that guy was really good at it. Love/hate.

I liked this, and didn't know why. Then I remembered that I hate hippies. Then I laughed some more.

You might get one of these (very mildly NSFW?).

Business hugs
posted by brevator at 7:23 PM on April 30, 2009


I don't get Tim and Eric. The business hug thing is ok, even kind of amusing, but the show has never gotten an actual laugh out of me. Seriously, what's the appeal here? Am I just helplessly uncool?

It requires a certain level of intoxication.

Christ, what an asshug.

I can't believe that all of MetaFilter doesn't find this hilarious. I'm genuinely shocked.

I'm with BP here. I was a little meh, with the odd smirk, but when we got the first customer, with the uplifting music and the ch-ching, I laughed fully. He might charge $2 for hugs, but the COMEDY GOLD is free!

Wait you guys got this video for free? I went to paytube and they charged me .05 cents.

[It smelled better though, so I win.]

I sent this to the local "free hugs" guy. He probably got a kick out of it.
