Posted:On the Monday of falmouth, whilst most people were packing up MintSauce, Tao Star, Rossco Bossco and Me (if i remember correctly) developed the "Hug Theory"



This is, that if you walk up to someone, with your arms open, your body and head slightly tilted - they will hug you,



Now we instantly field tested this theory, on the unsuspecting victims... uh i mean... spinners:

Bovril Monkey

Simian

2bags

Mags

and PyroWill.

It worked.



Therefore, I recommend everyone going out and trying it on strangers on the street and telling me how it worked.

Posted:also, the more huggable the person, the less you have to angle your arms. for those who often avoid hugs, more of a swooping action is recommended...

strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

I'm all for hugginess, especially in festival land. With a complete strangers elsewhere though, it's just a recipe for a smack in the mouth.

When i don't know the people i always ask before i hug them, some people don't like to be touched by strangers, use the smiling experiment for a few years now. That means when you smile to a person they will smile to antoher etc. etc. etc.
