Free Hugs Ain't Free -vwv

This is quite bo liao but I was thinking about those guys who walk around with signboards displaying the words "Free Hugs" on them, when I realized they aren't really giving out free hugs at all. For every supposedly free hug they give you, you are giving them one back. It's a one for one exchange, not exactly my idea of free.

A truly free hug would be if I tell these people, "Go hug a tree!" and they do it, then that's a free hug.

Are they giving them out in Singapore already? That was originally our idea.

I think when they mean 'free' they mean unconditional. It's perfectly up to the individual if they want a 'free' hug. Just stand as still as a tree and its yours for free. But most people do actually reciprocate...cos it's weird if you don't.
