I like Kissing. Kissing when I wake up, Kissing when I go to sleep, Kissing every chance I get in between.
Now researchers have found that primates aren’t the only ones Kissing to feel better after a fight.
The close quarters of a rookery can be a lot like a crowded row-house neighborhood: Every now and then, there’s bound to be a fight. And after a nasty squabble with a neighbor, what better way to smooth those ruffled feathers than with a kiss at home? Bill-twining, which looks remarkably like kissing, is rooks’ chosen way to ease their tempers, reports experimental psychologist Amanda Seed from the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. Such behavior has long been known among primate species, such as chimpanzees, but this is the first time it’s been documented in birds.
There’s a lesson from the birds about the birds and bees.
Had a tough day at work? Kiss.
A little spat with the signifigant other? Kiss.
Neighbor pissing you off with his lawnmower at 7 AM? Kiss.
Horny? Start with a Kiss and go from there.
Remember, you heard it here first!
