In light of recent events we thought it was about time we had a completley fluffy, "and finally..." type of news story - so here's a nice one we spotted earlier today.
The world record for the longest kiss has been broken by a London couple who managed to snog for the ridiculously long time of 31 hours, 30 minutes and 30 seconds.
The couple managed this singularly pointless feat in the romantic surroundings of the Plaza Shopping Centre on Oxford Street last Wednesday (they weren't 'snogging against terrorism' or anything like that, thank the Lord).
Throughout the record attampt James and Sophia were "not allowed to sit, or fall asleep, could only take sustenance through a straw and had to stay kissing even while visiting the toilet."
Coincidentally enough, if you take that last quote and replace the word "kissing" with the word "typing" you get the first paragraph of the Londonist Office Rulebook.
