No Hugs For You

Throngs of angry Australians aren’t feeling very chummy after a 12-year-old girl there was punished for hugging her friend.

School administrators responded to public outrage by saying Rome first received a ‘verbal warning.’ The principal says the ‘no hugging’ rule was first imposed after parents complained about children sustaining “hug-related injuries.”
