The Most Kissed Girl in the World

"Her enigmatic smile is known to millions around the world and she has been kissed billions of times," says the always poetic Daily Mail of this lovely girl. Back in the 19th century, she was pulled dead out of the Seine and never identified, but all was not lost because she became somewhat of a legend, and her face was eventually used as the basis for Rescue Annie, the dummy that's used to teach people CPR. So now she spends her days lying around on dusty YMCA floors all over the country getting "kissed."

Annie, are you OK? Are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?

So locking one's mouth in tight seal and exhaling is what someone at the Daily Fail thinks constitutes "kissing."

@City_Dater are you telling me i've been doing it wrong this whole time?

@paisami:But think of all the lives you saved! (Hey, did I just call you a slut?)

Oh, I say one should also inhale and suck some tongue too!

As soon as I read the words Rescue Annie I got that awful rubber taste in my mouth and vague sense of panic caused by attempting to 'save the life' of an inanimate object. Pavlov's CPR?

Speaking as a former EMT:
Annie. I FUCKING HATE HER AND HER STUPID SWEATSUIT!!!
That is the only reaction you can have after years and thousands of hours with her.

@SuperMargie I feel your pain. What was the child one called? I think we had a name for him, but not sure if it was universal.

Though I do remember as a prank one night dressing him up in regular clothes (much less identifiable than his polyester tracksuit), and leaving him sticking out from under the front wheels of a fellow EMT's car. In a semi-lit parking lot it was apparently *very* realistic, and gave him a nice scare.

@formergr We don''t use our Annie anymore, so now she is strictly a torture device.

She ends up in the back of every new cop's squad car now. Sometimes a bathroom stall.

I always thought it was Resusci Annie, as in "resuscitate"?

She looks pretty happy! I guess drowning isn't so bad!

Funny that's just how I spend my days too.
