HUG, v. very a. To-to- What the devil does it mean, anyhow?
2007 Update: To shackle with bonds of affection while the bands of irons reach welding temperature.
Here, let me scald you! First! Minka, where art thou?
Hug, n. The most feared weapon in the arsenal of the visiting aunt.
hug: a pedal prop for a hot engine.
Hug: To smoother in an abundance of bussoms.
hug - An act, that when it is done, makes one snug as a bug in a rug.
Hug: The greeting of approval from my Amazing A.
i could use one right about now.
Hug: Fatah and Hamas could use one of these about now.
After a brisk frisking, of course.
I'll give you one, Neva! (((hugs)))
I received an abundance of hugs on Saturday. I'm just that lovable.
hug -- soon I hope. Better keep packing.
Hug: The squeeze that pleases.
Did Ambrose actually define HUG?
G, it burns!
a4g, hand-to-hand, yes. In the WMD department there's the gallon of perfume.
Now that's funny, Mule. I can almost recreate your trip to Memphis from it.
Nessa, you make it sound like a good thing.
Poobah, so it's like murder?
Sar, send one to your daughter from Williedog.
Neva, is Saturday still ok?
Jenna, did you check your wallet Sunday?
Quill, it's a funny thing, when you think about. A squeeze in place that moves you 2000 miles.
Well, TLP, in the manner above, yes.
hug, n. a suffocating embrace that turns you into a stick or the rock that keeps you from drowning
neva, hold on! *opens arms*

Hug: the gift from the heart that's returned before it's unwrapped.
Battle cry of the beleaguered and/or sincere? "Two Arms! Two Arms!"
*races over to lovely Penguin to grab a piece of the "rock"* ; )
Hug: My specialty. Yes, I'm a hugger. Had I known Ambrose, he would most cetainly have know what a hug was, and he would have LIKED it!
The only thing I know is that I busted my ass to get here before midnight your time and I deserve one of those.
HUG: The best non-verbal form of communication there is. Also, see "best medicine". Those of the bear variety are even better.
Hug? Doug? What is this place coming to. Ambrose is spinning so fast in his grave that I can feel the wind from here!!
Hugs are great. I freely admit to being a hugger.
*sends a big one winging over to Neva*
lover's straight jacket
Minka, you're going to drown Neva?
Ariel, that's so straightforward I think I'll just say hi.
Clever, Neva. You sure recovery well.
Jamie Dawn, I have no doubt. Chocolate truffle-eaters are often huggers while truffle-eaters are usually French swine.
You got it, Cooper.
Terry, I think I've had crows all wrong. Gimme a "Nevermore" or something.
