Thais set record with 2½-day kiss


A kiss lasting nearly 2½ days has propelled a Thai couple to a new record for the world’s longest smooch.

Hospital security guard Ekkachai Tiranarat, 44, and 33-year-old housewife Laksana locked lips for 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds, smashing last year’s record by more than eight hours.

Competition rules required contestants to remain on their feet throughout, eat and drink through a straw and even go to the toilet while continuing to press their lips together.
