TRENTON, NJ - Chris Christie has followed the Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School, and has banned hugging anywhere in New Jersey.
“We are a no hugging state,” Governor Chris Christie reportedly told reporters yesterday. “If we catch anyone hugging it will be a $100 fine for the first offense, $250 or the second offense and $1,000 for the third. After that, it’s jail.”
Christie got the idea from Matawan school district that decided that middle school children shouldn’t hug each other. “It’s not normal or natural,” said school superintendent John Jacobus. “If kids hug, then the next thing you know there having babies and we can’t have that happen in our school.”
Governor Christie doesn’t mind if people hug, but he thought it was a good way to raise revenue for the state. “We need money, and hugs are something that can generate a good deal of revenue for our state.”
“It’s stupid, I’ve never heard of such a thing. Why can’t you hug?” New Jersey resident Steve Smallwood said. “That’s how we grew up, with affection. You hug, you kiss.”
