PostSubject: Mexicans kiss UK Record Goodbye   Tue Feb 17, 2009 2:09 am

Mexico has stolen Britain's world kissing record after nearly 40,000 people locked lips on Valentine's Day.

Some 39,897 people crowded into the Mexican capital for the group smooch - easily beating the UK's record when 32,648 people puckered up in Weston-super-Mare.

"There are 42,225 people on site, but unfortunately you did not all participate in the record," said Carlos Martinez, who verified the event for Guinness World Records.

Tourists chiefs organised the kiss-off in Mexico City's Zocalo main square in protest at the soaring drug violence in the country, which claimed more than 6,000 lives last year.

Organisers said it also aimed to send a message to a local mayor who tried to ban kissing in the public square.

"We did it! Long live Mexico," said singer Susana Zavaleta, who serenaded the crowd with the classic Mexican ballad "Besame Mucho," or "Kiss Me a Lot".

The giant Zocalo was half-filled as mostly young couples embraced and held one another in a lip lock for 10 seconds.

As the crowds gathered, workers in cupid wings offered hugs, teenage boys carried signs volunteering their kissing services, and couples practised openly in the streets.

"We love demonstrating our love in front of everyone and in front of our family," said Lucia Gutierrez, 38, who spent the afternoon rehearsing with her boyfriend Vicente Romero, 34.

"There's nothing bad about showing your love."

Benito Zavala, 53, who works in a nearby store, said he did not have time to go home to get his wife.

So he planned to help set the record with his two-year-old Chihuahua, Onix.
