Oh boy… Where to begin.
For starters, the all-caps EXCLUSIVE Web headline for this New York Daily News article seems largely unnecessary. Without even Google-checking, we’re pretty sure no one else tried to beat the paper to this anti-Super Bowl week punch.
Secondly, the article seems to have mixed up info about a couple of male customers of Cuddle U NYC prominently featured in the accompanying photos. Both are 46; both are first-named David; both are IT specialists. Hmm. Sounds more like the same, single individual – Orr and Hunter last names notwithstanding.
Regardless of whether these David’s are in fact one or two, kudos to him/them for being willing to put their face(s) to Ms. Ali C.’s $80/hour Financial District hornets nest. (She also offers $200 cuddle-with-movie and $500 overnight options, but no one has purchased those yet.)
Finally, while there is a fair amount to choose from, this sentence gets our *hug* for best unintentional laugh:
A city Law Department spokesman said the agency wasn’t aware of any statutes on the books that govern cuddling.
