A smiling life-like big brother, sister or nanny standing upright with their arms outstretched (www.realdoll.com). Positioned in the workplace or in a shopping centre, you simply walk up and put your arms around it. The doll then gives you a warm affectionate hug. He/She then speaks in a soothing, sincere
and caring manner the following...
"There there, you've done very well, I'm really proud of you. The boss really likes your work, well done."
"Don't worry dear, the shopping will be over soon, now run back to your wife and don't worry about the bank balance."
This type of doll would also be helpful to some of the HB submission authors.

||Somewhere to hang your string of onions from, whilst you do up your shoelaces.
||I once thought of having a hugging post for humans, but then I realized how pathetic that made me sound.
||Why ? ,people have been hugging trees for a long time. It's called Folking in Malaysia.
||Yeah, this is kinda creepy to me. Why not go down to the local nursing home and hug a shut-in?
||Nice link, [Amos]. That would be fun to hug, 4 sher.
||Decidedly much safer than hugging an M80, which could result in having shorter arms.
||I dunno [Rayf] - the M8 and M80 seem to be equally busy, from what I remember in my time in Scotland. Maybe, one day, both will become 6-lane motorways.
||Hugging the M8 would be a disaster. The M80 is a little 'un. I could throw a stone (well - almost) from my gaff and hit a passing lorry on the M8 in Glasgow and I can clearly state I will never ever hug it.
It smells. It ruins my car insurance premiums. It has flows of traffic joining from the right and the left - normally wanting to leave immediately on the left and the right. It still exists as an A road, in parts, and can quite literally be compared to the wacky races - thats on a good day.
It just generally doesn't deserve a hug. Trust me.
||Firecrackers, man. Think firecrackers.
||My brother used to have something like that... only for some reason he hid her in his closet when he deflated her. And I'm not sure if she actually said anything,
