Kelly Ripa: French Kiss Enters the French Dictionary

The French kiss has finally entered the French dictionary this year. Apparently, the phrase has always been an oversight in France, finally being added last week. The French term for French kiss, galocher, was given to the term because it is similar to the word for an ice skating boot. The idea was that French kissing is like sliding around on the ice.


Kelly Ripa also explained that French kissing came to America after soldiers in World War I came home from the war. Europe has always had a reputation for being more advanced in that field and American had European customs forced on them by their soldier husbands.

“Are French fries in the dictionary?” Michael wanted to know.

Michael Strahan: Paper Towels Vs Hand Dryer – Which is More Hygienic?

Do you use paper towels or a hand dryer? According to a new study, paper towels are more hygienic because they actually wipe the bacteria off your hands and the scrubbing motion helps get rid of germs. The hand dryer is less hygienic because it can spread out germs by blowing them around the bathroom.

Lucky for Kelly, she used both. She said she washes her hands and uses a paper towel to turn off the sink. Then she uses the air dryer to dry her hands and another paper towel to open the bathroom door.

Kelly and Michael are super neat freaks. Michael said he also uses the paper towels when he has to open the doors.
