PopWatch asks: What is pop culture's WORST. KISS. EVER.?

Posted on

Maybe it’s because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Or maybe it’s because I spent a lot of yesterday watching MTV’s Jersey Shore marathon and had to relive all the nasty lip-locking of the show’s guidos and guidettes. But lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what pop culture’s ultimate WORST. KISS. EVER. is. Any thoughts?

From the photo here, you can quickly see a few of the ones that have grossed me out over the years: Snooki and “The Situation” making out in the Jersey Shore hot tub; Data and Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact; and Paula and Simon’s sesh during American Idol. All three want to make me curl up and die—or alternately run for the Celibate Hills.

But, honestly, there are tons—slash, millions!—more. In fact, tons that we’re not even picturing here. Others that come to mind: Any smooch between Izzie and George on Grey’s Anatomy; the time Charlotte was licked on Sex and the City; David Gest and Liza Minnelli.

Now, this is where you come in, dear PopWatchers, because I want your opinion: What is pop culture’s WORST. KISS. EVER.? And why? Sound off in the comments section, please!
