Harlequin, one of the largest romance novel publishers, thinks they've got a shot at locking down a patent for the "essential romantic kiss." We figured this timeless tradition was far past patentable, but they're certainly making a case for it. The Canadian company is looking to patent a specific brand of lip-locking. According to a press release, it's a way for "two people (to) reciprocate their romantic feelings toward one another in a manner that deepens attachment, provides pleasure and promotes physical and emotional well-being—the essential romantic kiss."
