Cultural Anthropology 101: How they greet each other in Lawrence


When traveling to Lawrence, Kansas, the local custom is for one man to touch another man on the boob. It's kind of like Europe, where they kiss each other on the cheek(s), but less chic and more awkward.

Under no circumstance is a man supposed to greet a woman by touching her boob. In their culture, that's just "icky".

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
