free hugs

There is no such thing as a free hug. That would violate the laws of thermodynamics. You can't win, you can't get even, you can't get out of the game--then you die. Translation: You can't get free hugs, you can't even trade hugs evenly, you can't stop the pursuit of free hugs--then you die.

What about a free as in freedom hug? Libre but not gratis
