GRANDCHILDREN have confirmed that kissing elderly relatives is like putting your mouth against a crypt.
Youngsters have spoken out in support of government advice that they should not be forced to kiss their grandparents.
Eight-year-old Tom Logan said: “Granny’s skin is thin and crinkly like an Egyptian scroll.
“After kissing her cheek I have to use a toothbrush on my lips because of the dead person taste.”
Logan’s stepfather Roy Hobbs said: “We always encourage him to give granny a peck on the cheek when saying goodbye.
“Of course there’s no way I’d do that, the very thought of it makes me nauseous.”
