Sand in Orifices to Honor the Famous Surf Smooch
We never would have suspected, but the most hard fought competition in the Baja Ha-Ha has become the Here To Eternity Kiss contest, which celebrates the most famous smooch in film history, the adulterous one in the crashing Hawaiian surf between Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in the 1953 classic flick From Here To Eternity.
The Ha-Ha version — the only one in the world, we might add — takes places at the end of the Ha-Ha in the warm waters of Bahia Cabo San Lucas. Unlike previous years, in which the Grand Poobah had to sometimes cajole folks to get participants, this year there were many volunteers. We presume the surge in participation was in response to the recent death of Kerr.
The competition got off to a bang, with one couple dumbfounding their daughers with a rolling embrace in the sand-filled surf. They were followed by another 10 or so equally amorous couples. While Chris and Victoria Nugier of the Sonora-based Fraser 51 Wingstar — "We have three kids and have been married for 16 years" — won the prize, every couple had been a ‘contenda’.
