Subject: Re: Dutch kiss

"Dutch kiss" is in DARE, of course. One citation, from Wisconsin: "Dutch

kiss--the ordinary variety, but one takes hold of the ears of the kissee.

Very satisfactory end of a row, since it is exclusively a female's and

children's kiss, and the kisser can get one last bit of revenge with a sharp

pinch of the lobe." Another: "Dutch kiss--hold nose and ear and kiss cheek."

From Kentucky: "Dutch kiss--a stolen kiss or one supposedly stolen."

To avoid vulgarities, don't even look in the Historical Dictionary of

American Slang.
