Now You See It: Attempted kisses lead to disses

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK, NY (WPIX/CNN) - Kissing should be like riding a bike, you never forget how. Therefore, it can get awkward when your puckered lips get left hanging.

The Italian who won stage two of the Tour de France knows that all too well as the traditional kisses from the podium girls got a little awkward. The first kiss goes fine, but the second girl leaves him hanging, and he is stuck pretending to fix his own collar. 

The cyclist, however, is in good company when it comes to having his lips left in limbo. Even former Presidents end up in puckered up purgatory.

Hillary Clinton was the intended target, but Bill Clinton ended up kissing air while Hillary turned away, and was kissed by then Presidential nominee Barack Obama.

Obama himself had his share of kissing mishaps when he accidentally kissed his Vice President's wife right on the smacker. The Vice President, in turn, found himself in a three-way kissing muddle.

Talking about having your kiss dissed, singer Erykah Badu was clowning around in a WPIX reporter's live shot, and then tried to kiss him. Badu eventually tweeted "Sorry, Mario" to the reporter. 

Miley Cyrus was denied by Katy Perry when Miley went a little too far with her tongue.

A lot of kissing confusion can be blamed on the age old angle dilemma. A German researcher concluded after spying on 124 couples that 65% of people tilt their heads to the right rather than the left when going in for a kiss.

President Obama was in the minority, tilting to the left when kissing Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Don't blame his left-handedness. Many famous movie kisses start with a right tilt like in the movie Titanic.

Though Carey Grant plays it both ways in "Notorious," the German researcher thinks it's a womb thing: Babies in their last few weeks in the womb tend to turn their heads to the right.

When it comes to rejecting affection, US goalkeeper Tim Howard is still blocking- in this case, blocking a fan's hug.

It's no fun being rejected, all puckered up with no place to go.
