Joy Behar Kisses Whoopi In "The View" Swine Flu Demonstration (VIDEO)

Joy Behar gave Whoopi Goldberg a surprise kiss on the lips Thursday morning on "The View" while demonstrating the best way to greet people to avoid swine flu.

After Barbara Walters had expressed reservations about kissing — or even shaking hands with — the guests who come on the program, Joy showed off the germ-free way to greet someone: the elbow bump.

She then demonstrated the range of other options, from fist bump to handshake to cheek kiss, before surprising Whoopi with a kiss on the lips.

"I'm foaming at the mouth that was so good," Whoopi said.
