THAI COUPLE SETS NEW RECORD FOR LONGEST KISS: PATTAYA, Thailand (AP) — For the second time in three years, a Thai couple has set a new record for the longest kiss, locking their lips for 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds in a Valentine's Day "kissathon."

Ekkachai and Laksana Tiranarat from Bangkok emerged victorious Thursday in what organizers said was the longest recorded smooch in history. The milestone must still be verified by officials from Guinness World Records.

The pair, who also won the annual contest in 2011, received a 100,000 baht ($3,300) cash prize and two diamond rings.

The event began Tuesday with nine couples. The contestants were not allowed to sit, rest or sleep. They also had to go to the bathroom together with their lips locked.

Last year's record, set by two Thai men, was about 50½ hours.

BUNNIES TAKING TOLL ON CARS AT DENVER AIRPORT: DENVER (AP) — Silly rabbits.

The furry creatures are wreaking havoc on cars parked at Denver International Airport by eating spark plug cables and other wiring.

To stop the problem, federal wildlife workers are removing at least 100 bunnies a month while parking companies install better fences and build perches for predator hawks and eagles.

Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale says that out of 4.3 million parking transactions in 2012, three claims were submitted for rodent or rabbit damage, and none was submitted with a claim for towing.

KCNC-TV reports there's another way to stop the damage that can cost thousands of dollars to repair.

Mechanics say coating the wires with fox or coyote urine can rob the rabbits of their appetite. Fox urine can be purchased at many hunting shops.

PA. WOMAN MAKES SPECTACLE OF SELF, RETURNS GLASSES: MONROEVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A woman has returned a pair of $2,000 eyeglasses she stole from a Pittsburgh-area shop after she made a spectacle of herself when surveillance video of the heist was broadcast on the local TV news.

Brad Childs, vice president of the Eyetique in Penn Center, tells WPXI-TV that the woman called the store after the station broadcast the video of Wednesday night's theft.

The woman, who isn't being identified and has not been charged by police, can be seen taking the glasses from a locked case while a man distracted a sales clerk.

Childs says the woman phoned him "after she saw herself on the news and asked me what we could do."

Police in Wilkins Township haven't decided whether the woman will be charged.

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (AP) — Police in the Cayman Islands say a woman drove off an intruder by biting him. It cost her a tooth, though.

Police Chief Inspector Robert Scotland says the woman was home alone when she woke up to find a man standing over her bed. Scotland told The Associated Press on Friday that the woman bit the intruder when he put his hand over her mouth. He then fled.
