Things got awkward when 54-year-old Kimberly Margeson visited her 30-year-old son William Partridge at the Yates County jail in upstate New York.

That's because the big open mouth kiss mom planted when greeting her boy included quite a bit of tongue. ("So that's how it is in their family," we can hear Mr. Rooney say.)

But there was a lot more to the display than the swapping of spit. In fact, the inappropriate lip-lock was to mask something even more nefarious -- Margeson was using her tongue to pass Partridge two pills of Oxycodone mouth-to-mouth.

Prison guards realized what was going on and intervened in the transaction. Now Margeson has been charged with third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and second-degree promotion of prison contraband. Partridge, who had only been in prison for three days when mom visited, is facing unrelated weapon's charges later this mouth.

We guess the lesson here is that if you want someone to use a French kiss to transfer contraband during a prison visit you're going to arose a lot less suspicion if the visitor isn't a close relative. Perhaps poor Partridge just didn't have that option.
