If there was ever a day the epitomizes or encourages the giving of cheesy trinkets, Valentine’s Day is it. That’s not to say I myself don’t endulge in any of it. I’m married–of course I’m a sucker for all of it.
But I do have my limits. I mean my God, how would you like to wake up and have your significant other give you this?
That was taken in 2003 in a 99-Cent Only store in Las Vegas. Maybe they have a follow-up one that reads “I Hope We Never Split” in case your wife doesn’t like this one. And before you ask, no, I don’t know what the hell I was doing in a 99-Cent Only store while visiting the gambling mecca of the universe.
And then there’s this. I suppose it’s aimed at kids, but I still got a laugh out of it. Shades of The Simpsons, no doubt.
Or maybe I’m bitter about all of this because Valentine’s Day just also happens to be my birthday. I’ll be 38 in two days. Yikes.
