Your Daily Dose Of Cynicism

A not so happy comic by Gabrielle Bell about the three empty words that far too many people will feel obliged to say to someone today because of a third century Roman guy died on this day a long long time ago…

DC Comics Valentines

Aquaman dc-comics-valentines-c-1978-1980

 

These Valentines Day Cards featuring DC characters are cringeworth, but also quite cool. Also if you want to know why I chose Aquaman as the header image for this post, it’s because I don’t think he gets enough exposure, he’s a dancing master!

Steak Bouquet: For the Person Who Loves Meat as Much as You Love Them

Not only is this a good idea but if someone asks you what you got your partner for Valentines day you could reply with “I gave her the beef” which I think is a euphemism and a half.

This was created by Antony Bowness of Quality Standard Beef and Lamb which is a butchers in Teweksbury in Gloucestershire:

I get asked every year what I’d like for Valentine’s Day and I never know what to suggest. Soppy cards aren’t really my thing and it got me thinking about what I could make for other men out there like me. I had a ‘Eureka’ moment one day when a customer came in with a bunch of flowers. I started playing around with the idea and realized it was actually quite easy to do! I mean if you can make a dress from meat, then why not a bunch of roses?

52 Reasons Deck of Cards

It’s that time of year where people get sentimental and soppy, while I’m against the over commercialization of Valentines Day the sentiment it almost acceptable. This project by PaperVine is quite creative transform an old deck of cards into a deck of 52 reasons you love your significant other.

Is there a Valentines equivalent to “Bah Humbug?” I still want to express a certain amount of cynicism for the holiday in general…
