Cupid's mace by depleted Cupid's mace by depleted
sometimes an arrow doesn't cut it.

having been tardy for Christmas i figured i'd get the jump on a Valentine's day theme. nothing says love like a metal object suitable for breaking bones, crushing skulls and squishing organs.

:heart:

happy Valentine's to all the bitter, lonely, monkeys falling in and out of love.

nothing says sweet loving like a spiked metal ball to the face.

exactly! and yet you wouldn't believe how many people seem to have problems with that friendly little display of affection.

especially in public.

and with total strangers.

'all the bitter, lonely, monkeys falling in and out of love'

hummmmmm........maybe they all need a lesson in commitment, but then few can pass that test....first sign of trouble, the monkeys climb back up a tree.

That is the single most splendiferous grease nipple-festooned Nad masher I have ever seen. Oh, to feel it's spine-splintering wrath the moment BEFORE saying something stupid. Like "I love you".

eep! you said that. my condolences.

possibly the most touching love lines ever written were from a Killdozer song:

"I'd drag my balls through a mile of broken glass just to beat off on your shadow"

Hallmark was never that good.

"I'll drag my balls through broken glass, but I won't take out the trash or watch "Bridget Jones" again with you"

God, we're a complicated species.

i can picture a set of "lowered expectations" valentine's day cards out of this.

"be my Valentine and i promise not to fall asleep immediately after routine sex and premature ejaculation" or "if you really loved me you wouldn't tell everyone about the skidmarks in my undies"

What a refreshing sentiment!! I'd like to pick up a box of those, I'm running out of the cards I've been using the last few years; the ones that provide the ultimate reassurance of true love with "I'm still here, aren't I?"

That may seem strange to those who have only experienced short-term romance, the kind that still involves physical contact other than bitch slapping :P

when i'm running low on cards i white out the writing and recycle the old ones that say "at least you don't have aids"

you mean there's more to physical contact? i knew something was missing from the relationship...

that was before amazing advancements in modern lubricating oils and jellies.

ooh. :idea: what a great brand name for personal lubricant.

"this is your heart on romance"<?i> < 3
