Funny Valentine's Day greetings and ads
I will be taking a temporary hiatus from Hubpages in order to finish some other pressing work, but before taking off I wanted to leave readers with something a little special for the season. So I went through my collection of unusual cards and advertisements and came across some holiday-themed stuff I thought you might get a kick out of. I hope you enjoy them and I wish all of you a beautiful and loving Valentine's Day!
This card is either three letters short of a tender message or the sender is one step away from calling a marriage counselor. I'll let you decide which.
I'll assume this sender's bunk buddies just don't do it for him any more...
You don't often come across sentiments with this depth of passion.
Is this an example of greeting card editor screw-up or is it just short on subtlety? I'm not sure.
The recipient of this one must be good at exhausting their lovers...or they tend to get creatively kinky with moving vehicles.
It's good to know the classic sentiments are still strong. But I suspect trying to live up to this sentiment may take divine assistance to carry out.
Valentine's Day advertisements
Now here's a novel gift idea for men...if they don't mind spending Valentine's Day sitting on a foam-filled doughnut.
And a gift idea for the wife who has everything except a good reason to stay married.
Nothing says I love you like a romantic getaway. And nothing says cheapskate like the wafting perfume of rotting garbage.
Yep, there's nothing better than taking an intimate holiday away from your own kids..unless it's holidaying with other people's kids.
I wonder if the amenities in this one include a free emergency room visit?
If you confuse paradise with a weekend at Church camp maybe, just maybe, it's time to buy a Webster's Dictionary.
I don't need to wear my religious beliefs on my sleeve, but yeah, I can get behind this message.
Poor Brad! I don't know where he buys lingerie, but if the price tag on the teddy is as much as a stay at the hospital he really needs to do some comparative shopping. So I think the real message in this one may be foolhardy shopping choices destroy credit balances.
Romance-themed vacation ads
Ok, is it just me or does a glowing green building in the middle of a city ravaged by atomic bombing in the not-very-distant-past put a little damper on your tourist interest?
Without doubt, India is a beautiful land with an ancient, rich heritage...but after seeing this ad, you gotta wonder if the intention isn't actually to stave off tourism instead of welcome it?
Thankfully our cats already had their hearts set on Dollywood when they saw this one. Otherwise, I guess we'd be making a time-consuming trip to the passport office.
