Well...Happy VD and all that mushy stuff!

Last week I told you about my younger sister who used to embarrass the conversation hearts right out of us by yelling loud and clear every Valentines Day to anyone who would listen, "Happy VD!"

And we sisters, being all kinds of mature and all and not laughing over swear words like "The Hoover DAM!" and "Su-SEX, England" were suitable mortified each and every year.

If you missed that amazing literary link, please feel free to click here so you don't go to your grave regretting not reading it.

But because I am the master of tangents and not timing, I am now left Valentine-postless on the actual day because I shared this meaningful post LAST week.

...

Grrrr...


So sinced I mucked up that whole timing thing, I had to dig around on the internet to find some funny VD wishes for you!




And to complete this romantic and heart-warming post, I am going to share a little poem with you. There is a horribly mean person who hosts a meme called "Saturday Centus" and this week she made us write a Hallmark style Valentine wish around this ridiculous picture using only fifty words! To read other mushy works of art based on this soul touching graphic,click here.



Ahem....

Some say love, it is a bulldog,
Dressed in Wonderwoman clothes
Some say love, it’s droopy brown eyes
And a large, black sniffing nose.
Some say love, can be surprising
And sometimes very kind.
But if you think this dog’s romantic…
Some say you would be quite blind.


...

...

Sometimes I just get carried away with the romanticism of VD!

You're overwhelmed, aren't you?

Yeah. Me too!

Sigh...

I love those vintage cards. Valentines were more fun in those days...and I'd forgotten all the little puns and jokes they used to use.

As for your dog-accompanying poem? Top notch!

Ahhhhh, romance...

;)

"Alone again.... naturally!" said...

Love the cute little dog, but he/she does not look impressed by his/her costume!

Those children's Valentines are kind of scary. I love your little poem, especially the last line. So true. I also love that you and your sisters joked about suSEX, England.

Happy Valentine's and, moreover, Chocolate Day, Jenny.

Nezzy said...

I just adore those little vintage Valentine cards. Ya just can't find good ones these days. Boy, do I ever sound dated??? Heeehehehe!!!

5thsister said...

Oh sweet Jenny...you never fail to crack me up! I loved, loved, loved your ode to VD! Unfortunately, the younger set today have no idea what this references as the lingo now is STD. (Isn't that a gasoline additive?) Yikes I'm old!

Nancy Jane said...

Hysterical...as always a cut above!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Okay...now I'm going to be humming The Rose and thinking about a bulldog...thanks alot, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Gattina said...

Of course I didn't know what VD meant, now, thanks to you I feel more instructed !
Mr. G and I have never celebrated Valentine's day because it just didn't exist. It moved into Belgium and other countries slowly slowly coming from the USA just as Halloween each year a little more !Business is business !
Merry Christmas !

Poetic Justice said...

Hysterical! Happy Love Day to you too Jenny!

Tgoette said...

Ahh Jenny, such a touching and sweet VD card! I've seen lots of VD cards, but none ooze sentiment quite like yours. Awesome job!

Rekha said...

Love the eggy valentine...
some say love can make you fall
become deaf, dumb, blind, woozy
on your accord...
some say love makes you mushy
and come up with your kind of sentimentality. ;D

Gems said...

I love the vintage cards...they get the point out so well! Your SC post was really cute...I had such a hard time with it..you must have had such a laugh at all our struggles. Many did actually create some amazing entries, and I really enjoyed reading them. Good ol' VD fun!

Anna said...

Oh Jenny,
This was really good! What has Hallmark said about it? I gather that you have already sent a portfolio to them!
