Way back in ancient times, the evil American Sun Kings and Queens of Temperance declared that the rabble should sober up. This didn't sit well with the rabble, who quickly defected to more 'spirited' personality cults, such as the ones led by charismatics like St. Bugs and the legendary St. Alphonse. In the course of establishing the only religion honest enough to call itself Organized Crime, these beatific bootleggers became fierce, bitter and violent rivals for the lucrative tithing of the parched and desperately sober masses.
Like most profitable religions, Organized Crime soon sparked it's share of competition, internal conflict, bloodshed and corruption; and so, on Feb. 14, 1929, missionaries from the Capone Church, aided by Centurions on loan from the Chicago Police Legion , decided that the Bugs Boys needed some Holy Reformation. They took a half-dozen or so Moran followers into a garage on Clark Street and nailed them to the wall with hundreds of .45 caliber Theses.
Today, we use roses and candlelight dinners to mark that occasion.
This makes poetic sense if your love life resembles mine; for your sake I hope that it doesn't.
If it does, I'm truly sorry. Maybe it'd help if I offered some priceless gift alternatives. By priceless, I mean worthless. Buy them for yourself, it may the only attention you'll get on the 14th.

EMOTIONAL TRAIN WRECK
No lights. No tunnel. Just derailment, gravity and inertia. You probably thought that you'd never need to wear a parachute on a train. You thought wrong.
A real bargain for only 76 cents!
EXPRESSIONS OF UNREQUITED LOVE
This could be that letter you wish that you'd torn up when you had the chance. Maybe it's that necklace you knew that she'd love-the one you purchased the day before she told you she wasn't looking for a relationship. Perhaps it's three weeks of unreturned phone calls. It might be a horribly embarrassing love poem or song that fell into the wrong hands.
Two lousy bucks.This item knows no limits , so don't be such a cheap-ass.
