And there have been some doozies over the years.
If you haven’t heard from every Facebook post, every TV station, every radio broadcast, every bloody headline on every east coast website, it’s snowing!
Yes, it’s snowing. Fluffy, cold, white stuff is falling out of the sky, and it’s making people soil themselves.
Also if you haven’t heard from every commercial on both TV, radio and those incessant autoplay website ads (the owners of the sites that have those should be stabbed repeatedly with plastic sporks), tomorrow is also Valentine’s Day.
In commemoration of both, here’s Drudge’s headline this morning.
Really? A day created to boost sales of stupid greeting cards, jewelry, flowers and those ridiculous gigantic, $100 stuffed bears (anyone who gets me one of those will see that stupid thing dismembered and set on fire) is ruined because of snow?
The stupid is bold with this one.
You don’t need Valentine’s Day to celebrate your love for each other. You don’t need a greeting card holiday to show one another your love. You don’t need fancy dinners, jewelry and chocolate to prove your love on one day during the year. Frankly, if you need all those things, you might want to reconsider your relationship!
No, Valentine’s Day is not ruined. Snuggle in front of a fire. Light some candles. Have Chinese takeout picnic-style on your living room floor. Take a bath together. Watch a movie cuddled up on the couch – or in bed. Do what people do in bed.
You know for whom Valentine’s Day is ruined? For all those who hope to cash in on the vapid, shallow idea that you need one day a years to show someone that you love that you love them.
So Drudge, please shut up. You’re making me weep even more for humanity than I already do!
And while you’re trapped in the house watching the snow flakes fall outside, look at this happy fox.
