and now, some valentime’s day trivia:

ur parents won't be too pleased when they find out what that heart REALLY means.

ah, valentimes.  the flowers.  the candy.  the last minute plunge into claustrophobia in the greeting card aisle at Walgreens. the annoying receptionist that makes sure you see the roses her fiancee sent her.  the bitter broads and brothers who gloom up your happy lovin’ ass with their LBS (lonely bitch status).  it’s all part and parcel.

i knew i wanted to blog about valentimes day, but i wanted to do something different than gush over having a boo/piss about not having a boo/picketing about how commercial a day it is.  i’m a history nerd, and my secret fetish is random trivia.  so, in the spirit of the holiday, here’s a bit for you.

this is how we draw a heart.  this is what a human heart really looks like.  …what the hell?  what art school reject submitted this design along with $100 to have it win the contest?  how did this happen?  i’ll tell you how it happened!

when you look at this,

there’s a good chance that you’re looking at some woman’s spread coochie.  or bent over behind.

it’s true!  i’m not just being nasty!  according to wikipedia (which, as we know, is always right), “considered to depict features of the human female body, such as the female’s buttocks, pubic mound, or spread vulva.”  it could also be inspired by the shape of a silphium seed, which was used as a contraceptive, but for comedic purposes, i’m clinging to the vajayjay/booty idea.

enjoy your chocolates encased in ass this year!

  1. You do know it’s actually spelled Valentines, with an N. Right?
