Valentine's Day and the fraud it is

Hey everybody, it's been a while. I've been kinda busy, but I'm but with a new rant.

We all know that Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. How do we know this? Every commercial we see on TV has a Valentine's Day sale on it.

The day has lost all meaning now. It has gone completely commercial, and now an complete tool to sell your flowers, chocolate, furniture, or funeral home services (hey, accidents happen).

It is nothing but commercial now. The point of the day is to spend time with your loved one. So companies look at that and say "hell, how can we make money off of that."

Valentine's Day is no more important than St. Patty's Day. It's just another excuse for companies to sell you more crap to give to your significant other. That is why this day is a complete fraud and the stupidest holiday around right now.

I'm starting to think that this day was made up by all the card, candy and flower companies just to make a quick buck. This is a load of garbage, make this day worthwhile and not a complete sell out.

But let us disregard the fact that I have never had a girlfriend on Valentines Day (this has NOTHING to do with my love life), that is beside the point.

Anyhow, those are my thoughts once again. Good to see that people responded to the athletic question posed last time. Take'er easy.

Allow me a moment for rebuttal... =D

Stupidest holiday around?

I believe I could invent stupider...

I'm not going to get too deep into corporations vs sentimental/religious holidays... If there were no corporations, I'd have no birthday presents. =D

Think about holidays, though... How many North American males know how to make chocolate?

"Not I," said the king!

Fact: Girls likes chocolate.

Fact: Testosterone-laden mammals are not chocolate makers.

Fact: We are lazy. If someone else can make it for us, we have no desire to learn. We'll just scalp it from them.

This is why, as much as we piss and moan about it, we need corporations - because we can't make chocolate. Even if we could, would it taste better than Ferrero Rocher, Hershey's Kisses, or those little Cadbury eggs?

I'd need a lab full of animals to test any chocolate that I'd make before I fed it to a lady.

Kind of like a King getting a servant to test his food to see if its been poisoned.

Quote: "It's just another excuse for companies to sell you more crap to give to your significant other."

Yes, but, remember, its quality crap; because its the thought that counts. =D

I'll let you marinate on that.

Stay cool.

Funk out!

Ok, Sir Lollipop Man...if that is you're real name. My point her is simple. Valentines Day can be cheap and easy.

Stay home, put on some candles, and have a romantic evening. You don't need to go around growing flowers or making chocolates.

And finally, yes, I won't deny that you could make a stupider holiday.
