Valentine's Day stalker card photo

Sorry to be the wet blanket, everyone. But Valentine’s Day cards that joke about stalkers? Not really funny. There’s a bunch of stalker cards like this one for sale on Zazzle.com, including a particularly disturbing one that says “Be Mine” spelled out in blood above a heart made out of a razor blade. I have a pretty irreverent sense of humor, but I don’t see any humor in joking about violence. Stalking is creepy and scary to people who actually live through it. There’s better ways to be funny if you want to fly your freak flag this Valentine’s Day. [Zazzle.com

But in simpler times, creepy Valentine’s Day cards like the one above weren’t considered rape-y — they were sweet. Can you imagine that? Although I guess I shouldn’t be bitching because I’m not getting any Valentines this year. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

Crave: TweeCards

Life is full of moments when you just don’t know what to say. Like when a friend loses her job (or gets one), ages another year, or saves your ass at a work meeting.
