Friday Funnies: Valentine's Day

A Light-Hearted Take

Valentine’s Day is a polarizing holiday that often elicits a wide range of emotional reactions. Romantics, jokers, cynics, and children all look at it from different perspectives. Whether you view it as “Singles Awareness Day,” or the day before candy goes on sale, or if you put your heart and soul into romancing that special someone, one thing is certain: A good Valentine’s card should make you laugh.

On this edition of Friday Funnies, we’ve gathered some memes, cards and other amusing images from around the web for a light-hearted take on Valentine’s Day. And let’s face it: If you’re love sick this time of year, laughter may be the best medicine.


We’ll start with the cynics. Whether you’re single, apathetic, or you just don’t like other people, we’ve got some images to keep you smiling.

Shifting from cynics and jokers to children is probably the best way to show how many different Valentine’s Day perspectives are possible. For many of them, it’s the perfect opportunity to tell their parents, friends and teachers they’re appreciated – or at least attempt to. Here are some cards and letters written by kids to take you back to a more innocent state of mind.
