How to say "I love you" "(42) Inappropriately, to a coworker who is already sleeping with another coworker. (43) With a heart filled with lies. (44) With a she puppet and a you puppet. (45) As she leaves for Spain with your much better-looking brother. (46) At Thanksgiving, to her twin sister, by accident."

SPOILER: (100) is probably the most sincere.

10-17 are quite touching in their own way.

That post was beautiful, and the dogs were fantastic (thanks miss lynnster I liked the Husky better than the FPP's).

Until Porter Wagner died, I had no idea Dolly Parton wrote "I will always love you".

I am a huge, huge fan of Paul Ford's writing.

I love you now, dhruva!

Wow. Brilliant and funny, and not a single lolcat joke.

(There may be a causal relationship between these things.)

More like this, please.

Until Porter Wagner died, I had no idea Dolly Parton wrote "I will always love you".

Knowing the story behind it -- how they were finally breaking up due largely to Porter's alcoholism, but he'd given her her break and made her career -- transforms it from MOR dreck to a really poignant thing.

Porter Wagner

The man who put the Opry in Grand Old Opry.

Never have I been more embarrassed than the time I got those final two words in the wrong order.

Now all we need is a list of ways to say "I hate you".

What better way to say "I love you" than with the gift of a Spatula?

#41 is the reason why I'll be sitting at my kitchen table at 3 AM tomorrow, drinking a cup of warm milk and trying to forget the nightmares.

So now a single-link post (with embedded YouTube) is the best of the web? Jessamyn! Do the right thing!

102. Whispered, barely audibly, in bed.

We’d known each other only a week, see, met via an online personal ad, and had just spent an incredible weekend together. I thought I’d heard her say it earlier in the evening, but, nah, I thought maybe it was just what I’d wanted to hear. But this time, this time I was sure I heard her say “I love you,” though she was clearly afraid to say it, afraid that it was way too early to be feeling such a thing, much less to be saying it.

I said it back. 5 years later, we’re still saying it.

Matt, please please please do not let this person anywhere near AskMe.

I remember that pug! From some other TV show. It was terrifying at the time, and I love pugs. I went around for days telling people about the pug that could say "eeeyyaaah roouuugh eeeeuuuhhh."

Everything I know about unconditional love and acceptance I learned from my cat, which is why I'm always leaving dead animals in my girlfriend's bed.

They made me cry.

I could sit down and name 100 ways my husband says he loves me every day. I am a lucky woman.

OH GOD, I saw that pug when it first aired and subsequently told everyone I knew about it - and no-one believed me. It may have been the highlight of my life.

Ah, I was getting all misty eyed until the last video. And now I am weeping because I am laughing so hard. Thank you so much dhruva!

That last video (#100) says "content removed" for me. Anybody got a working link (or at least a description so that I can search for it)? I'm super curious...
