The next time you're standing clueless in the greeting cards section of your local drugstore franchise, you'll be wishing you'd visited the Gallery of Unfortunate Greeting Cards
instead. For all your holiday needs: Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Weddings, 4th of July, Hallowe
'en, Birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas,
and of course, Washington's Birthday. [via Cap'n Wacky] [more inside]

Practice your romantic moves
and be ready for that special day. It may be Valentine's Day but everybody knows true love can only be found on Fat Tuesday. (18 days, people, 18 days!!) Here's some Friday...umm...Flash
fun. (SFW I think -- but maybe I just haven't scored high enough yet.).

Day may be a remant of the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia
, in which "young men who were naked except for the skins of goats that had been sacrificed this day, ran from the Lupercal around the bounds of the Palatine . . . striking the women they met with strips of goat skin, to promote fertility."
This factoid resists my every attempt to add further comment.
