It's Valentine's Day and love is in the air. Or the approximation of love by way of rabid consumerism, at least. It's piped in through the ductwork at home, in the office, public transit -- even in your car. Cupid's people handle it. It's a whole racket.

Or did you... forget?

Listen, we're not judging. Life gets in the way. After all these years together, it just feels forced, doesn't it -- the incessant simulation of affection dictated by a society selling unmeetable expectations? Maybe neither of us are in the mood this year? Is love a bunch of presents? Or is it communication, responsibility and a connection beyond words?

What are we, your shrink? What's with all the questions. Don't be such a downer, it's Valentine's Day.

Pump up some Haddaway on loop and read these comics and go love it up like you just got acupuncture from Cupid and his three assistants.
