Breibart - Big Government ^ | 2-14-2014 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 02/14/2014 12:38:20 PM PST by Sir Napsalot

It’s Valentine’s Day – and that means it’s time to get a gift for your special someone. What is she looking for? Traditional flowers and chocolates are passé; a nice dinner seems hackneyed. Here are some suggestions from those in the cultural/political world for what women really want for Valentine’s Day:

[Warnings: some of these are real horrible doozies.]

(snip)

What do men and women really want? Studies show that women want jewelry (35 percent), flowers (24 percent), or a card (10 percent). Men, predictably, want sex (44 percent). Unless they want a video game (14 percent).

Art supplies.

Or books.

Or software.

Please. These VT teddy bear things make me laugh anyway, much less with a giant bear. Imagine this is your idea every year? Who has room for that? Even the regular bears just take up space, year after year! Then there is their Pajamagram silliness.

Would be real romantic, if the what they wear are reversed!

Well, once in a while, at least.

Power tools work. So do - Guns. Ammo. Knives. Camping gear. Flashlights. Generators. Chainsaws. Car parts. Historic military items. Sunglasses. Flamethrowers. BBQ. Boots. Tattoos. He-man shirts. Boats Fishing gear. Hunting gear. Locomotives. etc.

St. Valentine’s Day is becoming a huge commercial holiday. Seems it’s beginning to rival Halloween.

All the flowers and candy for one day are just hoopla. I’d rather use the money spent on the electric bill. Show me you love me every day by picking your socks off the floor and I’m good.

I made my wife a vanilla cake with peanut butter frosting, and my son and I are getting ready to make some cards.

Planned Parenthood said the ideal Valentine’s Day gift is a Prepaid Abortion gift card! Can you BELIEVE those ghouls?

Next week the bear will be at the local Salvation Army thrift store.

Wish I could find the girl there, cheap.

I did not go to the article, but I assume that the gigantic bear is one of the suggestions.

Men, I beg of you! Do not get the bear for your wife. Where in the samhill would it go in the house?

Everytime I hear one of those teddy bear commercials on the radio, I shake my head... Unless you’re under 25 and in the “you’re my schmoopy” phase of dating, who in their right mind....?

But then I’m such a practical gifter (and getter). My husband will never let me live down the time I returned a gorgeous silk nightgown and got myself.... a crockpot. ROFL

Yes, people don't think the whole gigantic teddy bear thing through, do they?

When you go to the carnival or amusement park you see these ginormous stuffed animal prizes.

Great! You put the ring over the pop bottle neck. Now you've won a huge purple gorilla.

How are you going to carry that thing for the rest of the day? Even then, I'm not sure THEY would want it.

I certainly wouldn't buy a Goodwill stuffed animal.

No telling where its been, or if it has been exposed to fleas or who knows what kind of bodily fluid.

A crockpot? And I thought I was very practical! Funny. I am sure he has reaped he benefits of that crockpot many times. Love crockpots, especially this time of year.

I remind my husband frequently that I have no desire to own any diamonds besides the beautiful engagement ring he gave me. Costume jewelry I have lots of, and I have no desire to wear costly gems. Usually, I buy nicely made stuff from a department store, but I look for sales. It seems that when I lose an earring it turns out to be one of the more expensive one.

Ewww! You had to leave me with that image of the used stuffed animal. Ack!

I have bought one thing from a Goodwill store — actually a sheet to use as a banner to protest Gore in the 2000 election. Over the years, I contributed quite a bit to Goodwill. Now, I will not give them a thing, since I found out that the organization is not so benign.
