Sweet, funny Valentine

For those of you who like to celebrate Valentine’s Day as an alternative or even an addition to Sant Jordi, a couple of resources.

First, the sweet. Fancy Cakes BCN make cakes, cookies and other pastries for special occasions such as this and also to order. You can check out many of their designs at their website, including a very beautiful (but gloomy) wedding cake based on Tim Burton’s  Corpse Bride!

Secondly, the funny. Admittedly, there aren’t many funny and romantic jokes around, most of the funny ones have to do with an anti-Valentine feeling. Such as this one from Reader’s Digest:

A Little Nuts About Love

Driving through Southern California, I stopped at a roadside stand that sold fruit, vegetables and crafts. As I went to pay, I noticed the young woman behind the counter was painting a sign. “Why the new sign?” I asked. “My boyfriend didn’t approve of the old one,” she said. When I glanced at what hung above the counter, I understood. It declared: “Local Honey Dates Nuts” – Contributed by Theodore Bologna

and how about this true story from the pages of a Valentine’s Cynic:

A Russian man divorced his wife of 18 years after finding she had been feeding him cheap pumpkins instead of courgettes. Ivan Dimitrov, 47, was devastated to find the pies he had been eating for six months were made of pumpkins and not courgettes. Mr Dimitrov, from Voronezh, said when he realised the truth, after finding pumpkin rinds in the bin, he immediately hired a lawyer to organise a quick divorce from wife Irena, 38. He said, “She knows I absolutely hate pumpkins and she lied to me for months about it just because the pumpkins were cheap. What else has she been lying about? What man could trust a woman who fed him pumpkins for half a year?

If you do celebrate Valentine’s Day, have a great time!
