Here are some Valentine gifts for the little one in your life.  It would apply to many msm goofballs–like George Stephanopoulos or Chuck Todd.  They could be jockeys except for their lack of morals, ethics, and scruples.

Chicago has changed for the worse.  Democrats and Black Citizens have run the joint for 70 years.  Obama is/was a citizen.  BLM is a scam.

Valentine Jokes

 

A prince was put under a spell so that he could speak only one word each year. If he didn’t speak for two years, the following year he could speak two words and so on.

One day, he fell in love with a beautiful lady. He refrained from speaking for two whole years so he could call her “my darling.” But then he wanted to tell her he loved her, so he waited three more years. At the end of these five years, he wanted to ask her to marry him, so he waited another four years. Finally, as the ninth year of silence ended, he led the lady to the most romantic place in the kingdom and said, “My darling, I love you! Will you marry me?”

And the lady said, “Pardon?”

****

“If you step on a purple mushroom, you’ll be forced to marry the ugliest person in the world,” warned the old gnome, so the man continued carefully through the woods. He didn’t step on any purple mushrooms.

Suddenly a beautiful woman walked up and said: “We have to marry.”

“Why?” asked the man, smiling.

“I just stepped on one of those pesky purple mushrooms!” she replied.

****

A woman was taking a nap on Valentine’s Day afternoon. After she awoke, she told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a gorgeous and expensive diamond necklace for Valentine’s Day! What do you think it means?”

“You’ll know tonight,” he said.

That evening, her husband came home with a small package for her. Thrilled, she opened it and found a book titled “The Meaning of Dreams.”

****

A Cub Scout found a frog that said, “Kiss me and I will become a beautiful princess.”

The boy studied the frog, then put it in his pocket.

“Hey,” the frog croaked, “how come you didn’t kiss me?”

“I’d rather have a talking frog than a princess any day!”

****

I just got a text from my girlfriend that said, “I bought you an awesome Valentine’s Day gift! xox”

I really hope she spelled “Xbox” wrong.

The first Valentine cards

The first Valentine cards were sent in the 18th century. Initially these were handmade efforts, as pre-made cards were not yet available. Lovers would decorate paper with romantic symbols including flowers and love knots, often including puzzles and lines of poetry. Those who were less inspired could buy volumes that offered guidance on selecting the appropriate words and images to woo their lover. These cards were then slipped secretly under a door, or tied to a door-knocker.

It was in Georgian Britain that pre-printed cards first began to appear, though these were not yet as popular as they were eventually to become. Perhaps the oldest surviving example dates from 1797: this card, held at York Castle Museum, was sent by one Catherine Mossday to a Mr. Brown of London. It is decorated with flowers and images of Cupid, with a verse printed around the border reading:

Since on this ever Happy day,

All Nature’s full of Love and Play,

Yet harmless still if my design,

‘Tis but to be your Valentine.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Long Stem Rosette Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Adam Block & Tim Puckett

Explanation: Would the Rosette Nebula by any other name look as sweet? The bland New General Catalog designation of NGC 2237 doesn’t appear to diminish the appearance of this flowery emission nebula, at the top of the image, atop a long stem of glowing hydrogen gas. Inside the nebula lies an open cluster of bright young stars designated NGC 2244. These stars formed about four million years ago from the nebular material and their stellar winds are clearing a hole in the nebula’s center, insulated by a layer of dust and hot gas. Ultraviolet light from the hot cluster stars causes the surrounding nebula to glow. The Rosette Nebula spans about 100 light-years across, lies about 5000 light-years away, and can be seen with a small telescope towards the constellation of the Unicorn (Monoceros).

TALKING WITH: Al sharpton

 

WRITTEN BY: THE GHOST TARSIER
(Dr. Hook’s Voodoo lady from louisiana)

Marie Laveau, The Fortune-Telling Witch

 

ML: Hello Al.

AS: How did you know my name?

ML: I am a fortune telling witch, you fool? Did you not read the sign when you entered my shadowy waiting room? Did you not notice my huge array of Black Velvet paintings as they glowed under my black lights?  Oh, never mind. Did you pay my clerk for your visit?

AS: Oh yes, of coarse…I wrote her a check.

ML: OH NO! HELL NO! Why would I accept a check from a self-appointed reverend who has not paid his taxes in twenty years?

AS: Should I go and give her my credit card?

ML: No, you shall go and get some cash from that stolen card! You seem to forget that I know all things, past…present and future.

AS: I am back, Marie Laveau. Did Doctor Hook really write a song about you?

ML: That is my personal business. Now move along…what is your question for me?

AS: You may have heard that I am contemplating a divorce?

ML: She has been estranged for 15 years, man. Did you think Cupid would shoot an arrow of love into her heart? It would have rusted by now. You have been very negligent in coming to a fortune teller to predict your future. Why now?

AS: Well, I am a little concerned that the ‘People of Color’ will soon outnumber the Black people and I do not know how I will get my free money in the future.

ML: Well, you actually have no future, Al. You are history. By the way, I see that you are on Facebook and Twitter?

AS: Yes, of coarse.

ML: No need to cancel those accounts. They will cancel you in the very near future. They are only waiting on obama to tell PINO Biden to tear down the wall. PINO Biden hates black people.

AS: How can that be? obama let me stay in the Lincoln bedroom for his entire presidency…I don’t understand.

ML: But PINO Biden did not give you those privileges. Have you forgotten that PINO Biden’s Idol was the KKK Grand Wizard, Robert Byrd? Dr. Jill washed and ironed many white sheets and hoods for Grand Wizard Byrd. Just between us, I think she had a crush on him. When he came to pick up his freshly washed sheets and hoods, as he left, she always hugged him…then winked and said “Bye, Bye Byrdie.”

AS: What should I do now, Marie Laveau?

ML: There is nothing you can do Big Al. You have robbed your trusted following for too many years, you are a thief and a self-appointed reverend….you are simply….

ANOTHER MAN DONE GONE.
