Candy hearts are trite. Flowers are tired. Chocolate is expected (and — pro tip — on sale the day after). Don't even get us started on flowery greeting cards devoted to one's true love that would make Shakespeare gag in his grave.
Think about the most iconic Valentine in pop culture. It's obviously Ralph Wiggum's "I choo- choo- choose you
" on The Simpsons
. If that's the stratospheric level of game you like to bring to your Valentine's Day missives, have we got a series of cards for you.
Allow us to be your cupid conduits this year with these adorable pairings of kittens and boy band lyrics. They're the ideal February 14 cards for anyone in your life with two eyes, a heart, and a love of modern day poetry expressed by teen-idol boys in pop songs.
Go ahead and send one or several. It'll light up the recipient's world like nobody else.
