I love to laugh. I’m one of those people who goes into card stores and stands in the aisles, reading the funny cards and chortling. So when I saw some posts on Rejected Candy Heart sayings, I totally cracked up. You know what Candy Hearts are, yes? Those little sugar hearts with sayings such as “Be Mine,” “Hug Me,” “Real Love”? We’ve all seen them, even exchanged them. In fact, I bought a box of them one Valentine’s Day and positioned them all over the house to send Don loving messages. Cute. Sweet. Fun.
And then there are the hearts that you (hopefully) would NEVER give someone you love. You know, with messages like “Meh–You’ll Do,” “Ever Heard of Mints?” or “We Need to Talk.” I like Valentine’s Day as much as the next gal. But some of these rejected sayings had me laughing so hard I snorted. Yes, snorted. Then there were the others…the rude and crude. Someone tell me, please…why do some people think it’s funny to be obscene? It irritated me that such a great idea could be taken down a tasteless, tacky, sophomoric road.
That’s when it hit me. I know a bunch of creative people. (YOU!) People who’ve proven time and again that they like to laugh. And can make others laugh, too, without being crass. So why not have some fun and run a little informal contest here?
Come on, friends. Show off your wit and share your best, funniest rejected heart saying(s). The saying that makes me laugh the hardest will win—you guessed it!—a box of candy hearts! I’ll send it to you myself.
So have at it. Hit me with your best, funniest shot. As Vincini said in The Princess Bride…
