Be My Anti-Valentine

The advertisers have cranked up their engines, the planes are full of flowers from Africa and South America (what is the carbon footprint of this holiday?) , the Ivory Coast Blood Chocolate is being shipped out in anticipation of Valentines day. Think carefully about what you buy and for a really good laugh, look at the anti-valentines created by Meg Pickard and David Pannet, two cynical and grumpy new media types in London. "There’s nothing less romantic and/or sexy than a bunch of wilted, overpriced flowers, slutty lingerie made in a sweatshop, chocolates melted down from left-over advent calendars and reformed into hearts and a card pre-printed with someone else’s generic sentiment which you’re supposed to sign away to your sweetheart." ::Be My AntiValentineanother favourite:
