That damned Valentine's Day

What's Mallard raving about today?

Valentine's Day.

Mrs. Fillmore must feel so special.

Boy Mallard is really putting in the effort to keep moving the bar upward for bad poetry.

"Cheap and easy."

See, Mallard, this is one reason Chantel will never "date" you. (The other reasons are self-evident; it's illegal and you're a revolting little turdsquirt.)

Hey, Tinny: be a manly man and use that "emotionless obligation" bit during your annual Veterans' Day, Memorial Day, and (ZOMG THERE'S A WAR ON) Christmas strips.

And don't forget: in spite of the suggestive body positioning and facial expressions in panel three, romance can only be between a man and a woman.

...Even if all the women in Tinsworld are vicious harpies, shoulderless dimbulbs, or--worst of all--vacuous media liberals.

Valentine's Day as tedious obligation for men: classic theme or tired old trope?

I really thought he was going to go all "Defense of Marriage" after panel three, but he just left it hanging. I wonder if he even knows.

Some people like their SOs to do romantic things for Valentine's Day.

It's not that hard to figure out what category he/she falls into!

BWD - you're right. Piss and moan about a holiday dedicated to romance and wonder why no one likes you.

It must be great - you get some candy or flowers that your SO picked up at the last minute because he 'had' to get you something. Meanwhile, you found something that wasn't just Valentine-y, something that he or she would like, period.

Communication!
