Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and many of you may be surprised by what a sap I am about hearts and flowers and the whole lovey-dovey thing (you may puke).


Before any happy-sappy heartsy-fartsy Valentine posts, I feel I must do one for the more . . . shall we say. . . cynical among us. Allow me please to introduce the Cupid-be-Gone (above).

According to the copy writers at Uncommon Goods, the Cupid-be-Gone will "chase cheesy romance whenever it rears its rose-colored head." The diabolical creature is designed and hand-welded by Fred Conlon (also known for his garden villian, the Gnome-be-Gone, below).

Perhaps these creatures could spawn offspring that would carry away an especially reprehensible ex-lover. Probably not, but doesn't the thought make a lovely picture?
