That's hilarious! :lol:

I guess that all went over me head. :oops: can somebody patiently explain it to me?


Well, the roles the women and men were playing in the video are usually reversed, with the men bringing gifts to the women (and saying "Oh, s**t!" if they forget), proposing to women, finding that they are forced to overspend or having unwittingly overspent, all to make their ladies happy on Valentines Day! :lol:
Plus, it's women who are stereotyped as behaving catty when another lady gets a gift but they don't - which was reversed in the video.

And, lest we forget the true meaning of this great holiday: :shameonyou:

http://www.catholic.org/hf/love/story.php?id=54221

Quote:
...Typically, St. Valentine's Day is celebrated with an orgy of spending, consumption, and lust. It isn't a very Catholic way to celebrate the feast day of a saint.

However, rapid commercialism and secularism in the United States, and in much of the industrialized world, has led to this inevitable result.

In fact, while most Christians continue to fight to keep Christ in Christmas, very few seem to care about keeping the saint in Valentine's Day.

Nobody can begrudge the celebration of romance between two loving people who have made a commitment to one another, especially in marriage. However, as faithful Catholics we should ask ourselves if we truly appreciate the significance of the feast day.

For those that may not know, St. Valentine was martyred in the third century for the crime of marrying Christian couples and his refusal to pay homage to the Roman emperor as a living deity. Before his death, according to legend, St. Valentine cured a young woman of blindness. He wrote at least one letter to this fortunate woman which he signed with, "your Valentine."

Nothing in the legend suggests that the relationship between the pair was romantic, but rather it was rooted deeply in Christian love. In honor of St. Valentine, we too are also called to brotherly and sisterly love. St. Valentine's Day, shouldn't be about consumerism and lust, but rather about remembering and honoring this noble St. and emulating his devotion to others....

It is interesting, too, that Protestants don't usually give a hoot about second century Catholic saints, because they aren't mentioned in the Bible. But, the Protestants do make an exception for Saint Valentine's day, so that they may participate with the Catholics in the orgy of spending, consumption, and lust.

Public-school children in the USA are indoctrinated to exchange Valentine's Day cards with their classmates, but with nary a mention of who Saint Valentine was nor why the holiday is celebrated. :shameonyou:

Absolutely! I recall a youth video about the historic St. Valentine played in my Lutheran church years ago.
