Happy Valentine’s Day

The following greeted me in my inbox this morning via Chad Ballew, one of my favorite people at work, with the subject line “The Reason For the Season.”

“Today we celebrate the day that Saint Valentine went to battle against the Gorgolans 1500 years ago. He was covered in blood and ate over 1,000 men’s
hearts in that battle. The hearts gave him his strength to tear the head from the great beast that the Burokians were sacrificing young girls to every week. He liberated the people and from then on, Valentine’s day as we call it today has been one of symbolic heart eating, to give us strength and remember we no longer have to slit the throats of young virgins on the stone of the great beast anymore.”

I think that pretty much sums it up.
