Happy Valentine's Day - 2019!

Say, isn't it usually PORKY PIG who "busts through things"?  

Ah, that's better! 

But, we'll make an exception for Bugs on this special day!  

Both for BETTER...

Or, for WORSE... 

Happy Valentine's Day, from Joe...and his Special Valentines...

...To all of YOU and the "Special Valentines" who mean the most to you!

Happy Valentine's Day, Joe (and the same to Esther and Averi as well)! Let's hope we don't see any appearance by the, er, "Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids!"

Joe Torcivia said...

Shhh! Don’t give them any ideas, George!

We three all thank you for the good wishes, and wish the same to you and yours!

Debbie Anne said...

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family, Joe. Hope you all had a good day.

Joe Torcivia said...

We did indeed, Deb!

Thank you, and the same to you and yours! ...And Fluffy and Mervin! (Well, they're "yours", too!)

PS: Averi can say "Apple", now! And recognize it! She still can't say "Grandma" or "Grandpa", though!

I managed on the 13th and 14th to watch all six Charlie Brown Valentine specials.

The Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids said...

Though our hearts+ are of metal,
We're made of/soft mettle!
Though we don't at all know/how you two know of us,
We'll endeavor not to/make too much of a fuss.

All our best wishes/to Joe's cute granddaughter,
For it's hatred and evil/we've sworn e'er to slaughter!
See it's not just our skin/that you might name as "copper";
For ever and ever/we're Great Aphroducky's coppers!

Joe Torcivia said...

Well, I guess NOT ALL “Secret Societies” are bad, after all!

Happy Cupid’s Day, Coppers!

You write: “I managed on the 13th and 14th to watch all six Charlie Brown Valentine specials.”

Six? Really? And I’ll bet, even after ALL THOSE, the little red haired girl still doesn’t know he exists!

And shame on me by comparison! I didn’t even read any of those Bugs Bunny comics! (Though the two Gold Keys were read on original release, and periodically thereafter to the present day! And the Dell Looney Tunes was read more recently as a back issue! Hopefully, that counts for something!)

Happy Day-After-Valentine’s Day to you and yours!

The Gang of the Green Gorilla said...

We wouldn't give the Copper-Colored Cupids a free pass if we were you, Citizen Torcivia. They visited our Headquarters the other day, and now we're all desperately lovesick. With the slight issue that we have no one to pine for. Not many people are prepared to enter a romantic relationship with would-be-world-overtaking grass-colored primates. Philistines.

We did try a matchmaking computer software, but it extended considerable computing power before yielding the answer: "NO MATCHES. SUCKS TO BE YOU, I GUESS. BUGGER OFF."

We destroyed the compromising computer in question, of course. But we still don't feel any better.

Joe Torcivia said...

Aww, take heart, GGGs!

We know “it’s not easy being green”, and even more so when you’re a gorilla!

But, I got a little tip for ya… If it’s companionship ya want, try thinking “outside the box” – or, more to the point, “inside the COMIC box”!

In this very post, BUGS BUNNY offers an option for you!

Or, if you’re less inclined toward the fancy dress and bows of Bugs’ “Gorilla Girls”, JIMMY OLSEN would be very happy to have ANY OF YOU trade places with him!

Alternatively, don’t necessarily eschew a bachelor’s life! You can rest whenever you want, and don’t have to clean up after yourselves – as seen HERE! …And, honestly, what gorilla (green or otherwise) wants to clean up after himself!

The Passel of Pastel Ponies said...

We here at the Passel of Pastel Ponies (hey, all the good secret society names are taken already! We’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel here...) would disagree with the Gang of the Green Gorilla’s condemnation of the Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids. We found them to be a quite pleasant and charming group who were most helpful in solving our various members’ relationship problems. They do have a rather peculiar habit of shooting folks with arrows, but no one was seriously injured.
What? No, I don’t have your phone, Debbie...(No, this isn’t Mervin, it’s the Pack of Purple Ponies or whatever I wrote no attention to the gray Mouse with a cell phone!). How do I get this thing to stop typing out everything I say? Argh!

Joe Torcivia said...

HA! I knew it was you, Mervin… you perfidiously pitiful pony posse poseur!

Deb, won’t you EVER take away his pone privileges?

Debbie Anne said...

I keep trying, but as soon as I turn my back, that mischievous mouse finds it. “Pastel Pony Passel” is pretty dumb, even for Mervin...

The Crew of the Copper-Colored Cupids said...

Though we bemoan your loss, phoneless Pastel Pony;
We are proud to announce good news for our company!

Here's our very own animated commerical!

Joe Torcivia said...

EEEEK! How simultaneously delightful AND chilling!

...And HEY! I think I *know* this guy!
