Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day. Be grateful you don't live in Saudi Arabia:

Saudi law forces Valentines underground: Each year shortly before Feb. 14, the country's religious police mobilize, heading out to hunt for and confiscate – red roses, red teddy bears and any signs of a heart.

In a country where Valentine's Day is banned, ordinary Saudis find they must skirt the law to spoil their sweethearts.

The Valentine's Day holiday celebrating love and lovers is banned in Saudi Arabia, where religious authorities call it a Christian celebration that true Muslims should shun.

Our great allies in the fight for 'liberty'.

    Some of us single folks approve of the suppression of Valentine’s day! I kinda like the idea of heavily armed thugs running around trashing e.g. florists and chocolate stores.
