10 Valentines That Will Put Him On Notice

1.  SlimFast --- Pointedly cruel, yet undeniably refreshing.


2.  Speed Stick (unscented) –- Just a lil personal hygiene goes a long way.


3.  The want ads--- Jobs don’t find themselves.


4.  Rogaine--- Because baldness has overthrown his Caeser. Clearly.

6.  Chamomile Tea--- Says “you’re not getting any loving tonight, so you might as well get some sleep.”


7.  Marriage license--- Time to buy the cow or go soy, homie….


8.  Toilet Time Targets --- He can manage a corporation but he can’t pee straight? Seriously?


9.  G-String and a Feather Duster--- Maybe it’s time for him to earn his keep.


10.  Cookbook--- Just because you can’t cook doesn’t mean he shouldn’t.
