Happy Valentine’s Day from What Does the Protagonist Want?

Sam’s valentine for his class this year.  In case it’s not clear, that’s Indiana Jones, clutching a stolen heart, being chased by a giant rolling m&m.  (Small bags of m&m’s were taped to the back of each valentine.

As an added attraction, beneath the fold I’ve compiled a collection of my favorite valentine designs from around the internet.  If you "get" every single one of these jokes, congratulations!  You’re a geek.

Feel free to post your own finds.

    The only one I don’t get is the bear one. Am I an idiot or just unaware of some obscure reference being made?

      I don’t think there’s anything to “get” there, I think it’s just funny.

      Except of course for the very serious bear problem that the United States has, as outlined numerous times by Stephen Colbert.

    Heh. My daughter (8 yrs old) also made her valentines for her class (only one other kid did so). She got a hot glue gun for Christmas and really went to town, turning heart shaped lollypops into cupids. Probably the rightest thing wife and I have done in life is to make it as easy as possible for our kid to be creative.
