Guess who we have to blame for Valentine’s Day? Cupid, you say? No! Apparently a third-century Roman saint is the culprit. Saint Valentine or Valentinius, if you want to nitpick, was celebrated with a feast on February 14 way back in 496. Today we still celebrate Valentine’s Day (in a more pagan fashion) with chocolates, roses, diamonds, or whatever we can afford, assuming we remember the date. Yes, this time of year not only dictates that we lavish one another with copious amounts of heartfelt wishes but that we pair up for one day a year, even if it be a fleeting match up. Over the years this ritual, of course, has inspired creatives to produce great poems, novels, and, wait for it, humorous videos that make us laugh away our sorrows. I present to you FIVE chuckle-worthy gems that will lead you down the path to happiness. Enjoy!

Let’s listen to Flula (Pitch Perfect 2) and Mamrie Hart (Camp Takota) deliver a clever tune called Eye Love You.
Hmmm, still having trouble? Perhaps, Adult Wednesday Addams (Melissa Hunter) can help you learn how to attract a mate. Watch as she has a brief tryst with with a “normie”. I do not recommend the One-Night Stand to the faint of heart or those keen on the practice of monogamy.
OK, you’ve done all that and you still get rejected. Um, why not enjoy the pain of others instead! Watch the romantic gestures of the Tree Potatoes.
