There are more, equally adorable cards at the link. I am trying to picture the circumstances under which these Valentine’s Day missives would be used. At the linked OFA page, you can click to share them on Facebook. I assume they are also intended to be sent as E-cards, although I am not sure about that. Can you imagine?

Happy Valentine’s Day, Honey! Sorry I couldn’t afford to buy you flowers, but as you know, I am still living with my parents. Attached is a Valentine’s Day card. Don’t mean to bug you, but ever since your group plan was canceled because of Obamacare you’ve been uninsured, so I hope you will try again to find a plan that you can afford on one of those exchanges. Expensive, high deductible, your ob/gyn is out of network, but look on the bright side–it’s adorable!

Makes Pajama Boy look like a stroke of marketing genius.
