...Cupid, draw back your Porshe

In Roman mythology, Cupid (Latin cupido, meaning "desire") is the god of desire, affection and erotic love. He is the son of goddess Venus and god Mars.
In popular culture, Cupid is frequently shown shooting his bow to inspire romantic love, often as an icon of Valentine's Day. He is now in the current culture the personification of love and courtship in general.
Well, tomorrow is the big day. Valentines Day is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. If you are not intimate, save your money on chocolates, cards and flowers. The day is named after Christian martyr, Saint Valentine. Another Saintly act happened on this day in 1992. Jose Canseco repeatedly rammed his Porsche into wife Esther's BMW. I am guessing that there were no flowers nor chocolates given the following morning.
"Before we make love my husband takes a pain killer."
