He’s just not that into unicorns

Two target customers for Lisa Frank’s new line of movie tie-in stickers — coming soon to the Hot Topic/Urban Outfitters near you!

Dear Tyler, I painted you a valentine turtle and you said you would meet me earlier so I could give it to you, but YOU LIED! So, I am taping it to your door. Happy Valentine's day!  I don't think we should see each other any more.  Love, Molly!

(Above, from Colorado. Below, from California.)

Amor,  I'm really disappointed in you. You are not my better half instead my Bitter Half!

    The Fact that she closes with “Love Molly” and a rainbow unicorn makes this PAN even better.

    Dear Tyler,
    I’m sorry if my turtle wasn’t pretty enough. I started with blue and green but it seemed to need red. Lots of red.

    I’m a little weak from all the blood loss, so I think I’ll just tape it to your door and go lie down. We probably won’t see each other anymore.

    Love, Mol

      You’re just prejudiced against the exothermic. Just because they can’t produce their own body heat, it doesn’t mean they can’t feel. Okay, they probably aren’t complex enough to feel emotions, but the vertebrates can at least feel pain!

      I believe that you mean endothermic. Exothermic means that energy [heat] is released to the surroundings. Endothermic means that energy from the surroundings to the system. eg: a turtle sitting in the sun to absorb the light

    • #16.6   aaa

      No, I mean exothermic. There are two definitions of exo/endothermic, the chemical/physical and the biological. Your definition is the chemical/physical, mine is the biological. Endothermic animals produce heat from their metabolic processes, exothermic (or ectothermic) animals must acquire their heat from their environment.

I mean, it’s healthy to make clever quips (or just scream at them) at their expense in a note written on little girl stationary posted in a public place for all to see, right?

    Perhaps it’s just me, but the unicorn’s tail resembles a dollop of rainbow-colored toothpaste. Looks terrible.

      If you are referring to that wierd interview where the kid replied “I like turtles….”, I get it!

      If not, you’ll just think I’m wierd for mentioning it, and I highly suggest you view it! Don’t ask where to find it, however.

      If I am totally taking your post out of context, I’ll just agree with you and say “I like turtles, too!”

    Doesn’t sound like Tyler is losing much. Girl, it’s Valentine’s Day and he doesn’t give a SHIT about your valentine turtle painting. Be more realistic about what he wants.

      In a world filled with Lisa Frank stationary, that turtle is painting.

    oddly enough… I used to know both Tyler and Molly.

    Good to see the girl hasn’t changed a bit. Validates the fact that I ignore her.
