Dear Valentine,

Please accept this gift as a token of my affection and a sign of our collective comfort with our role as colonialist oppressors, colluders, mindless consumers of a disproportionate amount of the world's resources, and polluters of the environment.

Roses in a vase with a Mr Yuk sign

Hugs and kisses,

Millions of American Consumers
