image for Worsening Economy Puts An Arrow Through Cupid's Plans
Cupid's little brother, Earl

St. Valentines Day is just around the corner, and the worsening economy dealt a blow to the official day of chocolate today. Heavenly Creations, the company which supplies Arrows of Love to Cupid, has announced that the rising cost of Love Potion #9 from witchdoctors the world over means that this year "will be a little different."

Instead of Arrows of Love, Cupid will sporting an assortment of instant emotions, ranging from total indifference to euphoric bliss. Mark Yurspot, the head scapegoat for Heavenly Creations, explained it this way:

"We just can't afford for all those people to fall in love in the coming months, so Cupid has agreed to distribute a little bit of love, some happiness, even a psychotic episode or two. In all, we think this is going to greatly enhance the Valentine Holiday, especially for those who have long held the strange belief that it was a silly day meant only for romance."
