On Valentine’s Day, Americans have adopted the European tradition of sending cards to those they love — and from whom they hope to receive reciprocal love. But what about the heartbroken? Those who have been scorned by a loved one right before Valentine’s Day? How do you let your ex know that you’re still hurting — or that you hate them — on the most romantic day of the year? Here’s one idea: post dozens of flyers around town with your ex’s name, phone number and address. And encourage people to associate them with ugly parasites. See photo above.
Btw, an isopod is an order of crustaceans that includes woodlice. They live in the sea, in fresh water, or on land. Some isopods are parasites that can kill their hosts. They are known to run rapidly on land and roll themselves into a ball when threatened. You can buy your own Giant Isopod on Ebay and send it to your ex yourself, for a little added dig. But maybe you can get your loved one a parasite even if the romance is still on. At Amazon, they sell these parasites as “pocket pets.”
