As lawyers, we are a sanguine and cynical bunch, but we don’t really have to be, do we? Sure, we may believe that the most unreasonably dangerous and defective product in our life is our own heart, but we can vanquish those thoughts from our mind today, Valentine’s Day. Accordingly, we here at Abnormal Use wish you a wondrous and resplendent day. Yes, Valentine’s Day may be a greeting card holiday, one seized upon by chocolatiers and flower sellers and would-be purveyors of happiness. But, if we can pretend for a lunar cycle that we remain actual human beings and not just toiling attorneys at law, that may not be such a bad thing after all, eh?
So, without further ado, Happy Valentine’s Day to you and whoever is your special someone.
Oh, and depicted above is the cover of Star Wars: A Valentine Story #1, published by Dark Horse Comics not so long ago in 2003.. You can see that even intergalactic heroes face their own dilemmas on this day. Of course, our question is this: If the events depicted in Star Wars occurred “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away,” how do they even know about Valentine’s Day? Another George Lucas plot hole, we suppose.
And, of course, you should revisit last year’s Valentine’s Day post – featuring not one but two comic book covers – here.
