Candy & Flowers for Valentine’s Day

Candy & Flowers for Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

My heartfelt thanks—but no “Candy” or “Roses”—to my pal Mike Pascale who came up with today’s joke.

Mike also did a masterful job of modifying the original art. I think this is the first time Mike has ever added cleavage to any Last Kiss characters.

Normally, of course, neither of us would ever think of sullying Last Kiss with <gasp!> sex. But it made the joke funnier. So, what could we do?
