Look, whether you’re into it or not, Valentine’s Day is coming up fast. Some people think it’s fun, some people think it’s dumb, either way it’s on Sunday and there’s nothing you can do about that.

You can peruse our past postings of incredible/fun/witty Valentines made by student artists, or you can check out (and print!) these garbage ones I made just for you. Whatever floats your trash.

We at the Thrill have each other’s backs, and we won’t rest until Emma has celebrated V-Day with the dime piece (grumpy, bearded gentleman caller) of her dreams.

  1. When she calls you a “little bitch” it’s only out of love. Sometimes she doesn’t even have to say it, you know she’s just thinking it.  Continue reading
