Happy Anti-Valentine's Day!

When I was in my first year of med school, a couple of my friends and I decided that we were sick of Valentine's Day and how it made single people feel crappy about themselves. So we decided to celebrate Anti-Valentine's Day. This holiday would express feelings that weren't specifically of love, but weren't of hate either.

We went out to the back of the university hospital and we climbed through a dumpster and selected "presents" for all our friends. We then taped little messages on each of the presents that expressed the sentiments of Anti-Valentine's Day. I can't rememeber, but I'm assuming we were drunk at the time.

Here were a few examples of presents:



Amazingly, we were not expelled.

  4. Grumpy: You save money on presents, but lose money on drycleaning bills.

    IANH: In my first year, I thought anything involving the cardiac output curve was automatically hilarious.
