Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so I thought I’d provide a little public service and point you towards a lovely Valentine’s Day gift opportunity. No need to say thanks … I’m a giver like that.

“My Cup Run It Over” I Love You – $3

Need a quick Valentine’s gift? I am making goodies for Valentine’s Day. Take a peek and let me know if you’re interested in ordering anything. Great gifts for kids, teachers or that special someone.

Valentine cup filled with Hershey Kisses and special note. “Colors Pink & Red”

Please call Dale at xxx/xxx-xxxx.


Yes, the tags actually say, “My Cup Run It Over”. With the quotation marks. It’s just too painful.

I’m hoping my comments will runneth over with snark. Take it away, folks!

Submitted by DM — thanks!

    I want one. Really. To take to my “friends.”

    OK, if I’m thinking about Valentine’s Day a month in advance, I don’t need a “quick” gift – and if I really, really, really want to give my beloved a cup filled with kisses, I can put it together myself. That is, of course, if I would actually like to be single instead. Good grief.
    Sad thing is that you know s/he’s just soooooooo proud of him/herself for thinking up this great way to make money. *shaking head*

    Why would you run over anyone else’s cup when you could run over MINE? Pick me, dang it! Pick me! I LOVE you!

    I think she meant “quick” as in “a gift you don’t have to really think about for a person you don’t really care about.”

    What scared me about this listing is that someone is going to actually buy these from her, thinking they are sweet, and give them to someone who also has no idea.

    I also wondered what, exactly, these cups run over…

    At least it doesn’t say “My love run it over”…though that might be a great gift to send to an ex, lol.

    I remember last year when I told my bf “Happy VD!” ..and then he broke up with me. Needless to say, I still think its hilarious.

    @Jane Lane:

    This might be a sore subject, but it sounds like you got a dishonorable discharge.

    I’m with Courtney on this – I can’t see why I would take the time to call “Dale” go and pick it up when, in the same amount of time, I could make one myself with products from a dollar store and the local 7-11.

    What a lame, lame gift. Sounds like something you get at one of the Christmas gift exchange/swap things and leave very disappointed.

    Also perhaps title was meant to be: “My love. Run it Over”…?

    I like how “Colors Pink & Red” is in quotation marks in the listing. Is that slang for something?

    I love how Dale’s going to write a “special note” and put it in my cup for me. I wonder if the note is what says “Colors Pink & Red”?

    I think the quote, “my cup run it over” represents what will happen if you give this gift to a loved one.

    amy d: agreed; it’s just missing a semicolon!

    “My cup; run it over.”

    Glad to see I can still get a quick V-day present! I actually bought a beautiful glass figurine well ahead of time, but I left it on the kitchen table and my cup run it over.

    This person should be saying “My brain – run it over! I’m too stupid to properly use the English language!”
