The Love Bugs


We get weird with Valentine’s because Valentine’s is weird. Why do grownups adhere to an arbitrary date in the calendar to show affection?

Y’all need all-year-round romance, so we asked our new Love Bugs to ‘Dilly-cise’ a few classics from that ol’ bard of the bedroom, William Shakespeare. Use the following with caution and please not we are not liable for any adverse (or favourable *nudge nudge wink wink*) outcomes.

“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Well, for starters, you’re all sweaty and oppressive...”

“O she doth teach the torches to burn bright, but so did Dr Frankenstein when he went all rogue with that monster business and the villagers came after him. So, swings and roundabouts, there.”

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet but have you ever noticed that roses really smell like (redacted).”

“Maybe parting is such sweet sorrow because there’s cake at the other end, which would be why it was sweet. Ooh maybe that’s what they meant? Is there cake? Why is there no cake?”
