Happy Valentine’s Day!

Is there anything more romantic than the fact that St Valentine’s skull is on display in Rome?

OK, maybe that I’m spending a long day and a late night at work, because we’re interviewing a job candidate today. Or is torturing a young professional person with stress perfectly appropriate today?

    Am I a bad person for thinking that skull would make such a great heist?
    “The (official) skull of Saint Valentine has been stolen from the Vatican. Top Catholic Church leaders want to assure the public that there is nothing to fear as they have several spares.”

    Recently listed on EBay: Skull mug, never used: Starting bid $10 USD.

    At least 10 other skulls claiming to be St Val ,and St Val’s day based on a pagan festival .
    Par for the course as regards the catholic church .Wouldn’t it be funny if at least one of them skulls turned out to be Female .

    “Baldrick: Yeah, yeah — fingers are really big at the moment. Mind you, for a really quick sale, you can’t beat a nose. For instance, the Sacred Appendage Compendium Party Pack: you get Jesus’ nose, St. Peter’s nose, St. Francis’ nose, and (picks up a pair of false breasts) er, no — they’re Joan of Arc’s”
