Happy Valentine's Day Osama

A little Jewish girl, Melissa, comes home from first grade and tells her father that they learned about the history of Valentine's Day. "Since Valentine's Day is for a Christian saint and we're Jewish," she asks,"will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?"

Melissa's father thinks a bit, then says "No, I don't think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a Valentine to?"

"Osama Bin Laden," she says.

"Why Osama Bin Laden," her father asks in shock.

"Well," she says, "I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give Osama a Valentine, he might start to think that maybe we're not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit.

And if other kids saw what I did and sent Valentines to Osama, he'd love everyone a lot. And then he'd start going all over the place to tell everyone how much he loved them and how he didn't hate anyone anymore."

Her father's heart swells and he looks at his daughter with new found pride.

"Melissa, that's the most wonderful thing I've ever heard."

"I know," Melissa says, "and once that gets him out in the open, the Marines could shoot the lousy bastard.


  1. Happy Valentine Day to you,
    I won't shoot ya either...!
    Good luck with the snow!

  2. Sending Valentine hugs to you... and apologies that I've been so absent. Hope you and hubby had a nice romantic evening (or as romantic as you can possibly get at 36+ weeks pregnant).

    Loved the story... got a chuckle out of it, and know a few people who would too.

    Take care.... and I hope the baby comes soon for you. You did a wonderful job of "nesting" before the big event... I got a chuckle out of that too!

  3. BWHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. LMAO I had seen this before but anytime it ends with Osama getting shot I still chuckle. Surfing blogs brought me by your place btw. Have a great weekend!!
