Valentine’s Day is a time of love whether you’re into it or not. There’s actually a complicated history behind the celebration, but we know it as a day of Hallmark cheer, endless appreciation and sweets on sweets. Or, you know, 24 hours of mourning your relationship status (and/or self-pampering because that’s always a stellar idea).
There’s so much hype around the whole production that sometimes things don’t go as planned. Here are some of the funniest Valentine’s Day fails we could find. (And if you’re not in the V Day mood and need a good laugh to get through it all, this will do the trick.)

Papa John’s wasn’t feeling the love, I guess.

A major flower mix-up
This woman’s loved one sent her roses, but she got a surprise when she opened the card (hint: she’s not Karen and he’s not Peter).

In a similar (and equally as hilarious) situation, ProFlowers shipped this man’s fiancée the right bouqet, but they were from her “brother.”

When your date isn’t what you thought it would be
One British man surprised his girlfriend with tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Ireland, the New York Post reported. What they saw instead was a bagpipe band called, “Red Hot Chilli Pipers” (you can imagine how that went).
Still can’t believe we’ve flown over to Belfast not for the @ChiliPeppers but to see the ‘worlds best bagpipe band’ @chillipipers … thought I’d got a rate good deal on tickets n’all. Had a nightmare pic.twitter.com/YO72amVR4I

For anybody interested in what the Red Hot Chilli Pipers sound like (and for the angry “didnt happen” mob ) here’s a video from our seats x pic.twitter.com/gIoymZ3xGW

Or, when last year’s concert tickets were for this year
I’m guessing their 2018 tickets were put to good use today.

When only one of you thinks you got a bizarre gift
She probably wouldn’t include this aggressive t-shirt on a list of Valentine’s Day fails. He, on the other hand…
A Valentine’s Day tattoo that’s just too much
This man just really loves Brenda, OK?

When your cookies look like…butts
These are hearts, duh.
When a Valentine’s Day card gets weird
Well isn’t this, um, heartfelt…

Or, when you let yourself pick out a card drunk
I honestly wouldn’t mind getting this on Valentine’s Day. It’s hilarious.
