On Corn and Con.

One of this year’s shameless attempts by Sainsbury’s to capitalise on St Valentine’s Day is a white ceramic heart hung on a red ribbon. On the heart is impressed the message:

I love you more today than yesterday but not as much as I will love you tomorrow.

Conspicuous by their absence are the reinforced bags, one (or maybe two) of which should accompany each purchase just in case the recipient doesn’t get the joke and thinks you’re being serious. Maybe they’re assuming the clumsy English provides enough of a hint.
