Waleed Fills in for Cupid

Image Hosted by

For the love of love itself, let's all celebrate this day of amore and evening of good lovin'. Whether you're single, married or heartbroken, have a cookie with pink frosting and think positive thoughts about falling in love. For those who have experienced that delightful tumble to higher heights, stay in that cushioned state for as long as you can. For those who haven't loved, well, let's just hope that you're under thirty years of age. If not, you might have problems with commitment, gender issues or some serious self-hatred that is rooted in your dark, shady childhood. Either way, chin up and enjoy the rest of your red, white and pink day!

Happy Valentine's Day All!

Sade - Your Love is King
Johnnie Taylor - Who's Makin' Love (To Your Old Lady) one of my favorites
Ella Fitzgerald - Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)

    Watch out .. your blog is going to be segregated and eventually banned. Well .. he would ban it for having 'red' in the title, so, you might as well ride it out.

    Valentines is the anti-shani day.

    I doubt Waleed has the spirit to fill in for Cupid;p

    I personally sent greetings to the ones I want to conjugate with.

    Jokes aside, I sent Saint Valentine emails to the following (I wish we could spam them with it next year):

    نبيل العوضي

    وليد الطبطبائي

    علي العمير

    علي الدقباسي

    جمعان الحربش

    عبدالله عكّاش

    and so many more.. I bid you to do the same. It is not late. Make sure it is in Arabic, and make sure you mention Saint Valentine and write the name in these Latin letters!

    All the love and red roses. :-)

    Perhaps next year we'll piss them off more!

    k: A had a Shani that day!

    don veto: ditto :)

    amethyst: well, you never know what happens behind closed doors :)

    anon: well, im sure if they know the really history behind valentine's day they wouldn't be so anal about it. st.valentine's was simply a good human being and if they're against that, well, that might tell you something about their nature. and i wouldn't send them something of that sort because honestly, i really don't care about them having a nice valentine's day. i just doodled this little cartoon because i got a kick out of it, that's about it...

    organic: sure thing :)

    Don't be surprised, it's getting worse everyday! We are the ones to blame, not the bloody "planet of the apes"!!

    آن الأوان لنهضة "كويتية" صادقة وأصيلة لردع زمن القردة الذين غزوا الكويت الجميلة بثقافتها وفنها ورياضتها وتعليمها واقتصادها وعاداتها وتقاليدها ودينها وشعبها... وريادتها

    The 30 yr old analysis got me smiling ... LOL excellent cupid character, I think you did him a favor by romanticizing him a bit .. maybe that’ll cool him off ;)

    You made him look positively sexy. Look at those legs! That winning smile!

    But then again, mashallah 3laych, only someone of your great skill and drawing talent could manage to do so.

    Hope you had a lovely one :*

    ma3arith: i think they're anti the things you listed down, and education is key; it's the trigger that sets off every civilization and obviously, they want everyone else to be just as unenlightened (if that's even a word) as themselves so that they can claim every bit for their own.

    maryam: well, if he wasn't so ugly, i think he would be more successful. for instance, look at Ted Bundy. He was a smart, handsome serial killer. Women swooned at him during his court trials even if he was a coldblooded killer who did not feel an ounce of guilt. So maybe that's Waleed's curse, that he's an ugly little f*cker who's doomed to failure and an early death caused by an out of control ice cream truck. That's just my 2 fils on the issue.

    Is the gentleman featured in this cartoon an archetype of
    your contemporary Kuwaiti cupid?? Or are we just having a laugh?

    arrested development: we're always just having a laugh
