“Valentine’s Day is when a lot of married men are reminded what a poor shot Cupid really is”

A Valentine’s Day saying has been printed on several GIFs:

The saying was posted to the newsgroup alt.humor on February 15, 1998 and is of unknown authorship.

14 February 2007, Evening Standard (London, UK), “TV Watch: Rich Bride, Poor Bride Five Life ; Wedding-day tears at the thought of what it’s all cost” by Victor Lewis-Smith, pg. 42:
