“If it’s not Valentine’s Day and you see a man in a flower shop, ask ‘What did you do?‘“

A popular joke about Valentine’s Day is:

“If it is not Valentine’s day and you see a man in a flower shop, you can probably start up a conversation by asking, ‘What did you do?’”

The joke was posted to the newsgroup rec.humor on October 31, 1994.
