“Roses are red. Violets are blue. Vodka costs less than dinner for two”

A anti-romantic vodka version of the “Roses are red...” poem is:

“Roses are red. Violets are blue. Vodka costs less than dinner for two.”

The saying went viral on Twitter on February 14, 2012 (Valentine’s Day), and has been printed on many images.
