The Weekly DownLloyd: Valentine’s edition

Feb 14, 2014, 3:31 AM | Updated: 3:39 am

As the producer of Mac & Gaydos this is my own unique, weird, wacky and, at times, warped look at the weeks seven biggest stories.

This week love is in the air! Can you feel it? No? Me either, it’s alright. I’m here to lighten the mood and increase the giggle factor.

I’ve seen about 40 Valentine’s stories this week, all of them ridiculous. Apparently 80 percent of women prefer to receive Botox to flowers or chocolate. Ladies will be pleased with just a smooch on Valentine’s (yeah, right). What to get women for Valentine’s, what to get men, blah blah blah.

Here’s what you really need for Valentine’s, some hot Phoenix Coyotes Valentines. I can think of a lot worse last minute gifts than those.

If you’re looking to save a buck or two but still have a delicious dinner one Valley Chick-fil-A is offering something very unique.

Even Mexico is getting in on the Valentines spirit. They’re making sure kids won’t be bullied down the road in a unique way.

Wherever you go and whatever you do on Valentine’s, have a great time. And if you forget the holiday and panic trying to make it up to your sweetie this weekend, good luck with that too.

For the rest of the Weekly DownLloyd’s stories click the speaker at the top of this story and enjoy the entire countdown in audio form.
