Because Nothing Says Love Like Raw Sewage

This Valentine's Day, every kiss will not necessarily begin with Kay. In perhaps the strangest marketing idea ever, the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in New York is offering a special Valentine's Day tour. A Hershey's Kiss will be distributed to every guest!

The plant superintendent will walk guests through the sewage plant’s egg-shaped digesters, which act like a human stomach and break down the noxious waste into harmless sludge and gas. This wildly enthusiastic superintendent promises a date she'll never forget (this is most likely true).

Haven't picked up anything for your beloved yet? Get yourself to Newtown Creek!

Sally - don't forget the age-old adage: the way to a man's heart is through his digester.

What's hubby getting you Sally?

Sally said...

New York's too tough to get to during the week, so probably a tour of the local sewage plant.

St. Valentine's day is a "negative rights" holiday for men. If you do everything perfectly you're still at even. But bring home a Whitman's Sampler instead of Godiva, or get the 10 buck a bunch Wally World flowers, and you'll be sleeping with the fishes.

Hammer - so why should Valentine's Day be any different from the rest?
