Buying someone flowers is kind of a weird idea. Like: Hey, these are for you, now watch them slowly die, because I love you. amirite?

That's a great way to tell someone you want a divorce.
"These flowers will last as long as our marriage."
"These flowers are dead."
"Yeah, we need to talk"

Yeah, but then you have to buy or find some flowers. A more simple approach would be:
"These flowers will last as long as our marriage."
"You aren't holding any flowers."
"Yeah, we need to talk."

@lonely_jew Yeah, but then you have to buy or find some flowers. A more simple approach would be: "These flowers will last as...

Or, if you're really impatient and want an even simpler way to go, you could just come up to them and say, "I want a divorce" and walk away before they can say anything else.

This process would be much simpler if you start this in the beginning of the relationship, but this is the route I would take:
"These flowers will last as long as our marriage."
"But that's okay because you're an alchemist, right? You can keep them alive as long as we use the souls of living flowers to meld stronger souls for these flowers, right?"
"Yeah, we need to talk."

How about instead of flowers, we just switch to something different.
''What I'm holding is as happy and healthy as our relationship.''
''You're holding a bomb.''
''Yeah, we need to--'' BOOM!

I feel like every comment including and following this one deserves a slow clap that progressively turns into an uproarious clap of big proportions. y smilie

They're trying to say, "These flowers are like our love; beautiful at first, but then starts to die and we hold onto it until it's ugly and falling apart and then we throw it away. Happy anniversary!"

If I love someone, I give them chocolate. It says, "Hey! I love you, but if a bear was chasing us, I'd rather you be slower and chunkier"

This is along the same lines as your boyfriend getting you a puppy, or making babies, because they die, too, right?

That's why you get fake ones- "These are fake flowers, they'll last forever, just like our love. Not to mention the were soo much cheaper then real ones, I mean have you seen prices these days?"

In England they are 3 hours ahead. It's September 7th where they live, 12:05 this very second.

I feel like people have said something similar to this more than a few times on here.

...Yes...
They made this POTD while I was on the site, I refreshed the page and the POTD changed. I was just pointing out that it was slightly amusing that it was labeled being made POTD on the 7th, while it is still the 6th where I am.
I am aware that the "Post of the DAY" lasts for 24 hours, hence the "of the day" part (a day is 24 hours).

The worst part of this comment is that it was made today.

I used flowers to tell my wife how long our baby would be in the womb. I said, "When these flowers die, our baby will be born." The flowers died in 3 months. In 3 months, my wife also had a miscarriage. I think something went wrong. :(

Pro-tip: Buy seeds instead. That way, you can turn it into a metaphor for how you're planting your love together, and then have much sexy timez in the future.

If you love someone, give them a wedding ring. It says, "Hey! I love you, but I want some sort of gauge to how fat you're getting."

More like scoff! The idea that there could ever be MANY of me.

Cue Highlander reference.

@Shadi I meant the other one.

YOU ALWAYS SAY THAT, GIVE ME A CHANCE BRO!

@thecatwhocopies YOU ALWAYS SAY THAT, GIVE ME A CHANCE BRO!

Okay, broham. I'll give you a hint. The reference I am thinking of is the one where somebody (I'm not sure who because I didn't watch the movie) says that he has the power, and the other guy's response to that is what I am referring to.

i love demetri lol

Also, OP could have added the flowers are genitals. "Here, watch these plant genitals rot slowly, because I love you." sounds even more romantic, amirite?

Simply saying flowers are genitals does not make it so. Unless you are me, as stated by the Fourth Rule of Truth.

Or even buying them "Hey I bought these plants that grow out of the ground just for you"

Also it's like, here, have some plant reproductive systems honey, that's romantic!

That's why you get your S.O. a potato. They never die and they continue to grow :)

@mNmL0ver14 That's why you get your S.O. a potato. They never die and they continue to grow :)

Until you chop them up, fry them, and eat them.

Kinda like what you should do with your significant other.

Making posts like this is kind of a weird idea. Like: Arbitrarily cross-examining something most people would consider a genuinely nice gesture and then only managing to come up with a perspective that nobody would ever actually consider.
