Every year just before Valentine's Day rolls around, the creative bloggers on Tumblr start endlessly creating and reblogging the most ridiculous and hilarious Valentine's Day cards. They're the internet parody equivalent of the physical cards you can buy in stores that feature all sorts of characters from popular movies, TV shows, music, cartoons, and more.

They all have similar qualities, ranging from rectangular colored backgrounds and comic sans font, to poorly Photoshopped images and terrible puns or pick-up lines. They're fun to look at all year round, but they've been especially popular in January and February for the past several years. This year is no exception.

Take a look at some of the best ones below that have been shared and reblogged thousands of times on Tumblr. Some of the ones you find on Tumblr can be a bit vulgar and offensive, so we'll try to keep it as classy as I can with this particular list.
