The only thing that Batman enjoys more than a BIF! BAM! POW! to the face is a nice chocolate covered bonbon. A fistful of chocolate bonbons right to the kisser is even better.

Flickr user Andertoons has uncovered a classic set of Batman themed Valentine's Day Cards that Hallmark created back in 1966. It's best to read the various cards in Adam West's voice, making greetings like "I'm out to get you, VALENTINE," "You're just my SPEED, Valentine" and "Valentine, you really pack a WALLOP" all the more hilarious.

If it wasn't apparent before, it's certainly clearer now that Bruce Wayne's thirst for justice is outmatched only by the love in his heart. I always thought that a hero like Batman would go in the other direction - especially since his parents were gunned down in cold blood right in front of him and various other loved ones lost their lives thanks to similar acts of violence - but I suppose that if the Grinch's heart can grow three sizes, the World's Greatest Detective's can make some room for romance as well.
