Holidays with Apostrophes

The next few days will provide ample opportunities for apostrophe catastrophes because of Presidents['] Day and some other holiday on Sunday, which shall not be named. Amy found this V-Day apostrophe catastrophe on the cover of Clipper Magazine.

With or without the apostrophe, Loves Me doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, even if you're Paris Hilton. Is it supposed to be a Valentine for yourself? I think that would be worse than no Valentine at all.

Thanks, Amy!

I think it's supposed to be sort of a "Loves me, loves me not" kind of thing. My friend had an awesome idea. He said, "Maybe it's not possessive - just oddly self-serving. As in 'love IS me.'"

Haha I didn't even think of that! You're right! Oh man, I used to actually play that game with daisies in my parents' yard when I was a kid.

Could be "Rose loves me"?
