Cupid

The whole idea of "Cupid" is just absurd... a baby who shoots arrows at people so they'll fall in love? First of all, a baby would never shoot an arrow. If babies had arrows they would eat them the way they eat everything else. Secondly, babies don't fly, because that's creepy. Cupid is weird.

The more I considered what I thought I knew about Cupid, the more I doubted that my perceptions could be true. I decided to learn more about it, so I looked up "Cupid" in the dictionary, and I kid you not... the actual definition is just one word: "stupid." If you don't believe me, look it up yourself... but not in Webster's Dictionary. He gets a little wordy for my liking. I prefer Rhyming's Dictionary. He keeps his definitions brief.

Happy Valentine's Day to my beautiful wife!

That's got to be one of the cutest Cupid pictures. Your drawing makes him look less creepy.

Cupid is always creepy because people always illustrate him as a baby that looks like an old man. So it looks like an old man wearing nothing but a diaper. That's nasty. Even your drawing, which is significantly better than most, sort of looks like a 30-year-old bald fatty.

I think Cupid could be less of a creep if he were actually baby-like. Perhaps if you could do a more baby-like illustration? I would, but stick figures don't resemble infants either.
