Heart-Eating Valentine Cards

This Nerdy Valentine’s Day Card is from ‘SweetGeek’

— February 14, 2014 — Lifestyle
Show your geeky girlfriend or boyfriend that you really love them the only way you know how: through a nerdy Valentine’s Day card.

Maybe for some people, an image of a pregnant 13-year-old eating a horse’s heart isn’t for most people. Maybe, a story about a horrible and bloody civil war that involves gory violence and smutty scenes isn’t the ideal thing to get most people in the mood, but maybe you and your sweetie aren’t average people.

For all you Game of Thrones fanatics, there is now a nerdy Valentine’s Day card that will perfectly express your devotion to your significant other. Made by Etsy creator ‘SweetGeek,’ this cute and gory card has the image of Daenerys Targaryen in one of her most famous scenes from the show.
