15 of the Best Nerdy Valentines!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. That day every year where people go out and try to buy the most stuff or have the fanciest dinner to prove they love their significant other, or whatever. I’m not super big on what society considers big romantic gestures. I don’t want to be taken out for a super fancy dinner or be given super expensive jewelry for a holiday that has almost nothing to do with its namesake.

…That probably sounded bitter. I’m not against romance. It’s just that my idea of romance is eating chocolate while trying to kill each other in Super Smash Bros. I don’t buy into the “our love is eternal” crap that most cards seem to be oozing at this time of year. I do like puns though. So, I figured I’d compile a list of my top 15 nerdy Valentine’s cards/puns/gestures. This list sticks to only one entry per fandom and is in no particular order. The process of making this list was carried out with the very objective method of me Google searching and choosing the ones I liked best. Geeks and nerds alike are sure to see at least one nerdy V-day pun that they’ll like.

1. Doctor Who

I’ll be the custard. Who’s gonna be my fish fingers?

2. Pokémon

Pokémon is another fandom with a ton of romantic puns linked to it. This entry is a classic, and gets bonus points for the cupcake! If only I could eat it all…

3. Star Wars

GeekLovePoem-54498

I found less geeky puns for this fandom than I thought I would. Still, points for the poem and reference to R4!

4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Spike-Valentines

Buffy has too many awesome Valentine’s puns! I hope someone loves me that much one day (though hopefully that person will love my legs and feet too…).

5. Star Trek

6. Skyrim

Arrow to the knee jokes get old. Arrow to the heart puns make me melt.

7. Harry Potter

If someone tried to pick me up with this line, I would laugh and then cast Expecto Patronum, just to prove I’m more awesome than any Dementor can hope to be.

8. Classic

Edgar-Allan-Poe-Valentine

There’s a whole line of these classic character nerdy puns. I chose my main man, Edgar Allen Poe, to represent their awesomeness. Now EAP and I are gonna go down to our kingdom by the sea, if you know what I mean.

9. Arcade

There are a lot of LotR cards out there, but this is the one card to rule them all.

12. Batman

Whether you’re spending V-day with Mr. J or Poison Ivy, this entry is sure to impress. Or you can plan an evening destroying Batman. Whichever you prefer.

13. Disney/Frozen

The amount of Disney Valentine’s cards is staggering. Olaf has certainly managed to unfreeze this heart.

14. Geek & Sundry

LARPs is new and already we get a card with a geeky pun! I don’t need to do a check to know I love this.

15. Game of Thrones

  1. I’m giving my guy one nerdy/adorkable valentine every day for the entire month. I stick them into his backpack, under his pillow, into his medicine cabinet. I stalk him with silliness. 😀
