True Love - Spelled out

First, farmer Dick Kleis of Zwingle in eastern Iowa, composing a birthday note to his wife, arranged more than 60 tons of manure in a pasture to spell out "Happy Birthday, Love You" in shorthand. Then, for Valentine's Day, farmer Bruce Andersland created a half-mile-wide, arrow-pierced heart from plowed manure at his farm near the town of Albert Lea, Minn. "Now I've got my valentine!" shouted wife Beth, when she first viewed the aerial image. [WTTG-TV (Washington, D.C.), 1-5-10] [Albert Lea Tribune, 2-11-10]

Those guys are just crapping all over their wives.

And to think that I'm living in that area now....good grief...............worse is that I can see one of the locals doing something like that and just laughing it up over it.

Guys have all the fun. The real accomplishment would be HER peeing "I love you" in the snow.

He could pee "I love you" in the snow--even more impressive if it was in her own handwriting....

I've been told before that if you have to say "isn't it the thought that counts?", then you didn't get it right but I think these two got it right despite the crappy writing.
