In episode 15 of the Simpsons’ 4th season, Lisa attempts to bolster Ralph Wiggum’s spirits with a card when she notices that he hasn’t received Valentines from anyone else. Her iconic card, saying, “I Choo-Choo-Choose You!” sends Ralph into relentless pursuit, sealing the episode in comic quotable history.

At the Museum of Science and Industry, we also recognize the power of a geeky Valentine’s Day card. So, our crack team of writers crafted these punny little gems and let me have a go at illustrating them. The cards were distributed to Museum guests and shared via social media.
