The Twits

Mr and Mrs Twit don't care for this Valentines nonsense. So whether it's romance or unValentine fun you're looking for, here are a few ideas

Mr and Mrs Twit from Roald Dahl's The Twits are pretty horrible - both to each other and to everyone around them. Mrs Twit likes to ruin romantic meals by adding worms to the spaghetti, and Mr Twit is more likely to make his wife think she has the Dreaded Shrinks than buy her a bunch of flowers.

If Valentines Day makes you feel like you want to embrace your inner Twit, we've got a few suggestions for you...

One of the terrible tricks Mr Twit plays on his wife is when he convinces her she's shrinking and needs to be stretched using lots and lots of balloons. Quentin Blake's print celebrates this truly unromantic moment.
