From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/19/16:
My high school English teacher was well known for
being a fair, but hard, grader. One day I received a B minus on a theme
paper. In hopes of bettering my grade and in the spirit of the valentine
season, I sent her an extravagant heart shaped box of chocolates with
the pre-printed inscription, “BE MINE.”
