1. Drunk Girl #1: "I thought you were mad at me when you didn't call last night."
Drunk Girl #2: "No girl, I heart you"

2. "I totally heart that shirt"


  1. While I don't want to take anything away from the comic genius of one Miranda Bearden, I have a sneaking suspicion that the film "I Heart Huckabees" may also have a contributed to the origin of this term and should be credited as such? (Note: Despite it's possible contribution to a modern idiom, the film, in fact, sucked ass.)

  2. To be sure, most "Nerd Word(s)" have a more strict origin in some form of pop culture.
