On the eve of Valentine’s Day, artist Shang Haichun (商海春) turns his powers of illustration to the more mundane subject of love — and misunderstanding. In this cartoon, appearing on Shang’s QQ blog, a woman approached by a man bearing a single long-stemmed rose blushes and says: “Oh my! What an unexpected surprise!” The man spouts back: “Relax. I just want to know if you’re interested in buying a rose.”
