Valentine’s Day will be here Thursday. Have you got that special someone that perfect card that tells them how much you care?

If your partner is a pure Pittsburgher, with a sense of humor, they’ll probably be impressed if  you get them a Yinzer Card, the series of greeting cards from the trio of comedian Jim Krenn, cartoonist Rob Rogers and KDKA Radio host Larry Richert.

They are available at local Giant Eagle and Market District stores offer three choices for Valentine’s Day.

One card features Pittsburgh rock icon Donnie Iris with the words, “My heartbeat reaches a crescendo when I see ya. . . like when Donnie Iris sings the chorus of Ah Leah.”

"Everyone knows that Jim Krenn is in love with Donnie Iris ... so it's no surprise Donnie would end up on a romantic card like this," said Rogers.

Another card takes the classic conversation candy hearts and puts a Pittsburgh spin on them. ´“Redd Up,” “No Jagoffs,” “Git Aht,” “Nebby 4U,” and “Crazy ‘Baht Yinz,”are some of the phrases.

“And we couldn’t forget about the love affair with the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said Krenn so there is a card that depicts a football shaped as a heart on the front with the words, “Roses are red, violets are blue” and on the inside, “My heart belongs to the Stillers but you’re definitely number two!”

If you already have Valentine’s Day taken care of, they have a St. Patrick’s Day card that features a leprechaun with a pot hole full of gold!

If you can’t make it out to the store they’re also sold online.
