Flowers are a nice gift for Valentine's Day, unless of course you stole them from a grave.

Apparently this is a yearly issue at Greenwood Cemetery in Orlando, so Sexton Don Price took to Twitter yesterday to remind you freaks not to steal bouquets from the dead.



"Although they're beautiful, they come with some bad karma mojo," said Price. 
However, Price did say any flowers you can scrounge from the cemetery's dumpster are free for the taking, which is probably an awesome gift idea for any goth couples out there.

Goth: Where did you get these flowers, they're beautiful.
You: The bottom of a cemetery dumpster. 
Goth: I love us.
