Finally, someone is showing Ted Cruz a little love, and it’s not who you’d expect.

The billboard, paid for by the nonprofit organization Planting Peace, features Ted Cruz and GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump embracing in a manner that the Republican Party would publicly frown upon (but privately would probably be OK with). Planting Peace’s choice to erect (heh. erect.) the billboard in Cleveland, Ohio, was definitely a strategic one, as it’s only a few miles away from the site of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

While we’re definitely behind the message the billboard stands for — “Love Trumps Hate” and “End Homophobia” — we do see one glaring issue: How could they use Ted Cruz as Trump’s boy-toy?

Ted Cruz has a notorious history of proving that not all Latinos are Latin lovers.

This picture of him attempting to kiss his wife is straight up nightmare fuel.

Not only is he a bad kisser, Cruz is just all-around awkward. Watch as he elbows his wife in the face.

Must be some new kind of foreplay.

Even his own daughter wants nothing to do with him.

Here’s another Ted Cruz kiss and fail.

We all remember that time Cruz was a little too eager to please.

On the flip side, Trump is no stranger to this kind of treatment.

You may remember this mural of Putin playing tonsil hockey with the GOP’s dear leader.

The phenomenon of making boys kiss through art is known in Japan as Yaoi. (Use incognito mode when you look it up.)

Yaoi was heavily featured in the South Park episode “Tweek x Craig.”

And finally, if you’re not into politics, here’s something to cleanse your palette.
