"Cupid 1," an intercontinental ballistic love missile looks ready for launch in the front yard of a Florida home but the weapon of mass affection won’t be going anywhere even if someone presses the big red button beside the duct-pipe rocket.

Eddie and Nancy Gines erected the 14-foot mock missile in front of their home in Tallahassee and decorated it with red Valentine's Day hearts and Cupid decals, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

The launch pad features an information box containing a "love manifesto" and "love action ideas," such as smiling often, befriending neighbors, and being there for someone.

Eddie Gines, 57, told the Democrat his rocket’s "big red button" is a poke at President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, aka “rocket man,” who have regularly traded nuke missile barbs, per The Guardian and CNN.

"Really, we have a powerful weapon already that would wipe out the weapons of mass destruction. And that's love," Eddie Gines said. "We each have the capacity to be love and share love, and an endless supply within our hearts and souls to share that."

Gines told the Democrat he hopes the gesture would lead to others spreading compassion.

"Lately, with everything going on politically and the fracturing in the community ... the one thing that would really help all of that and maybe get us back on track is to focus in on love energy," he said.

Nancy Gines said people should "appreciate each other" more.

"We're so focused on the negative things … that we forget to just reach out to each other," said Nancy Gines, per the Democrat. "Put down your phones, put down your apparatus, wave when someone passes down the street. Just calm down and start appreciating each other, because we only have each other."
