You can name a cockroach after your ex for Valentine's Day

Revenge is best served in the form of a cockroach

Revenge on an ex is best served ‘cold’, right? Perhaps you might consider giving yourself the gift that keeps on giving this Valentine’s Day in honor of the reminder of losing that creep, once and for all.

The El Paso Zoo is reviving its viral spectacle, “Quit Bugging Me,” KTSM reports. In complete anti-Valentine’s Day fashion, the Zoo allows scorned lovers to name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after their ex, before feeding the insect to a meerkat, primate, bird, or another small mammal over the course of February 14-16.

The bugs are ethically frozen and fed to insectivores, which are a normal part of their diets, but having a cockroach who shares the same first name as your ex, before it is fed to another is unrivalled.

The Bronx Zoo was the pioneer of the roach-eating event but has kicked up its “Name a Roach” program by offering different packages available. Some of these include add-ons, such as roach socks and a roach candle.

They say, “diamonds are forever” but maybe this isn’t the case for some. Perhaps the purpose of cockroaches, like an ex, is to spend their time slinking around, preferring to go unnoticed, and spending their days surrounded by garbage.
