Name a Cockroach after your Ex for Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, one Texas zoo is offering something for people who aren’t in romantic relationships; people who have been burned by their exes.

The El Paso Zoo is allowing people to name cockroaches after their exes — then, after each cockroach is named, it will be fed to an animal, such as a meerkat, iguana or skunk, zoo officials say.

While the zoo isn’t charging for the naming privilege, it is accepting donations. People who contribute $1,000 or more will get a bonus: instead of being
eaten by an animal, their named cockroach will be consumed by a zoo employee.

Would it bother you to know an ex named a cockroach after you?
