Are you looking for that special something for that special someone this Valentine’s Day?
Well, the Bronx Zoo is here to help you out!
That’s right, you can honour your significant other (or ex) by naming a cockroach after them for only $10.
As the website says:
“Valentine’s Day is approaching and you don’t want to start the year on the wrong foot. Never fear, we’ve got the perfect gift. Name a Roach is back and it’s the best way to let your loved ones, or not-so-loved ones, know how you feel this holiday.”
If you feel like going that extra mile, and spending a bit more on your loved one, they also have a $35 package that includes not only an official naming certificate, but also a small box of chocolates. They also had one that included a stuffed animal, but it has sadly been sold out.
Celebrities are even getting in on the fun, with Nick Kroll and John Mulaney having roaches named after them (without really even having to ask).
While many are taking it as a bit of a bitter move, it could also be seen as quite romantic! It is like saying that your love will outlive everything…except Twinkies.
