“Name a cockroach after your loved one”
A zoo in America celebrated Valentine’s Day by allowing visitors to name cockroaches.
The Bronx Zoo’s Name A Roach program, now in its 11th year, offers an unusual way to show your eternal love.
For $15, you can name a cockroach after your special someone. The money goes to the Wildlife Conservation Society, a nonprofit organization.
It’s a gift designed to last. After all, “roaches are forever,” the site reminds us. You’ll get a certificate to memorialize the gift.
The website gave the example of Susie, a woman described as a “satisfied roach namer and lover of romance,” and who names a roach after her boyfriend every Valentine’s Day.
“Roses and chocolates come and go, but roaches last an eternity,” Susie says, “just like our love!”
