It's almost Valentine's Day—so why not name a roach after your ex?

It's almost Valentine's Day—so why not name a roach after your ex?

You may have called the various people you hate roaches behind their backs—but what if you could actually name a living, breathing, crawling, disgusting cockroach after the one you loathe?

This Valentine's Day, the Bronx Zoo has got you covered. Their "Name a Roach" program, which lets you name one of their giant Madagascar hissing roaches for just $10, is back by popular demand. You'll get a digital certificate, which you can then troll with however you see fit, and for $25 you'll get a certificate plus chocolates from Brooklyn's Nunu Chocolate Company. Your donation goes to help the zoo "protect these misunderstood love bugs, along with a lot of other animals, both big and small." I suppose even a cockroach named Dave needs love. Just not in my house.
