Donate To This Zoo And They’ll Name A Cockroach After Your Ex

Just in time for Valentine's Day.

Name a cockroach after your ex this Valentine's Day

A zoo in England has come up with a unique new fundraising idea just in time for Valentine’s Day: chuck them a few bucks and they’ll let you name a cockroach after your ex. And what do you know, I think I suddenly care very deeply about animal conservation.

The Hemsley Conservation Centre has been promoting the deal for a few weeks now. For a £1.50 (about $2.70) donation, you’ll get the right to name a roach after whichever significant other fucked you over in the past. You can also name a bug after your mate’s ex, because that’s what friends are for.

“For those that don’t quite require revenge, there’s another way to make you feel better about getting back at your ex this Valentine’s Day,” reads a post on the centre’s Facebook page. “The HCC is offering the chance to name a cockroach in honor of your, or your friend’s worthless ex-“someone” on this special holiday of love.”

The name of each cockroach will be immortalised on the centre’s roach board in the cockroach enclosure.

Donate to the Hemsley Conservation Centre here. It’s the charitable thing to do.
