To ‘celebrate’ Valentine’s Day, a UK zoo will let you name a cockroach after your ex


FAIRSEAT, England — Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and if you’re a scorned lover, a zoo in the UK has a creative option for you.

The Hemsley Conservation Centre in Fairseat, England is offering to “name a cockroach in honor of your, or your friend’s worthless ex-‘someone’ on this special holiday of love,” according to the zoo.

It costs about $2 to name a cockroach and be emailed a digital certificate.

The money will help fund zoo projects.

The Hemsley Convervation Centre will be showcasing photos of cockroaches named after exes. The zoo will post a photo with exes names Feb. 14.
