A Cockroach Valentine

Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

Valentines Day can be rough for former lovers who have gone through an acrimonious breakup. The San Francisco Zoo is making it easy to tell your ex how you really feel this Valentines Day. From their Website:

Nothing says “I’ve moved on” like adopting a giant cuddly cockroach in the name of your favorite ex. This Valentine’s Day, if you care enough to send the very best, you’ll choose our charming Madagascar Hissing Cockroach package. The Madagascar hissing cockroach is believed to be the only insect that can hiss….

with a little luck, this generous donation will release your bad love life karma so that you never have to encounter a cockroach again.

What a charming idea for a fund raiser or maybe a new holiday. February 15th “Cockroach Day” could be the perfect antidote for those who were disappointed by the events of the previous day.
