Flowers wilt. Chocolates melt. Roaches are forever.
As a Valentine’s Day special, The Bronx Zoo is selling naming rights for their cockroaches.
Can’t decide on what to get that special someone for Valentine’s Day? Sometimes the answer is all around us, and right where it’s been for millions of yearsâ€”like cockroaches! How better to express your appreciation for that special someone than to name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after them?
Naming a roach in honor of someone near and dear to your heart shows that you’ve noticed how resilient, resourceful, and loyal that person is. Or maybe it’s in recognition of your one and only’s virility, or strength in the face of high radiation. You’re not afraid to say, “Baby, you’re a roach!”
Does this sound like something that the someone special in your life would enjoy? My wife would have nightmares for weeks if I got her this for Valentine’s Day.
