Most of us probably have an ex or two that we love to hate but since
it’s illegal to kill them we’re mature people, we just go on with our lives. You’ve probably also had the thought that your ex is like a pest that simply won’t go away, similar to a cockroach that is super annoying. Am I right or am I right?
Well, if you have the same feeling then you now have the opportunity to name a cockroach after your ex! The Hemsley Conservation Centre (HCC) in the UK decided to start this initiative in conjunction with Valentine’s Day as a chance to get revenge on your ex and do some good as well.
In their post on Facebook, the zoo said, “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. 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.”
“We are highlighting these creatures through our ‘name a cockroach programme’ (we think adopt is a little too strong, after all – you probably don’t want to adopt your ex) to raise money for our projects at the zoo,” they added. Sounds like a worthy cause and you get to have some of that petty revenge on your
It costs £1.50 (RM8) to name a cockroach and you will get a certificate in return as well. The certificate is meant as a keepsake but do note that the name of your cockroach won’t be on the paper as they “don’t want to fuel a fire”. However, the name of your cockroach can be seen on the roach board at the cockroach enclosure at the HCC.
A check on their website here shows that we can name a cockroach and there is also a shipping option to Malaysia. Do take note to click on ‘add note’ during checkout to add the name of your roach and include only the first name of your
ex cockroach when you’re naming them.
Seems like the perfect Valentine’s gift in non-loving memory of your ex! What do you think of this V-day initiative?
