Thank eww, next.
Hemsley Conservation Centre in Kent, England, has launched a new Valentine’s Day campaign that lets you name a cockroach after your ex.
For only £1.50 (about US$2 or A$2.67), you’ll get a certificate as a keepsake – though the name won’t be printed on it so as not to “fuel fires.” Instead, you can add your ex’s name in the comments section of the certificate.
You can also name a cockroach on behalf of a friend (because naming cockroaches is what best mates do).

Now, we know it's a little over a month away, but we know you like to be organised! 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. So, head on over to https://www.hemsleyconservationcentre.com/valentinescockroach #cockroach #hemsleyconservationcentre #valentinescockroach
Best of all, your donation will not only make you feel good, but it will also do a good deed for the zoo:
