The Manc - You can name a cockroach after your ex for Valentine’s Day"

You can name a cockroach after your ex for Valentine’s Day


Got a dodgy ex? Hate their guts? Cool, do something that will make you feel better than by naming a cockroach after him or her.

Because just in time for Valentine's Day (February 14th if you've forgotten again) you can officially do just that – and it will only cost you £1.50.

Hemsley Conservation Centre is giving bitter lovers the opportunity to give a fitting name – and you can even pick the roach itself.


The name will then be displayed on the exhibit for all to see and even visit, as many times as you want – and you'll even get a certificate as a keepsake.

The centre says they will not be printing the names on the certificates themselves, however you will be able to add the name in yourself retrospectively.

So if you are a scorned lover or just generally bitter about your past flame, this is the perfect way to release some pent up emotion – and it's all for a good cause.


A statement from the centre 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.

"We are offering the chance to name a cockroach in honour of your 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."

Happy Valentine's, everyone.
