​You Can Name A Cockroach After Your Ex This Valentine’s Day

Hemsley Conservation Centre is offering you the chance to really give Valentine's Day a meaningful purpose by naming a cockroach after your ex.

There is honestly no better way to commemorate the day of love.


Although it might sound like a petty thing to do, we can guarantee it will make you feel a million times better.

Whether they cheated on you or things just didn't work out, then the 'bottom of the barrel' insects are bound to remind you of at least one of your exes.

If you're happily in love and have no bitter feelings towards your ex-lovers, you could name them after your friend's ex to brighten their day instead.

The best bit is that it will only cost you £1.50 to name an insect.

And to top it off, your ex will also never know that there's a cockroach named after them (unless they live in Kent and go to visit the roaches as their first name will be proudly displayed on the exhibit).

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 'bottom of the barrel' 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."
