Name-A-Cockroach – Bronx Zoo Launches Unique Valentine’s Day Event
What says, "I love you," in a pretty weird way? The Bronx Zoo has you covered. You want unusual? They've got it, and you have to see it to believe it.
This pretty much freaks me out, and I know I'm not alone. Creepy crawlers gag me. But with Valentines Day around the corner, here's a unique way to show your love.
Evidently I'm in the minority though when it comes to this annual event that takes creativity to another level.
The Bronx Zoo's annual Name-A-Roach event is getting buggy with it for a sixth year, and it's for a great cause. The money goes to the Wildlife Conservation.
For ten dollars you get to name a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach after your sweetheart, and you get a digital certificate as proof. Hell, they don't care who you name it after, so maybe this is your shot at revenge! I mean if this doesn't make a statement, I don't know what does.
Unique it is. And if you are feeling philanthropic you can up the ante by adding chocolates or even a plush stuffed cockroach to the gift for $35, or both for $50. The Bronx Zoo says that you have to place the chocolate and or stuffed cockroach order by Feb. 1 to have it received by Valentines Day.
Call me cupid. BOOM. My work here is done.
