Name a Cockroach After Your Ex and Feed It to Meerkat
If you're that person that says "Be better, not bitter" whenever you hear someone speak ill of their ex, move along this blog post is not for you. If you're still reading this chances are you are just as petty as I am. Let us not forget that we can still honor our exes in the best of ways.
Thanks to El Paso Zoo last year a lot of us were all kinds of petty along with several of our internet friends by naming a cockroach after our exes. The zoo took to their Facebook page to say "What's the perfect Valentine's Day gift? ❤️ Naming a cockroach after your ex, of course! Message us your ex's name and we'll name a cockroach after them!" Then we all named a cockroach after our exes and laughed and laughed.
Genius? Heartless? Both perhaps? We are trying so hard to rise above, but this is just something we can't seem to ignore. Will you be sending in your ex's name? What if you saw a cockroach named after you? The good news is that El Paso Zoo is almost ready to reveal when we can submit our exes name. So round up your crew, make sure each one of you submits a name.
