This US zoo will let you name a cockroach or rodent after your ex

The majority of us have experienced some sort of heartbreak in our lives.

Whether it’s professionally, self-inflicted, or, in this case, romantically, heartbreak has a way of teaching us valuable lessons and providing us with experience for next time.

Some have a positive, mature outlook.

Others, however, opt for the more petty route.

Put your hands in the air if you’re petty and you just don’t care!

For those who may be hurting this Valentine’s Day and are looking for a cathartic — but not directly harmful — outlet to express your feelings, the San Antonio Zoo has just the thing for you.

The zoo is hosting its inaugural “Cry Me a Cockroach” event this February 14 to ease the woes of those who have been burned.

“You will be able to name a cockroach after your ex, and we will serve it up as an enrichment treat to one of our animals for only $5,” the website explains.

“If your ex was a snake, you can even name a pre-frozen rodent after them, and we will feed it to a reptile for $25! The certificate you will receive can be shared on your own social media pages.”

Snakes, rats, and heartbreak? Someone call Taylor Swift, this is a breakup brainstorm for the ages.

The zoo will live-stream the “feeding frenzy” with bird and reptile residents of the zoo partaking in the tasty treats.

“Will your ex be offered to our animals? Tune in this Valentine’s Day to find out!” the website exclaims.

The event closes on Valentine’s Day at 6 pm, and the names featured will only be those that have been submitted through the San Antonio Zoo website.

“All names will be submitted anonymously, and only first names will be displayed during the feeding event,” the website explains.

If this sounds like something that would ease your mind, put your petty plans in play (no shade) and purchase either a cockroach or rat for your ultimate Valentine’s Day revenge plot.
