Cool Finds: Say I Love You with a Cockroach

Roses are red, violets are blue and roaches are just gross. But, hey, swath anything in chocolate and wrap it up all pretty for Valentine’s Day and it’s all good.

So why not go for the novelty this year and give your Valentine a roach – a giant hissing roach – of his or her very own courtesy of the Bronx Zoo?

For $10, you can name one of the zoo’s 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches after whoever on your list won’t scream too loud. Up the outlay to $25, and Your Special Someone will also get hand-painted, artisanal chocolate roach delivered directly.

Even better: the money goes to help support the Wildlife Conservation Society in saving wildlife – even the ugly ones.

Not sure what a ‘violate’ is, but a blue one sounds nice…
