Adopt A Cockroach In Honor Of Your Ex For Valentine’s Day.
An old Chinese Proverb warns, “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, did two graves.”
So for those don’t require revenge, there’s another way to make you feel better about getting back at your ex this Valentine’s Day.
The San Francisco Zoo is offering the chance to “adopt” a hissing cockroach or a giant scorpion in honor of your worthless ex-“someone” on this special holiday of love.
They are highlighting these two bottom of the barrel creatures through an ‘adopt an animal program’ to raise money for the animals at the zoo.
“These invertebrates are aggressive, active, and alarmingly nocturnal. Much like your lowlife ex, they are usually found in and around low elevation valleys with where they dig elaborate burrows or caves,” the zoo says on its promotion page for the desert scorpion.“Also just like ‘you know who’, when a suitable victim wanders by, the scorpion grabs the doomed creature with its pinchers and stings the prey…. Charming.”
The zoo is providing two options for people who are interested. For $50 and up, donors can adopt a scorpion and have the zoo send a certified and stuffed Stinger to the person who inspired the adoption. The cockroach Valentine, is $25.
“With a little luck, this generous donation will release your bad love life karma so you never have to encounter a cockroach again,” says the zoo.
So what do you think? Would you adopt one of these creatures? I personally think the cockroach best sums it up. How about you?
