Instead of giving the cliché gift this Valentine’s Day, like candy or flowers. Give your loved one something that will last. Even if the atomic bombs start dropping.

Nothing quite says love like a Cockroach.

Well that’s at least what the Bronx Zoo in New York wants you to believe.

Next month for Valentine’s Day they are giving people the right to give their sweetheart’s name to on of their Madagascar hissing cockroaches, for the small fee of $10. Wow what a deal.

But wait there’s more. For just $25, paramours can name a cockroach couple.

“There is no better way to say ‘forever’ than with the gift of a cockroach. The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo is offering a light-hearted way to make sure your loved one knows your feelings are forever — with a roach in their name,” the zoo said in a statement.

“Each gift comes with a colorful certificate emailed to your loved one announcing that a cockroach has been named in his or her honor.”

If you want to go the more traditional route the zoo is also offering boxes of chocolate replica cockroaches.
