Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy had the perfect Valentine's Day gift for that special someone. You can pay to name a cockroach after someone for just $25

The Cockroach campaign 

Unfortunately, or fortunately for the animals, the campaign ended early this year as they have run out of roaches; the demand was too great. There is always next year for the next heartbreak.

Valentine's Day might have once been about love, but in the age of ghosting, gaslighting and Tinder, maybe it is time the holiday undergoes some renovation. Or maybe not, if you think your partner would really love a little cockroach named after them.

If you have some exes that are roaches, this gift is a way to turn your petty feud into a charitable donation.

So, even if all you got from the relationship is trauma, someone (preferably with fur and a tail), other than your ex, can benefit.
