Bronx Zoo offers chance to name hissing cockroach for Valentine's Day

NEW YORK - If your beloved really bugs you, if he or she creeps up on you, if it seems like they've been around forever - what better Valentine's gift than giving their name to a Madagascar hissing cockroach?

New York's Bronx Zoo is offering the chance to supply a name for one of its 58,000 hissing cockroaches for just $10 as an unparalleled special Valentine's Day surprise for that someone special (or not so special).

But wait! There's more! For just an additional $15, you can have a hand-painted, dark chocolate roach sent to your sweetie along with the exciting certificate announcing there's now a roach running around using their name.

And for $35, you can name a roach couple and get two chocolate roaches.

As the zoo's website says, "roaches are forever."
