Anti-Valentine’s Day Gifts


Do you despise Valentine’s Day? Most people who dread the day for lovers attribute their lack of enthusiasm to a broken heart caused by an Ex. Well, now you can participate in V-Day too, thanks to the San Francisco Zoo.

They are offering hissing cockroaches as gifts for your Ex! No, you can’t wrap these little creatures up alive in a heart-shaped box and leave them on your Ex’s porch. However, you can adopt the bugs in your Ex’s name, and they’ll mail your Ex a certification of adoption and a box of plastic roaches. “Nothing says ‘I’ve moved on’ like adopting a giant cuddly cockroach in the name of your favorite ex,” states the Zoo.

If you’re thinking what a terrible thing to do, it’s actually a much kinder gesture than you can imagine. The donations received from these adoptions go toward supporting the insects and furthering the Zoo’s mission to connect people and wildlife. The Zoo even predicts that your generosity will reverse your karma and improve your love life!
