Would You Name A Cockroach After Your Girlfriend For Valentine's Day?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"New York`s Bronx Zoo said it is offering Valentine`s gift-givers the opportunity to name Madagascar hissing cockroach after their sweeties.


The zoo said people can pay $10 to have their Valentine`s name given to a roach in the Madagascar! Exhibit with an accompanying e-card informing the recipient of the naming gift, the New York Daily News reported Thursday."


If a dude names a Madagascar hissing cockroach after his sweetheart, she will stomp him like a cockroach and he will have to buy her a diamond ring to get back in her good graces.

A dude may think it`s cool to be named after a roach, but the gentler sex won`t think it`s cool or sweet.

Cockroaches may have been around for millions of years, but if you name a roach after your girl, your days are numbered.

Stick to the tried and true, and give her chocolates or roses for Valentine`s Day.
