Is your ex a complete jerk? Name them after a cockroach and watch it get chomped by animals on Valentine's Day

Is your ex a complete jerk? Here’s a hilariously petty way you can settle the score. 

With the San Antonio Zoo’s annual fundraising event dubbed “Cry Me A Cockroach,” you can now name a cockroach after your old flame and, yes, watch it get chomped by a bird, reptile, or mammal on Valentine’s Day for only $5.

They’re also offering other options like a frozen rat that they can feed to a reptile for $20 as well as romaine lettuce, cabbage, and other vegetables that they can feed to vegetarian animals for $5. 

It’s for a good cause, too! According to CNN International, the proceeds “will go towards expanding the zoo’s jaguar habitat with a connected overhead catwalk.” 

Interested? Registration is open until Feb. 13 at 6 p.m. ET via their official website.

The spectacular affair will be streamed live on the Facebook page of the facility, which will also give out a certificate that you and your friends can laugh about on social media.
