    If only there were a way to celebrate the holiday while exacting revenge on the one who did you so, so wrong. Well, finally, there is. And it couldn’t be more perfect.

    Hemsley Conservation Centre, a zoo located in Kent, UK, recently came up with the most genius way to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

    For just £1.50 (under 2US dollars), you can pick a name a live cockroach after your ex. Quite a fair price, isn't it?

    "We are offering the chance to name a cockroach in honour of your worthless ex-'someone' on this special holiday of love. We are highlighting these 'bottom of the barrel' creatures through our 'name a cockroach programme' (we think adopt is a little too strong, after all – you probably don't want to adopt your ex) to raise money for our projects at the zoo." The HCG stated. That's right. All the proceeds go towards funding future projects at the conservation center. It's basically the epitome of a "win-win."

    The name of your choosing will also be on display at the exhibit, meaning you can visit your disgusting bug-ex whenever you feel so inclined.

    Not only will you get the satisfaction of getting back at your ex in the most juvenile way possible, but you'll also be sent a gift certificate as a keepsake.
