For the first time in a long time, I came across an excellent V-Day gift idea that put a big fat smile on my face. Although I may have missed out on the opportunity this year, I am ordering the heck out of it and sending it to both my love-struck and love-deprived friends next year.
For all you lovers out there who want to give your sweetheart a gift that is eternal, what better thing to symbolize everlasting love than a cockroach? I mean, a Cocoa-roach. Not only is it meaningful and cute, it’s funny and far from cheesy.
The Bronx Zoo in New York has 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches just waiting to be named after a special someone. Name a cockroach after your loved one and send them an e-card to inform them about it. The best part is that it’s just for 10 USD. Much more affordable than a cliché bouquet of roses, isn’t it?
For 25 USD, you can buy your loved one an artisanal dark chocolate roach, of course it’s not a real cockroach; it is shipped free of charge to your sweetheart. Not only have cockroaches been around for billions of years and have proved to endure the harshest of circumstances, but the proceeds of this thoughtful gift go to the Wildlife Conservation Society and its five parks in New York City.
A chocolate roach? This, ladies and gentlemen, is what I call awesome!
Cool Trivia: When a male Madagascar hissing cockroach is in a “sexual mood”, he hisses – the louder, the more passionate. Rawr!
