BOISE, Idaho — Valentine's Day, the day of pressure. At least, that's what the commercials tell people... to perform or receive an act of love. There are quite a few tried and true options; romantic dinners, flowers, candy and even more expensive takes.
For those that want to take a different direction, maybe naming a cockroach after someone at Zoo Boise is the way to go.
"Show your love by naming a Zoo Boise cockroach after that special someone, your best friend, or your favorite family member," the website states. " After purchasing, we will email you the certificate and add the name to our website."
The cost of naming a roach after someone is $20 but the declaration of forever love, or the infamy, may be worth it.
Although Zoo Boise promotes it as a way to positively affirm you and your partners love, there is no rule that mentions a person couldn't name a cockroach for more nefarious reasons.
Here's a list of the 2022 names, now bequeathed to Zoo Boise roaches:
007 Gold Finger
Bugg: the First Lord Baron Of Zoo Boise; A Treatise On Conceptual Snail Armageddon
Crystal C. Roach
Douglas Embla Bojangles
Guro Reiten Jr.
Judas Pathological Liar Leach

Lori the “boss Babe”
Lucas T. Malek

Sir Wirt Ellis
