Cockroaches are sexy

What happens when your relationship moves beyond the roses-and-chocolate phase?

You buy your significant other a cockroach.

The new little friend won't actually reside with your sweetie. It will stay at the Bronx Zoo.

Time magazine describes the Valentine's Day gift option here. Apparently, the Bronx Zoo has 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroaches on its premises.

For $10, you can name one of those cockroaches after your sweetheart. Added bonus: The gift supports the Wildlife Conservation Society.

If you're reading this from Columbus, don't worry. Anyone can purchase the gift online, regardless of your location.

I think it's pretty cute.

But of course, this type of gift is well-received only when both parties have a similar outlook on Valentine's Day. Warning: Cockroaches and roses are NOT interchangeable.

What do you think about the gift idea?
