Name a cockroach after your ex? Watch it being fed to El Paso Zoo animals here.


If you’re looking to finally say “Thank u, next” to a former flame this Valentine’s Day, the El Paso Zoo is here to help.

As part of its “Quit Bugging Me” event, the zoo allowed residents to name cockroaches after their exs before feeding them to its animals Thursday afternoon.

More than 6,000 names were submitted from as far as the United Kingdom. Click HERE to see if your ex made the list.

Meerkats, shrews, anteaters, and other critters all enjoyed chowing down on the roaches, which were already dead at feeding time.

Some were even dipped in sweet applesauce (it is Valentine’s Day, after all).

Watch the animals dine below:

“This has been a global success,” zoo officials said during the event. “We are beyond happy with the results.”

The El Paso Zoo is already planning to host the event again next year.
