For a small donation, an animal rehab center in the US will name a salmon after your ex and let you watch as its two bears tear the fish to shreds.
Valentine's Day may have come and gone but let's be honest, just because the day that celebrates love has passed doesn't mean our past heartbreaks hurt any less. While most of us are put-together enough that we can move on from our exes, that doesn't mean we don't still hold a little resentment deep down inside for them taking away a sometimes significant portion of our lives.
This past Valentine's Day, London Zoo came up with a pretty hilarious idea for people to get some revenge on their exes. Well, sort of. The zoo allowed people to make a donation of £2 (around $2.50) to name one of their cockroaches after their ex-boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, you name it. A funny stunt, and one that likely made a fair few people feel better on February 14.
If the subtlety of a cockroach named after your ex being held in captivity in England's capital isn't enough for you, buzz.ie has reported the next step in animal-naming revenge. Wildlife Images, an animal rehabilitation center in the US, is offering people the chance to see an animal named after their ex literally torn apart.
It isn't quite as crazy and cruel as it sounds. The center is home to two huge brown bears, Kodi and Yak. The massive mammals live off of a diet of salmon, as they would in the wild. It is one of those salmon that could bear the name of your ex. Donate $20 to the center and one of the salmon could soon be named after your ex, but not be long for this world.
Still not enough for you? Well, employees of the center realize that simply knowing there is a salmon out there somewhere with your ex's name being eaten by a couple of bears just isn't enough. That's why, while Kodi and Yak and tucking into their dinner, there will be workers on hand taking photos of the whole event. We imagine this probably sounds pretty appealing to those of you going through break-ups right now, but maybe not if you're vegetarians.
