Nothing Quite Says 'I Love You' as Naming a Cockroach After Them

I'm seriously giving this consideration. But just in case, I got Mrs. JWF some flowers already if this plan doesn't work.
Can't decide on what to get that special someone for Valentine's Day? Sometimes the answer is all around us, and right where it's been for millions of years—like cockroaches! How better to express your appreciation for that special someone than to name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after them?

Naming a roach in honor of someone near and dear to your heart shows that you've noticed how resilient, resourceful, and loyal that person is. Or maybe it's in recognition of your one and only's virility, or strength in the face of high radiation. You're not afraid to say, "Baby, you're a roach!"

But not just any roach. He or she is a Madagascar hissing roach, the biggest and loudest of these stalwart insects.
Call it a love bug.

Not quite Valentine's Day or roaches, but my sister and me chipped in and got the Fenway Dad a rat for Christmas.

A Madagascar hissing cockroach?

Does it "hiss"...."I wove you" in your antennae?
