How better to express your appreciation for that special someone than to name one of the Bronx Zoo's 58,000 Madagascar hissing cockroach after them?

I don't mind spiders. Snakes I think are way cool. Even scorpions don't really gross me out. But no no NO to this one!

I don't know.

"How better ... "

Let me count the ways ...

(BTW ... 58,000? Who counted 'em?)

Maybe a vacuum cleaner or a diet book or a coupon for rhinoplasty?

Hello, Bronx Zoo? Can I be the first to name one of your cockroaches "Newt?"

Hmmm.. How can I be sure that noone else infringes on the naming rights to My Little Cockroach?

I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I want to be loved by you"

*Wonders if Mr. Bloomberg knows there are 58,000 of these hideous abominations delicate creatures sitting a few miles from his mansion*

They're all under his refrigerator.

Those are just the scouts.

At first I thought the spam guy was selling these...

Boy, am I glad I misread that!

Although Chocolate covered grasshoppers are great!

Major snorkage @ Omniskeptic! I'll be happy to name that cockroach in the corner Jan Brewer, if it's not already been taken.

If I name one, how do I know they won't feed it to a lizard?

OK, I'll dive in first. A gentleman who has a sewage lift station named after him deserves all kinds of honors.
So, there is now a roach named "Dave Barry". Kind of fits with the lift station, doesn't it?

Must be cuddly critter day on the blog....hissing cockroaches, weaving spiders, biting pythons....what's next, killer termites?

Hissing cockroach is what I called my former mother-in-law.

I'd like to name one after an old girlfriend. But I'm pretty sure they already named one after her.

My thoughts exactly, wingnut -- the perfect gift for the ex-wife who has everything!

If I buy a "duo" of the chocolate ones, will they reproduce, thereby bosting the local economy?

No, dear -- it's a typo. It was supposed to be a gorgeous butterfly with your name.

Hissing cockroaches is a good description of all the candidates (including the incumbant) for the President of the U.S.

I think I'd rather trust Hershey's or Ghiradelli's instead of those chocolate "monstronsities", however.

Thanks for sharing amazing information over here..
