Cockroaches for V-Day?

saint-valentines-day-candy11

We are right around the corner from celebrating the international day of love and we want to make sure that y’all are prepared so that you don’t end up in the doghouse this year.

 

I’m sure you have seen the commercials this year all over TV, but just in case you missed the memo, people are actually naming cockroaches for their Valentine’s Day boo. YES, a cockroach. This is an absolute NO! Even though it would be something different, it is strongly suggested that you play it safe and head on over to Godiva instead.

Not even funny. BUT, if you don’t believe us and want to give it a shot, follow the link and don’t say we didn’t warn you:
