This is the sly form of payback so many of you have been looking for. Sure, you may have fantasized about feeding your awful ex to a pack of ravenous wild animals, but you would never actually do it. Luckily this zoo will do it for you…well kinda.

The El Paso Zoo is giving you the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. It will name a cockroach after your shitty ex and then feed it to a meerkat on webcam! According to CBS News:

You can message the zoo on Facebook with your ex’s name, then wait patiently for February 14 to watch the roach get devoured during the “Quit Bugging Me” meerkat event, which will live-stream on Facebook and the zoo’s website. The names of those exes will also be displayed around the meerkat exhibit and on social media starting February 11. The zoo calls it “the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.”

Being petty has never been so delightful!

Fun fact: a group of meerkats is called a “mob” or a “gang”

Also, shout out to my grandma who lives in El Paso!
