La Cucaracha is Forever

Me quito el sombrero–hats off–to the Bronx Zoo, for the clever and hysterical Valentine’s Day gift of naming a Madagascar hissing roach after your amor. And in this age of recession, it will only set him or her back $10 d├│lares as a donation to the zoo.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Look at the significado. He’s not a cheap Anthony Michael Hall circa “Weird Science,” but a thoughtful, tender soul whose support of this animal sanctuary reveals a premium placed on being community-minded. And cucarachas will survive a nuclear war.

Here’s hoping your amor does too.
