The El Paso Zoo will name a cockroach after your ex and feed it to a meercat on Valentines Day.

The link doesn't work.

But, why do people fall for the scam of Valentines Day? I don't get it. It's a fake holiday.

The link works fine for me.

Regarding a "fake holiday," it's not considered an actual holiday...by any state or the fed's.

As to being a scam, how in the world can designating a day to show your schweetie how much you love them and to inject a little romance into your relationship...be considered a "scam?"

Particularly, since it's not like anyone...is being forced to participate

No one can be forced/pressed/coerced/pressured/compelled/prodded/Etc., to exhibit love toward their schweetie...against their will.

I wish you had told me that 50 years ago. It would have saved me a lot of money.

So sad that some people are so petty. Takes 2 to make a great marriage. Grow up and move on. Leave the past in the past and focus on making your life worth living now. Don't waste your time and energy on someone who literally couldn't care less about you anymore and doesn't give you a second thought.
