You Can Now Name A Snake After Your Slimy Ex At This Zoo

This is an international calling to every person who's ever been done over by an ex and wants a little bit of comfort (probably the majority of us) - a zoo in Australia is offering the chance to name a snake after your ex for Valentine's Day.

Yep, the day of love will soon be upon us, and for many people it means gushy Instagram posts, chocolates and flowers. For those who've experienced the tragic side of romance, however, it can taste a little lot more bitter.

And, because someone at this zoo clearly understands how it feels to be spurned or have your heart broken, they have come up with the perfect answer for scorned lovers by offering the chance to name a snake after your venomous ex.

All you have to do is fill out a form for Wild Life Sydney Zoo, explaining why your ex is the ultimate snake, and the zoo will decide who will slither to the top of the leader-board.

To be specific, you have to briefly explain why your ex deserves to inspire the name of a brown snake, which is one of the world's most venomous breeds.

Think Jeremy Kyle without the physical audience.

Then you just need to provide the zoo with your ex's name before making a small donation of $1 to the Wild Life Conservation Fund, which is a pretty genius fundraising tactic. Bravo, Sydney Zoo, bravo.

The winner will not only get to tell the world their ex is the namesake of one of the most venomous snakes in the world, they also get a certificate and the opportunity to visit the snake for free every day for the next year.

Just what you want when you're attempting to forget about the person who pissed you off, right?

If you're unsure as to whether or not to air your dirty laundry in public... well, what've you got to lose? If you've got a super-slimy ex who deserves to be shamed, then apply here now.

Or follow in the footsteps of these brave folk who have jumped at the opportunity to name and shame their ex - commenting online, one person wrote: "The only good things to come out of having a relationship with a snake would be that you get to support wildlife."

While another commented like a true hero, describing their ex in as a 'Massster of Deccception'.

They continued: "He ensssnared a lady from her homeland to ssseek a sssanctimonioussss lifessstyle, and after yearsss of liesss he sssslid away from his promissse to move to Aussstralia.

"Ssserupticiously he also sssnuck an affair with a sssalaciousss hussssssy...a truly ssselfish sssniviling sssnake..."

Entry closes on 13 February, giving the zoo time to consider all applications before announcing the winner on Valentine's Day.
