Would You Rather Have a Nasty Pet Cockroach?

The other day someone read one of my posts on Facebook about, well, electric blue crayfish. Heck, what else am I going to write about. They mentioned how crayfish were so nasty and, you know the drill, “Why would you own a pet cray?” Okay, maybe blue crayfish aren’t everyone’s thing. I get it. I mean they do have lots of legs, claws and will literally eat anything.—They just don’t sound like someone or some thing you’d want to hang out with do they? BUT… IT COULD BE WORSE!

At least my pet crayfish are blue. That’s a pretty color right? Well hell yeah it is. I mean, the sky is blue.—And it was made blue because blue is a pretty color. Now imagine if the sky was brown, poop brown. That would be some pretty ugly stuff to wake up to right? So what the heck is my point? (I have one I promise.)

The Pet Cockroach… A Pet What?

Well as I said earlier, it could be worse! By that I mean, I could have a pet cockroach. Some of you may know about these pets. They are poop brown and… nasty. Well, in my opinion anyway.

The most common cockroach species that are kept as pets are the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach (Gromphadorhina portentosa), the Death’s Head Roach (Blaberus craniifer) and the Indian Domino Cockroach (Therea petiveriana). This means nothing to me. These little bastards are still cockroaches.

Actually, they are worse than other cockroaches. Now you got some of these creepy ass things chirping. Why in the hell do they need to chirp? They are not cute little birds or anything you’d ever want to pet. I believe their one role is to simply complete their part in the food chain. Did you also know that they hear with their feet? Freaks!

So my question to the readers. Would you rather have yourself a pretty electric blue crayfish or a nasty brown chirping cockroach… who may or may not survive nuclear fall out. (Nasty thing probably will.)

Most of you would probably rather have a dog or cat or something that won’t actually try to eat each other, but if you had to choose, which one would you pick?

Yeah, so what, an electric blue crayfish may eat your other fish… or even another crayfish, but have you ever found one in a bag of chips? Your cereal box? Nope.
