Cockroaches are literally the worst. They don’t seem to offer a lot to the world, and yet you know they’d be the last thing standing in the event of a Nuclear Armageddon. They’re gross, for sure, but that doesn’t deny them their right to a decent burial, I guess.

Generally speaking, dead cockroaches just lay about in hot climates until they are cleared away or presumably eaten by some larger predator. Dead cockroaches clearly are not a good vibe. So it’s both funny and dark that students at Texas A & M University embraced a dead one, instead of simply clearing its remains up.
Supposedly, the cockroach — named ‘Rosie’ — had been laying in a stairwell at the university for at least two weeks before the first tribute was laid.
A professor at Texas A&M University posted to Facebook:
There has been a dead cockroach in the Anthropology building’s stairwell for at least two weeks.. Some enterprising person has now made her a little shrine.
Then came more paraphernalia: a cigarette, candles, mini trees and a funeral pyre was made for her.
After two weeks of memorials, Rosie the Roach was finally cremated and everyone was able to start moving on.
Best memorial we’ve seen since this mock funeral these lads put on for their best mate because he spends all of his time with his girlfriend. Brutal!
