Well... play stupid games, win stupid prizes. But what I'd really like to know is who the heck thought that this would be a fun contest?

Little Joe 10-09-2012 20:37

I'd like to hear the autopsy results of what actually killed him.

Cali-Glock 10-09-2012 20:39

My money is that he died of a shellfish allergy - lobsters are essentially just giant sea cockroaches. :-)

Interesting. Could very well be.

I play it safe and stick to the Mosaic diet. Fins and scales, and split hoofs and cud chewers. :supergrin:

Already have a thread on that, but it kinda veered off towards using frozen snakes as spears. :wavey:

I say homeboy either had a heart attack (as in he was on something else at the time) or he choked on the puke.

Heart attack was my initial thought.

PBCounty 10-09-2012 21:13

Bet no one was too interested in mouth to mouth...

I expect the story in the cockroach world news was a little different

No doubt. I remember giving a guy CPR in a bar back in the '80s who died of a massive heart attack. He puked up beer on me, and I had to keep going. Not much fun, but it wasn't much fun for him either.

Been there Sir.

i'm not taking any chances, that one experience is off my bucket list:tongueout:. what a relief. too bad he had to die to convince me:embarassed:

Well, at least he doesn't live in Florida anymore.

Lowjiber 10-10-2012 05:06

The average IQ of Florida just nudged up a bit. Anyone who eats cockroaches to win a python is an idiot. Period.

You've got to admit that it all ties together pretty nicely - in some weird, twisted Darwinian way.

Agreed, my money is on vomit aspiration.:wavey:

I guess the only real problem with eating roaches is germs from the crap they eat and live in. If you feed 'em out, like possums, you just have the allergic and psychological factors to overcome.

I think tactical frozen copperrattlemoccasin spears could warrant their own subforum...

I read these were "farm" raised roaches sold at the pet store as food for lizards and things.

Yeah they were just going to release it into the wild in a few years anyway :rofl:
