    :ack: I might have participated for a Colt Python but a snake? Actually, after thinking about it, no I wouldn't.

    The only good cockroach is a dead cockroach. Had to fumigate our Apartment house twice because someone brought those filthy bugs in with their belongings. I HATE THEM!

    I wouldnt eat a single cockroach for 100lbs of solid gold, much less a damn snake.

    One of the few things I wouldnt try. Ive always hated them.

    I have tried crickets, meal worms, and scorpion. Fried crickets raised on fruit are actually good. The other two, i didnt much care for. Scorpion was nasty...but he tasted like wood.

    Roaches id never try even if they where delicious.

    What did you do that was worse than eating a roach and what did you get for it?

    Took a nice big long draw off of a piss bottle, realized it to late, had to swallow the mouthful that I had already taken. I was getting paid as an E-3 at the time.

    A cockroach for a few million dollars? Give me a little salt and a little lime.

    I had a buddy that always bought some horrible brand of vodka that had a scorpion in the bottle, finish the bottle eat the scorpion. At first I thought it was disgusting, I didn't even want to look at the bottle when we would drink it... then I finally got down to the scorpion's level and it wasn't that bad.

    Id prefer the pee and scorpion to a roach, personally.

    But that's pretty gross.

    In this instance the roach was alive.

    100 lbs og gold - Yep. Snake? Wouldn't eat a McDonald's happy meal for one.

    I have nothing against snakes and caught them when I was a little kid, but I've never figured out the adults who want them for pets. They seem to have in common that they are pretty strange people who like to have others think of them as strange, even if it means having really boring and useless pets.

    For 2.7 million dollars I'd probably have sex with a wookie.

    I would have expected someone to come up with either a barbecue recipe or some deep frying method by now.

    I like your description. What in the world can you possibly do with a snake that's fun?
