    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?

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
