Man dies after winning live roach-eating contest in Florida

http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2012/10/man_dies_after_wi...

Authorities say the winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms. The grand prize in Friday night's contest was a live python.

The Broward County sheriff's office says in a news release that it is waiting for an autopsy to give the official cause of death... 32-year-old Edward Archbold became ill soon after winning and collapsed in front of the Ben Siegel Reptile Store where the contest was held. The store is in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. Archbold was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say several contestants ate insects but no one else became ill.

One of the roaches that Archbold ate must have been past its sell-by date.

It's too bad CSI: Miami was cancelled. This would have made an excellent basis for an episode.

Same here. Ugg.

Well, the Old Testament mentions that some locusts are kosher.

As part of a 'survival' boy scout campout once, I ate some grasshopper legs. We spent about 24 hours in the Texas bush with nothing to eat except what we could find. It was to hot for the fish to bite in the nearby lake so the only thing we found were grasshappers and ants.

I concluded that the Texas countryside would kill you unless you had a gun to shoot with, which the scout master was unwilling to do for a bunch of 12 year olds. <g>

We all went home hungry. I remember gorging on several bowls of Honeycombs cereal as soon as I got home. <g>
