Man dies after eating live roaches at a contest.

"The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing
dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday.

About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store
in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python. Edward Archbold, 32,
of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in front of the
store, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office statement released Monday. He was taken to
the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy
to determine a cause of death."


Determine the cause of death? How about extreme stupidity?
