An autopsy has concluded that a Florida man choked to death after downing dozens of live roaches during a contest earlier this year.

The report released Monday says 32-year-old Edward Archbold of West Palm Beach died as a result of "asphyxia due to choking and aspiration of gastric contents."

Lab tests for drugs came back negative. The death has been ruled an accident.

I’m surprise that this didn’t happen on Fear Factor. Those are the same disgusting things they eat there — along with live scorpions.

Looks like they scrubbed the pics. Probably too many people “blowing lunch”.

St. Peter, at the Pearly Gates: “Let’s see, it says here, ‘Edward Archbold, West Palm Beach, Florida, age 32.’ Is that correct?”

Ed: “Yes, sir, it is.”

St. Peter: “OK, now what was it that brings you here?”

Ed: “Well, I was eating dozens of live cockroaches, and I guess it didn’t agree with me.”

St. Peter: “Ya think? Now you’re lucky that being stupid is not a disqualfier, son.”

Ed: “Excuse me, sir, is there a restroom up here somewhere? I think I’m not quite over it. . . .”

Well, you can’t blame THAT on the roaches. Let this be a lesson to us all: always chew your roaches thoroughly before swallowing and be sure to have a glass of water or your favorite beverage on hand to wash them down.

They go down much easier if you call them palmetto bugs.

I think you’re right. That’s probably exactly what killed Cockroach Guy:

Live ones crawling back up his throat.

Choked to death on his own vomit of masticated worms and roaches. What a way to go.
