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”.

Edward Archbold, this Bug’s for you.
a Florida man choked to death after downing dozens of live roaches during a contest earlier this year.
But did he win?
At least he died doing what he loved to do.

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.

Got to make sure they’re dead before you swallow them!

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