Woman Has 100,000 Cockroaches Says They Are Her Family

Woman devotes entire rural home to sweets-loving roach species that she sells to a pharmaceutical factory

KEYWORDS: china; insects; pets; pharmaceutical
While others would do everything in their power to keep cockroaches out of the house, one Chinese woman has welcomed the creepy critters – all 100,000 of them.

Yuan Meixia, a 37-year-old pharmacy employee in Fujian province, uses her countryside home next to the woods as a breeding ground for the roaches, which she then sells to a pharmaceutical company that uses it in certain medicines.

The insects will eventually be dried and sold to a factory in faraway Anhui province, but during their short lives with Yuan, she treats them “like her children”.

I would marry each and every one of them.

And pay no taxes. Ever.

Well, maybe only the female 50%. Then you could have a harem of sister wives, each collecting huge refunds every year.

When I lived in St. Louis with my first wife we would have been rich too.

She had a thing for pet mice and they would get loose and go into the walls and eat the roaches.

Looks like she’s eating one of her children. Reminds me of the song, “I’m Gonna’ Go Eat Worms”...of which one line sez, “...first you bite their heads off; then you slurp their guts out....” And....oh yeah, the ones of her kids the lady doesn’t eat, she sells!

When I was in NY city some time ago I checked into the YMCA. When I went up to my room there were at least 100,000 cockroaches waiting for me all over the bed, floors and walls. Needless to say, I didn’t want the room.

Sounds like a business to me ... but I couldn’t do it, can’t stand roaches. Other insects, arachnids, reptiles, no problem, but not roaches.

Oh God, don’t even get me started on those damn things. I unfortunately grew up in New york city and when the 90s came around all the liberals in the country treated NYC as the Mecca of liberalism and moved in, driving rents through the roof and as a result the landlords would try to evict the LTTs - long term tenants to make room for these trust fund leftist pukes by cutting heat and willfully infesting apartments. I would be sitting at my desk and cockroaches would be crawling all over my legs and back. Or sleeping and being woken up by them on my face.

She should at least have the right to marry them. Sure, it’s a choice most of us wouldn’t make, but...

A plural rural nocturnal marriage...easier to kill them and sell the corpses than pay child support.

Pretty soon, it’ll be legal in the U.S. for her to marry them, have them recognized as legal persons, as well as recognizing their offspring as legal persons.

I frequently consider selling my kids off for medical experiments when they’re in the back seat fighting. (^;

You breathe a minimum of five thousand fungal spores with every breath. Be careful which fungi you insult.

Traditional folk medicines...not necessarily something that would ever be approved by the FDA. Or at least not before the current administration.

I tried watching that movie once while drinking when I was much younger. The only thing I vaguely remember is a bunch of roaches singing while marching around the rim of a toilet.

They don't sell them - they pay handsomely to send them off to college where they volunteer to be test subjects for the price of a few slices of pizza.

The last apartment that I lived in the landlords would bomb the roach population back and forth from one end of the building to the other.

To this day I have nightmares over those things, probably the worst was this drunk woman (a hardcore Clinton fan BTW) who lived on the top floor of our building and one night she left chicken cooking in her oven and went to the bar and forgot about it which pretty much ended up burning out the entire top floor. When the firemen came and put the fire out with the water hoses, all the water went down between the walls and washed out literally millions of cockroaches, the stairs where absolutely black covered and crawling with them. It was right after that I moved. That was around 1995, I was paying maybe $600 -$700 for a one bedroom apartment in Queens New York city. A few months ago I looked up the same area, apartments are now going for $2700, so they pretty much added an extra $24,000 a year you have to pay in rent in 20 years. Liberals got their way. Now they can pay through the nose to live under Marxism while I laugh at them from afar and call them suckers lol lol
