    In Florida, of course. Only in Florida. I bet he's getting an after-life high-five from the asshole last month who drowned winning an underwater breath-holding contest. Wait...there IS no after-life. Darwin strikes again.


    DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. - A West Palm Beach man died after winning a roach-eating contest, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said Monday.

    Immediately after eating dozens of roaches and worms, Edward Archbold, 32, said he wasn't feeling well and began to regurgitate, according to the sheriff's office.

    Archbold was participating in the contest Friday night at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach.

    Several contestants signed up to eat a variety of insects for the chance to win an exotic reptile.

    The grand prize: a Python.

    Archbold later collapsed in front of the store, according to deputies.

    Broward Fire Rescue responded to the scene and transported Archbold to Broward Health North, where he was later pronounced dead. AND AN ASSHOLE!

    Really. It might just cover the cost of his cremation.

    Most people who own snakes, tarantulas/spiders, etc just own them so they can tell people they own a snake, tarantula/spider, etc.

    Apparently if you are allergic to shell fish roaches have the same effect .

    Don't most bugs and worms eat shit, garbage and other filth? Or at least crawl around in it all day?
    Maybe he went toxic.

    shells and bug carapace are made of chitin

    cockroaches and lobster are same family group (Myriapoda), have similar evolutionary backgrounds and similar biology so their shells are made of similar chemicals. if you're allergic to one, you probably react to the others as well. think shrimp parts are also made of chitin.

    i bet he had or acquired ulcers and some made it through into his abdomen. he probably bled out internally. they don't die that quickly even if you decapitate them. if he ate enough of them the movement probably ripped his insides.

    That would be cool. The allergic reaction hypothesis would be a lame way to go out.

    I wonder if he swallowed some whole and they were crawling around in his body going insane, biting etc. etc.

    There could be a few still inside of him chowing down.

    Regardless of the "how"... What a fucking idiot.

    And the "prize" Python in question was probably a Ball Python which is easily acquired for less than like, 50 bucks.

    could you just see the medical examiner doing the autopsy? he opens the abdominal cavity and they pour out. make a good episode of the x files.
