It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: Man Dies After Cockroach Eating Contest

Posted by   + Show Post

Welcome to Mom to Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

Edward Archbold was the "life of the party" kind of a guy who entered a superworm eating contest. Later he was in a cockroach eating contest and he won! Then he got sick and died. Tests are being conducted to determine the cause of death.

1. Do you think the bugs killed him, or that it was probably an unfortunate coincidence?

2. Was the store negligent in even allowing this contest to take place?

3. Would you ever enter an insect eating contest or other risky contest?

1. Do you think the bugs killed him, or that it was probably an unfortunate coincidence? I think he died not because of the bug but what might of been on the bug?!?!?!?

2. Was the store negligent in even allowing this contest to take place?  The store should of never of let that take place because now they may have a lawsuit on there hands!!!

3. Would you ever enter an insect eating contest or other risky contest? I would never enter myself or any one eals i know in something so sick and dusting like that!!!

I don't think it was the bugs. I think it was engaging in two eating contests in the same day.


2. Was the store negligent in even allowing this contest to take place? I don't think so. It was his choice to participate in both of them. 

3. Would you ever enter an insect eating contest or other risky contest?

Hell No. I don't like eating contests at all no matter what the food is that is being served.
