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?

people eat cockroaches all over the world so unless he choked, some weird sifi event happened where one was alive and ate through his organs, OR the store used cock roaches not sutable for consumption for whatever reason (dug them out of sewers and garbage bins out back???) then I do not think the roaches killed him.

It doesnt bother me the store held such a contest

No friggin way would I eat bugs. I don't find a bug eating contest risky, so by "ther risky contest" I am unsure what qualifies and so unsure if I would compete!

Blech... someone posted this on FB this morning. I am not brave enough to read the article. I am nauseous enough this morning as it is, so I can't answer the questions.

Oh, but I can answer. No no no... I would NEVER do any type of eating contest. Insect or not. No thank you. :P


Can I have an iced coffee?

probabably, because they are really dirty.

Maybe it was how many he ate. And no, I would NEVER eat a roach.

First off, ew. 

Second, I'm not surprised! Maybe they burrowed in his esophagus and tried to eat their way out.
