You are what you eat?

The MSN news feed has a story about some poor sap who choked to death after winning, I kid you not, a cockroach eating contest. The post-mortem exam found that his airway was "blocked with arthropod parts." Apparently those creepy little legs and nifty shiny wings don't slide down as the gullet easily as hot dogs or other more typical eating contest treats.

You know, I'm not a believer in an afterlife, but if there is one, it won't matter where this guy ends up. Can you imagine spending eternity being razzed about dying because you ate cockroaches?  


  1. Other than myself, what if they are the only protein left after "the Big One" hits the planet? Just speculating.

  2. Jono, you'll have to remember to pull the legs off first and then chew thoroughly before swallowing.

  3. Think I would prefer them sauteed, and only eat enough of them to get by.

    I believe in an afterlife but it's up to you to make up your own and not let others tell you what it is.


My space, my rules: play nice and keep it on topic.
