Just think how awful he would feel if he came in second.

One aspect of the maturation process all humans go through is to differentiate between food and everything else that isn’t. This is one of the reasons they don’t leave Strychnine laying around close to school yards, for when Tommy double dog dares you to eat some and your rep is placed in peril with the all the other kids. College frats don’t help the problem, swallowing a few dozen little Nemo’s along with the usual 27 beers, but we all have done dumb things in college. As an aside; I think Joey Chestnut is a god, but I digress.

But some things are best left stepped on and not eaten:

Authorities say the winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms. The grand prize in Friday night’s contest was a live python.

After committing this culinary Faux Pas (worms don’t go with cockroaches, they are a whole different species) he probably died of embarrassment.

Is there a creature on the planet more associated with disease and filth then cockroaches? Who enters these contests, and even stranger, who sponsors them?

Contest time; What’s the weirdest/oddest/must unusual thing you have ever eaten?

Back in my younger days, I did a short stint in the military, I was a dog handler in Panama (it is usually exotic lands where you would sample unusual fare) but while there I tried both monkey meat and snake (I assume python). Both were cooked barbecue style on little hibachi’s on every other street corner. I found both pretty tasty. Too bad Obama does not read our blog, we could get a random opinion on the chewyness between say cocker spaniel and golden retriever (que up a predictable chastisement from CM on how I am propagating scurrilous allegations in 3…….2……..1)

I doubt there are any bug eaters out there, but I could be wrong.
