Signs The World Is Coming To An End: Man Dies In Roach Eating Contest!

BACK IN THE DAY,  we ran from roaches, because they were nasty and would lay eggs in your ear! I mean, that’s what I heard! I will tell you, this sucks! I mean, this is crazy! What is the world coming to? I mean SERIOUSLY! This happened in the damn USA. A roach eating contest? But, wait, it gets BETTER. A man dies from eating too many roaches in said contest. Peep the AP report:


MIAMI (AP) – A Florida man choked to death after downing dozens of live roaches to win a contest earlier this year in which the grand prize was a python, according to an autopsy released Monday.
Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach died as a result of “asphyxia due to choking and aspiration of gastric contents,” according to the report released by the Broward County medical examiner’s office. It said his airway was obstructed by the roach body parts, which caused him to not be able to breathe.

“There is a flap called the epiglottis that is supposed to stop objects from going into the lungs,” medical examiner Craig T. Mallak wrote in an email to the AP. “Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work. In the video you could see him trying to swallow and breathe at the same time. We can’t do both simultaneously.”

Lab tests for drugs came back negative. The death has been ruled an accident.
“It’s hard to even think about it,” said Kim Crawford, co-owner of Busch Canvas & Interiors where Archbold worked for four years. “It does bring a little closure because not knowing always puts that question mark out there.”
Crawford described Archbold as a “smart, good guy” who was “really good friends to people. She said a photo of Archbold and news clippings of the accident still hang in the main office.

“It’s just a tragedy.”

Archbold died after downing the bugs as well as worms in the Oct. 6 contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach, about 40 miles north of Miami.

But, is it a tragedy? Clearly, it sucks that a person died. I’m not able to muster a lot of sympathy right now, because its so nasty.
By, the way, the world is supposed to end this year, per the Mayans. The Bible disagrees, but what if? Here is a way to get whatever you need to get off your chest, OFF. Peep the video from Chloe Hilliard, a comic and acclaimed journalist and send her a letter confessing all that needs to be confessed.

Illseed, Out.
