Bug eater Dies In Cockroach Eating Contest? Really He Ate?.. Oh That’s Just…
Ok now I heard of some outlandish things people do, but this one takes the cake (or rather the Jimmy The Cricket). This guy Ed Archbold decided on a friday night, when most people typically are partying, or having a drink with some friends, stuff of that nature, he pulls into a reptile store and joins a bug eating contest.

Matter of fact, thirty other contestants join the fun jumping into the contest. In bizarre fashion, they endulged in eating a barricade of cockroaches and mixed up in the recipe was stringy worms.
(Gotta tell right off there… yuck, yuck, Yuck!
I would lose that contest with justified pride LOL.) But these brave contestants, weathered the storm to in this crazy off the wall challenge that would probably make Pippy Long Stockings’s twin braided ponytails stand up on each side of her head! The basic thing to the contest was that the contestants was trying to munch down the roaches and worms in order to claim a even more twist of a feat prize…
They where doing it for a expensive snake, yea you heard right a SNAKE! And before the contestants can even participate in the contest, they have to sign a waiver form stating that they are not drunk, or taking any type of drug, and if they are not allergic to shellfish.
So I read on that a little to find out that people can have a bad reaction (allergic) to shellfish of course as most people know, but roaches are also included in that category. The even more tripped out part to this bizarre story, is that the bugs used in the contest where domestically bread meaning that these are bugs that are to eaten by specifically reptiles.
After Archbold’s death, a medical examiner was still trying to determine how he died do to explain his cause of death (Internally). The other contestants came out of the contest ok. Over in West Palm Beach, Florida where Archbold lived a neighbor said to reporters that talked to them about what happened and one said that “It was strange, really strange I don’t know what to even make of it”.
But a local store owner said that he was cool person, and people liked his personality, he was outgoing and life of the party. Now I watched stuff like Fear Factor and i gotta say, I THOUGHT THOSE PEOPLE WHERE INSANE!! LOL.
They would eat stuff like cow tongues, bugs, different types of eyes from some type of animal or reptile. Hell, I saw one where a girl was drinking donkey squirt!! And i’m thinking who would want to even attempt to rub their nose against her lips after that one (The Boyfriend Probably Packed His Bags And Ran For County State Line When She Say Kiss Me You Fool!)… ROTFLIR!
But you know people do what they do, they do it for fun, or some other motive. But it’s sad to hear when someone loses their life, it really is.
So to Ed Archbold R.I.P. Bro, and that’s all I gotta say about that.
My Motto: Stay, clam, cool, collective, knowing that the only thing that keeps you from making a difference is yourself strive for the best!
