It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: Man Dies After Cockroach Eating Contest
October 9, 2012 at 9:18 AM

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?

    Thanks for taking the time to share with us! Here's a nice warm drink for you. :)


    Quoting GirlWithANikon:

    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!

    LOL! I hope your nauseousness goes away soon. (Is that a word?!)

    Enjoy your iced coffee.


    Quoting splatz:

    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?

    Kind of makes you wonder, huh?

    Enjoy this apple cider!


    Quoting LadyBugMom09:

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

    Can you imagine that? Yuck!

    I hope you'll enjoy this drink.

    First off, ew. 

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

    I don't know if it killed him or not, there are lots of people who eat bugs every single day of the week and they never get sick. It would depend on how the store prepared it, how clean it was, his own health..there are far too many variables.

    As for me, I'm willing to try almost anything as long as it's dead first. I wouldn't do an eating contest for anything though. The few times I've actually seen them (even for things like hot dogs), it makes me feel sick watching people wolf down food that fast.


    Hot chocolate and chocolate glazed doughnut for me please.

    I agree. It's hard to tell what the cause was.

    I hope you enjoy your hot chocolate and doughnut. :)

    A few years ago a radio station had a water drinking competition, a woman died from water intoxication because of it. The family sued, I dont know if they won or not.

    In this case idk ... If he didn't chew them up, they were all alive in there!

    And no order, I've lost my appetite.
