FTA: A Florida man choked to death in October after eating dozens of live cockroaches in a contest to win a python, an autopsy has found.

Well, this was nothing but a fantastic idea all the way around.

I think Darwin would be so immensely disgusted by this even HE wouldn't want his name on it. Seriously, this is the most disgusting disgustingness with 15% more disgustingness that is more disgusting. I can barely type this without projectile barfing myself. And I sure as hell am not clicking on the actual story.

Forget the Florida tag, submitter? This is the type of thing that's endemic to Florida.

There was a dumb redneck who swallowed a cockroach,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside him,
He swallowed the cockroach to win the snake,
I don't know why he wanted to win the snake,
Perhaps he'll die?

The staff at the coroner's office facepalmed so hard they knocked themselves out. Each time they regained consciousness and remembered what they were doing they facepalmed again.

I like the way we've turned a cry for attention in the playground into the pinnacle of human cultural achievement. Now make with the Family Guy barfing pics.

WTF? Can't you just go out in your yard and pick one up in Florida?

I just found a worse way of going out than drowning in a porta-potty.

I need an Irony rating over here. He choked to death on the bugs he was killing. There's some natural justice and a reversal of actions.

/must be ironic since the tag wasn't used...

If you live in S. Florida, you pretty much can, actually.

I'd imagine it took a month because it's FL and you have a ton of asshats dying in odd ways, so you have a backlog of these things.

/what kind of fatty was this guy that he can't choke back a little vomit and keep going.
//Wasn't there a fat guy with a frickin half of a Wendy's spoon stuck in his lung.

DUDE! Don't do shiat like that. Blech. Roaches just creep me right the hell out.

Spiders I can handle. Snakes? Love 'em. But let a roach skitter past me and I'm
all like the "eek a mouse!" lady on Tom & Jerry that you only ever see from the
knees down.

At one point in his life, I'm pretty sure this guy said, "I'd die to have a python, man!"

So instead of a python, he won a Darwin? But what's more important, society as a whole is the real winner.
