Barrrrrrrrrrrf!

I didnt want to be the only one feeling ill after reading this, so I thought I'd bring it to the attention of my blog readers. Misery loves company, or so I've heard. So... read it and retch, people. Read it and retch.

"Most cockroaches eaten
Ken Edwards of Glossop, Derbyshire, England ate 36 cockroaches in one minute on the set of The Big Breakfast on March 5, 2001. Swallowing cockroaches is "like having an anaesthetic at the back of the throat," because of the scent they emit to ward off predators, he says."

it is supposed to be very healthy to eat insects what with all the protein you can get. but with cockroaches considering the places they frequent,this health benefit might by stymied and you can get a few hidden extras as well
