Would You Eat A Hissing Cockroach To Win Season Pass To Amusement Park?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Several Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park visitors participated in a cockroach eating contest to win 2012 season passes to the park."


I`d rather be Oprah Winfrey`s manservant for a year, than eat a single Madagascar hissing cockroach. Call me prissy, but I prefer that my food doesn`t hiss.


I am such a wimp that I won`t get into a Ferris Wheel if I don`t have a partner to hold my hand throughout the ordeal. I would never eat a cockroach for the privilege of a season pass to an amusement park where all the rides make me scream like a schoolgirl.

Any idiot who ate a cockroach within two minutes won a 2012 season pass to the park. My guess is that all the "winners" were dudes; I don`t think any female would be happy about the prospect of having insect parts stuck in her teeth.
