The 32-year-old from Florida entered a bug-eating competition to win a python.

He ate 60 grams of meal worms, 35 three-inch superworms and a bucket full of cockroaches. He died.

God knows what his insides thought about all these bugs bombing around.

Cockroaches survive nuclear fallouts. I imagine they get pretty annoyed sharing someone’s stomach with a load of worms.
