Would you do it?

Saw a great article in the paper this morning. According to the article Six Flags Over Texas will let guests skip to the front of the Titan roller coaster line if they eat a live cockroach as part of their Fright Fest. You would also receive a pass to skip the lines on many other rides.

So my question is: Would you do it?

My answer is, Yes. I would do it, as long as I had some water or Coke to wash it down with!

Even though I have consumed a cockroach as part of a hot chocolate that I once had at a dodgy coffee shop I wouldn’t eat a live one.

Saw this on the news last night. Health department refuses to sign off. Six flags says, "but they're raised in a sterile environment!"

The roaches in question are Madagascan hissing cockroaches, fyi.

I think I heard the other day that the ASPCA, or PETA, or somebody is trying to get an injunction against Six Flags. They are claiming "cruelty to animals." Come on, if one of these guys saw a cockroach like this in their house they'd scream, stomp on it and clean it up without thinking about it.
