Fright Fest line jumping pass

EW!!!!!

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/09/21/eat....ap/index.html

Wanna cut in line? Eat a live cockroach

GURNEE, Illinois (AP) -- Why wait in line when you can just eat a cockroach?

That's the question Six Flags Great America is asking thrill seekers during a Halloween-themed FrightFest. The amusement park is daring customers to eat a live Madagascar hissing cockroach in exchange for unlimited line-jumping privileges.

The promotion, which has Lake County Health Department officials shaking their heads, starts October 7.

Anyone who chows down the entire 2- to 3-inch horned cockroach gets a pass for four people to cut to the front of ride lines through October 29.

Park officials insist it's safe to eat the crunchy critters, but health officials are cautioning participants.

Consuming live roaches might increase risks of gastrointestinal illness and allergies, according to Bill Mays, Lake County Health Department's community health director.

Cockroach eaters will have to sign waivers and still pay admission fees, said Six Flags spokesman James Taylor.

I can't eat celery so there's no way I'm eating that.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

The only way I'd eat that is if they let me wear Eva Guerra's (sp) ass like a hat when I was finished.



Edit-

Is it Vida Guerra? I don't remember, I just want to wear her ass like a hat.

Yes, Vida Guerra. And if I could wear her ass as a hat I would eat the cockaroach.

I use to work w/ the hissing cockroaches in college. I don't think they would go down easy due to the tines on their legs...might make for a scratchy throat if you didn't chew it up enough. I'd give it a try.

I was thinking the same thing. as tough as those bastards are they'd be crawling around in your throat/stomach if you didn't kill them before you swallowed.

Fuck that shit.

Heard it on the radio the other day and it would be alive. I'll just hide behind my opinion of not killing other living things unless my life is in danger.

See, I probably wouldn't do it, until I got in a line and after waiting for an hour and a half, saw a sign that read "From this line, wait is approximately 45 minutes." Then I'd be like, where the hell are those cock-a-roaches?!?
