:ack: I might have participated for a Colt Python but a snake? Actually, after thinking about it, no I wouldn't.

The only good cockroach is a dead cockroach. Had to fumigate our Apartment house twice because someone brought those filthy bugs in with their belongings. I HATE THEM!

I wouldnt eat a single cockroach for 100lbs of solid gold, much less a damn snake.

One of the few things I wouldnt try. Ive always hated them.

I have tried crickets, meal worms, and scorpion. Fried crickets raised on fruit are actually good. The other two, i didnt much care for. Scorpion was nasty...but he tasted like wood.

Roaches id never try even if they where delicious.

What did you do that was worse than eating a roach and what did you get for it?

Took a nice big long draw off of a piss bottle, realized it to late, had to swallow the mouthful that I had already taken. I was getting paid as an E-3 at the time.

A cockroach for a few million dollars? Give me a little salt and a little lime.

I had a buddy that always bought some horrible brand of vodka that had a scorpion in the bottle, finish the bottle eat the scorpion. At first I thought it was disgusting, I didn't even want to look at the bottle when we would drink it... then I finally got down to the scorpion's level and it wasn't that bad.

Id prefer the pee and scorpion to a roach, personally.

But that's pretty gross.

In this instance the roach was alive.

100 lbs og gold - Yep. Snake? Wouldn't eat a McDonald's happy meal for one.

I have nothing against snakes and caught them when I was a little kid, but I've never figured out the adults who want them for pets. They seem to have in common that they are pretty strange people who like to have others think of them as strange, even if it means having really boring and useless pets.

I like your description. What in the world can you possibly do with a snake that's fun?

Think of them as pet fish that you can carry out of the tank; and can bite you.

I too like snakes, but I don't own one.

And if you leave the head unfrozen, you can make a biting spear. How cool is that? :cool:

Gotta love creative answers. I like them as a curiosity. Like if someone has one, I might touch it. Other than that, not very interesting to me. Watching a constrictor eat is pretty cool, but I think my rats are cuter and more fun to watch than any snake, so I couldn't imagine constantly killing one.

Must have han an open bar before the 'snacks.' They did say it was an expensive snake, I have heard of some going for 75k.

knowing who Ben Siegel is, the snake was most likely quite valuable.

This would not have been a "pet snake".

The gun show crowd and the reptile show crowd are pretty similar with the reptile folks having a few more piercings and the gun show people leaning a bit more towards big guts and grey facial hair.

Two things.

The picture of the unfortunate man looks like a mug shot.

Look at the expression of the female newscaster at the end of the clip.

Oh actually 3 things.

Probably a pre-existing condition that kicked in at the wrong time. If you're eating cockroaches, worms and whatever the hell else he was chewing on, you've got some problems.

There are a lot of things I would do for 2.7 Million dollars.

But if I were to eat bugs and worms, I want to know where they came from.
