Roach Eating Contest
Yes this buggy story is true. Six Flags Great America is offering visitors of its Halloween-themed FrightFest a chance to get out of waiting in long lines to get on rides. From October 7 through October 29, customers who eat a live 3 inch Madagascar hissing cockroach get unlimited line-jumping privileges for themselves and four others.
Six Flags spokesman James Taylor says he's hoping somebody can beat the British man who currently holds the cockroach-eating world recorded - 36 roaches, recorded in the 2001 Guinness Book of World Records.
Don't hold your breath, dude.
