NYC man eats roaches for an iPod

‘They were good,’ he said, cradling the box with the small computer inside. ‘Crunchy and salty. I would eat them again.’”

Obviously this is the easiest way to win an iPod yet. Twelve, come on, piece of cake.

Whoops, bakers dozen. 13, still not too hard. Those bug eating contests are all mental, just picture eating candy and close your eyes.

The box with the small computer inside? I thought he was getting an iPod.

ALERT!

Talk about slow! Hey people, if you think ipodlounge is so great, how come they post silly stories like “Man eats roaches for iPod” instead of giving us the skinny on the NEW 60G 6TH GENERATION photo iPOD coming out in 60 days!

i’ve eaten roaches (actually water bugs) on my trips to asia and polished off alot more than a dozen at a sitting.  no doubt about it i would’ve won the contest had i entered.  nothing goes better with a cold brew than a creepy crawly.
