A bargain with crunch

People do a lot of strange things for money. You don’t have to go far – turn on TV and watch the highly popular Fear Factor series. What does it have to do with bargain hunting? Read on. First you have to take this test though. What do you feel reading the following:

I reached into the writhing bowl to pick one, a male – based on the two horns on his head when I stared at him face to face. And then there was a pause. Light reflected off his brown and yellow back. His black legs gently kicked forward.
The first, lightning-fast bite was like tearing into a prune, with a similar chewy texture.
The second bite burst out the insides, which had a gooey consistency a little like jelly.
There was no movement after the initial crunch.
The most difficult part was grinding down the exoskeleton, which flaked apart between the molars but didn’t want to dissolve. It was a little like trying to chew several peanuts still in their shells.
A minute or so later, the cockroach was ground down to a grainy paste suitable for successful swallowing.
But there were still a few tiny shell fragments left trying to get between my teeth.

How did it go? Not sure yet? Watch this clip then:

Well by now you should have a pretty good idea what to expect should you take on the Six Flags Great America cockroach challenge. The theme park is giving anyone who eats an entire 2-3 inch Madagascar Cockroach four passes to cut to the front of ride lines through October 29th.

No, this is not a joke… Now off to get the deal while supplies last! ;-)
