NO! NO! NO!
I accidentally saw part of it on TV as I was looking for the remote and was jumping and screaming "gross gross gross," kids laughing and gagging, and I'm fumbling with the darn thing cause I couldn't think of the cartoon channel! NO I don't want to see it!!

Roaches are for smoking, not eating.

No wonder he choked.
