Yes, it is sad. Didn't have to happen. According to what they find, the family might be able to sue. There must be better ways to get the name of the shop "out there".....

Hmmm, first and foremost...WHY! Like the article said he wanted a python. I can understand that. I am not a snake person yet I know pythons can be quite expensive. But to eat roaches like you're in a hot dog eating contest is just a little too hard to swallow. "Pun, may or may have not been intended" haha. Bottom line is, yes it's a shame he died, but the dude ate a mass amount of bugs. Should make for an interesting obit.

Before he died he was observed scurrying under the bed every time the light was turned on.

when the boy saw a honeybee. He ran over and stomped it.
"Don't do that, that was a honeybee," his father said, "he wasn't doing anything to you. For killing him you will do without honey for a week."
Later the boy saw a butterfly, so he ran over and stomped on it.
"That was a butterfly," his father said, "he wasn't doing anything to you, and for killing him you will do without butter for a week."
suddenly a cockroach ran out from under the stove. His mother stomped on it.
The boy looked at his father and said, "Are you going to tell her, Dad, or should I?"

So true,

kinda like if we don't respect the
'wonderful machine' the human body is,
it'll let us know in no uncertain terms.

Sad too though, I agree.
