LOL, don't get mad at me please, but this should make PeTA happy!
They don't like people eating giant cockroaches at Marine get ahead in line.
They say it's "cruelty to animals."
What a day today in Care2 news. Ty Agnes! :-))

Didn't you mean Koch-roaches? They certainly fall under this category.

The thing I liked most about them was the crunchy sound they made when I smacked them into oblivion with a flyswatter!
They make for a good heart rate accerator, chase scene workout, vocalization exercise and grand finale knowing there is one less roach left to reproduce and run across the ceiling.
We are sooooooooooooo lucky they haven't acquired (yet) the taste for human blood!!!

Fascinating, yes you certainly may be right about that janet f! Some of them aren't so little like the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach. Liable to produce one hissy fit and scurry away as fast as lightning. So true Gloria H, at least we have no vampire cockroaches except for some of our corporations and politicians. So, no need for cloves of garlic or a stake to drive through its tiny little heart...
