Kentucky Man Sets Cockroach Record

(YouTube link)

Travis Fessler of Florence, Kentucky breaks the world record of putting the most Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches in his mouth by stuffing 11 roaches into his mouth at one time. This beats the previous record of 9 which was set by Jungle John Lamedica. The recod was broken by Fessler to promote Mayhem Mansion a charity haunted house in Morning View, Kentucky.

Update: Check out Travis Fessler's website and business. And the site for information on Mayhem Mansion, the charity haunted house.

Well, I hope his parents are still around to share in their son's accomplishment.

I can just see mom, head rested on her old man's chest, tears streaming down her cheeks - 'We done good, Lloyd Fessler - we done good.'

'Erma-Leigh, I always knowed our son would do something great. He weren't no good in school, but you just could tell he had the Fessler family cockroachin' gene in him.'

FYI, our man Travis isn't a low-brow pinhead but a celebrated side-show freak entertainer:

it's a shame jungle john's record got broken. He was the star an assembly at my elementary school where he terrified everyone with a huge snake and crocodile.
