Hello Guys,

Well as I am from Australian we High Schooler's started today my whole Home Room heard a Story that my HR Teacher told us about a man who Licked an envelope which had cockroach eggs on it and becuase they were so small they fell into the mans touge and when he started realising that his tounge was starting to swell he went to the docter and they did an X-ray and found fully grown cockroaches in his tounge and they cut it open to take them out and they crawled into his stomach and he was alive through the whole thing and awake and my Home Room teacher had to give him Mouth to Mouth but unfortunantely he died.

I find this very foul and not the best thing to think about because it makes me feel like what it would be like for me to have them in my mouth and I really dont want to think about.

What do you think? I myself believe him becuase it is possible and now I am never going to lick an envelope again.

I don't know what kind of cockroaches the urban legend is talking about but as far as i know, cockroaches eggs are quite big and dark in color. Very distinguishable if you ever accidentally licked one off an envelope.. :D

Apparently there's another story too where the adhesive on some envelopes had been laced with cyanide, and people had licked them.
