On a story about a Texas teen who killed his mother and sister, and an audio recording of the 911 call:

On a story about a man dying shortly after winning a roach-eating contest in Florida, and a question asking if there is a prize big enough to spur you to eat an insect:

• A Mustang, maybe — Don Z.

• I’d eat bugs for a car. But first, grinding them up into paste would be preferable to crunching into one — Derek Z.
