Slight to Unorthodox The BBC has not commented on whether it intended to purposely slight un orthodox persons by describing a cockroach eating contest in Deerfield, FL, in which a man died from choking, as 'Unorthodox'. The suggestion appears to be that the unorthodox are cockroach eaters. It is not yet clear which religion may have been slighted, whether Christian unorthodox, Jewish unorthodox or some other unorthodox group. Possibly it is the biggest insult since the word unorthodox came into general use. Also, it is insulting to roaches, the most orthodox creatures on earth.
