What_Would_Jimi_Do: and being 17 years ago, most people here wouldn't remember an infestation of this magnitude.


Life expectancy is pretty low in your state?

Anyway, like I was sayin', cicada is the fruit of the tree. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, cicada-kabobs, cicadas creole, cicada gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple cicadas, lemon cicadas, coconut cicadas, pepper cicadas, cicada soup, cicada stew, cicada salad, cicadas and potatoes, cicada burger, cicada sandwich. That- that's about it.

They got big orange eyes that can barely focus,
Some folks call them 17 year locust,
But that's the wrong data,
The name is cicada
And they're here now but they won't be here later.

They got 4 wings but ain't supposed to fly
Just come out the ground, have sex and die.
I can dig their ridge, I like their style,
They may go quick, but they go with a smile.

Check it out, Cicada serenade,
Check it out Cicada serenade,

There's Cicadas on the sidewalk, cicadas on the ground
Place look like a little tiny Jones Town,
I always hate to see a thing go to waste,
And was wondering how a cicada might taste.
Cicada, Potata, They sound the same,
To let em go to waste would be a crying shame.

So I got a couple of hundred of em, took em in side,
Got some catsup and ate em french fried.
I ate every one with out hesitat'in'
Next thing you know I'm hallucinatin'
Freaking out, Cicada serenade
Freaking out, Cicada serenade
I was out of my mind, my head was in a fog
Next thing you know I'm sick as a dog.
My friends came over they said "lets get high"
I said "no way" and they said "bye-bye"
I don't need no lovely, no reefer, no cocaine
Cause I still have cicadas buzzing round in my brain.
So eat your cicadas with every snack,
They can also help you say no to crack!
Bugs, not drugs.

HotWingAgenda: Those things have been underground soaking up ambient pesticides and other chemical waste for nearly twenty years.


Are they really absorbent? Vince Shlomi might try to sell them.

pyrotek85: Catlike Typist: 'Shrimp and lobster eat garbage and they are the insects of the ocean,' says cicada cook Jenna Jadin.

Yes, this is why I don't eat shrimp, and will likely never taste lobster.  You expect people to eat land arthropods when you can't even remove the exoskeleton?  Only on reality teevee....

Hah, I'm one of those weirdos who'll eat the shrimp tails. Doesn't bother me lol


Is this you?

White_Scarf_Syndrome: Columbia, Maryland.  Around...1986?  They came out of the ground.  I was 7.  We saw the larvae crawl out.  We saw them attach to the vinyl siding of the houses and hang there.  We had big white buckets and we would pick the empty shells of the larvae and collect them.  The newly hatched final molts (thats not a proper term I know) would cling on the tree, the houses, everything, looking moist and gross.  I think the next day we went on a rampage.  We simply plucked them, tore their wings off, all the while with that awful BBBBZBBZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ noise.  I could not do it now.  Until, there was a group of us, we had cleaned the tree grove clean of empty larvaie shells and live bugs, when we looked over at the ground.  It was a different buzz.  It was a big farking hornet, the size of which we had never seen. It was black and yellow and it said, "do not fark with me".  We realized that different buzz was the cicada, being carried away by a Cicada Killer.  I would like to try bugs to eat, but, i can't deal with those blood red eyes of the Cicadas.  Chop em up and put them on a pizza, then maybe.

Second in fright only to the Tarantula Killer I saw a few years back here in Texas.

CygnusDarius: First we ate the horses--we weren't riding anywhere, not with the castle surrounded. We couldn't feed them, so, fine, the horses. Then the cats--never liked cats, so, fine. I do like dogs--good animals, loyal--but we ate them. Then the rats. The night before you slipped through I thought my wife was dying--she couldn't speak anymore, she was so frail. And then you made it through the lines--slipped right through, with your little black sailboat, and your onions cicadas.

Yeah, I gotta wonder what will come first.  Farming bugs and turning them into foodstuff, or learning how to grow various proteins and turning them into foodstuff.  I also wonder who will be first to eat it, third world due to price, or first world due to price.

Me?  I'm eating all the beef and fish I can now before cows and salmon go extinct.
