Cicadas are edible

27 Jun

Yahoo! tells me cicadas are not only going to be abundant this summer, but they are going to serve as an afternoon snack for people too lazy to go to the store and get a real snack like food that’s not a bug-eyed red annoying buzzing monstrous insect. My rule: if the snack woke me up at night for the wrong reasons, it’s going off the menu. I don’t care what kind of delicious treat cicadas make, after all of these years of irritating me – I’m not giving them the satisfaction of knowing they satiated my appetite.

    Something tells me neither party would feel entirely satisfied, if you decided to swallow a cicada.

    I know there are people who consider cicadas and grasshoppers, even ants, a delicacy, but I am not one of them. Yuck!
