    That would work if I didn't step on one everytime I walked in the grass. Remember, I'm out in the country..that means THOUSANDS to MILLIONS of them.

    Yeah, great for having a 'cook-out'. I'm not sure about that animals getting sick thing, I heard you can cook cicadas and they taste like asparagus.

    Oh yeah, the news told us to be on very high alert when having pets (namely dogs) outside. They WILL get sick from the bugs.

    And I guess people know they taste like wlanuts because some guy was actually disturbed enough to cook one up.

    The ones coming soon are different though, they have red eyes, big brown wings, and smell really badly. They also make a noise that sounds like screaming.

    I'd never be able to sleep if I heard the sounds of what seemed like people screaming in my back yard.

    Ick.

    *skewers with a fork*

    Bugs don't bother me much. My only peeve is insects that do not serve a purpose on this earth. Like mosquitos for instance. And this garden-munching cicada bugs.

    And FYI Neil, spiders aren't bugs. They're not insects at all, they're arachnids. :p
