Man Overdoses On Sauteed Cicadas

POSTED: 11:33 pm EDT May 16, 2004

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A man who cooked and ate nearly 30 cicadas sought medical treatment after suffering a strong allergic reaction to the sauteed insects.

The man showed up at a Bloomington clinic Thursday covered from head-to-toe in hives, and sheepishly told a doctor he'd caught and ate the cicadas after sauteing them in butter with crushed garlic and basil.

"He said they didn't taste too bad, but his wife didn't care for the aroma," said Dr. Al Ripani, the doctor who treated the man at Promptcare East.

:puke: :puke: There's not enough sauce or money in the world to get me to eat a freaking cicada!

And, they do compare them to shellfish, which I also don't eat. Never have, NEVER will. I don't eat any seafood or crustacean or water mammal.

Funny how we slaughter cows and eat them, but are grossed out by eating a little bug.

I had heard that locusts are edible and nutritious. They must be related to the cicadas somehow.

This is a good thing to know because our current "food chain" is so precarious and dependant on ready supplies of oil and electricity. So if were were to experience a significant power outage, massive natural disaster or unexpected invasion, we might want to know what alternatives there are to frozen dinners.
