No, really. I was googling when the average cicada just DIES already, so that I could anticipate the blessed day, but what I found instead were websites instructing me to just eat them. I even found a newspaper article reporting how popular they were, as an snack, in 2007. Now, that's revenge. I wondered what they tasted like.
And, of course, my second thought was, "I wonder if anyone on Chowhound has ever eaten a cicada? And do they have a recipe?"
