Dear Professor Poppy,
Please tell me, what is a cicada?
I see you have eaten a few this week, and I am interested in purchasing some.
I have researched extensively to answer your question.
Mr and Mrs Cicada are bugs that live outside your house. They live in tropical areas around the world, and we have lots in New Zealand and Australia. The males are very noisy, and spend all their days and nights making a lot of noise, trying to find a girlfriend. That is because they are not smart enough to use the internet, and have a single cicada cafe to find love.
They only come out in the summer, and in the winter months they live underground eating the roots of plants. They do not bite or sting beans or pussycats, but if you swallow one whole they rattle and make noise in your tummy. They make great presents for your bean, especially at 2am.

Have a great weekend everycat, bean and cicada.
