30. Whats really this person is using Cicada as an insult.
Edited on Sat Feb-09-08 03:54 AM by Mother Of Four
See...Cicada's are unique and beautiful insects that have an incredible life span. The noise they make is called singing, and
"Cicadas do not bite or sting, are benign to humans, and are not considered a pest."

They are useful as well, in many cultures they are used as food and in China they are still used as medicine.

In 2004 the word Cicada was the word of the year for Websters.

Under difficult odds the Cicada fights its way up from undergroud and actually has to make a slit in bark to lay its eggs.

I had to respond to this, especially since this poster has a habit of attempting to insult others by the use of this word when obviously they have no real clue to what they are saying.

Sorry...but "ElsewheresDaughter" should try and use that word "Elsewhere"

Maybe she should read up on it eh?

PSSST....I'm still supporting Edwards, so um...ED...go me an "Obama Cicada"
