Where I live, the cicadas have emerged and are mating like crazy. There are a lot of empty shells. But also many of these creatures have passed on. The fat,winged things'carcasses carpet my backyard.

I put a dead one in a TT and I'm ready to perform off the cuff -- within the boundaries of good taste. [hee, hee] Pockets, purses, bags of potato chips. My one line is, "Geez, these things are everywhere." Sure, women scream. Let 'em.

That would be a great restaurant trick. Stick your thumb in the customer's mashed potatoes and produce a cicada. Not only a great effect, but when the customers run out of the restaurant you can sit down and enjoy a free meal. Have I mentioned I don't work much? Smile

I'm finding now that you can put a live cicada in your TT -- and it's very compliant. These critters are so doped up after mating, they'll just lie in your TT till you reach in gently pull it out.

Even after that, they're still so sleepy [or need Last Rites] that you can do the David Blaine [Lubor Fiedler?] "MAKE THE CICADA COME BACK TO LIFE trick. They'll buzz and flap.

And after that, you can do an impromptu "Miser's Dream" with them.

And how about this mental effect: go in your neighbor's backyard and have them point to anyone. They pick it up and see a little tear in the wing. You take out your wallet and REVEAL A CORNER TEAR that matches the VERY SAME WING!
