Cicada Ringtones?

Okay, what brilliant person thought that one up? My adsense ad (see to the right) is currently advertising cicada ringtones. First of all, I refuse to pay for another ringtone even were my current ringtone to play the Beverly Hillbillies theme song. Sorry, I'm not adding yet another feature for a small fee. And why I ask, would I want to hear even more cicadas?

Today, we were stopped in town by the slowest moving train. We turned off the car to save gas, rolled down the windows, and had to throw out cicadas that kept flying in the window. At least they were the lucky ones. Moments earlier, several had smashed themselves on the windshield leaving white smears as I hurtled down the highway . That reminds me of a cicada joke: What is the last thing that goes through a cicada's mind as it hits your windshield? Its butt.

P.S. Arg! And so I publish this post and the adsense ad is now something else. Well, it did advertise cicada ringtones. Really.

Glad to know I'm not the only one frustrated by those flying missiles. I keep finding them in the office, and have to fend them off as I go to/from my car in the afternoons. Our parking lot looks like a zillion cicadas committed mass-suicide, all their little carcasses lying about.
