Cicadas are dangerous to your children!

Yes, it’s true. Pediatricians are warning parents about the deadly insects!

Several children fell off bikes, Baker said. “We had a concussion, a 9-year-old who was fleeing a cicada on her bicycle and fell off,” he said.

Another child hit his head on a brick wall while he was running away from one of the insects.

“We had a stab wound to the arm from a kid who was trying to kill a cicada on the arm of another child but unfortunately he was using a knife,” Baker added._

“Another kid tried to kick one under a lawn mower and cut his foot, and we saw a crush injury to the hand when a kid tried to put a cicada under the wheels of a moving car.”

Hmmm. Sounds like the real danger is paranoid/murderous kids. A knife? Come on, that kid was obviously trying to kill the other one using a cicada as a ruse. What is Looney Tunes teaching our kids!?
