No One Wins When Cicadas Attack

By Kevin Eck 

A KSNT reporter tried to finish her standup from the top of some sort of military vehicle, but the cicadas keep reminding her they haven’t been around for about 17 years and wanted to say hello!

TVSpy has to admit we held off on posting this over our feelings of schadenfreude. That and watching Topeka NBC affiliate reporter Katya Leick throw a hissy fit made us feel sad for the photographer.


The station reports, “After a 17-year slumber, the sight and sounds of the creepy crawly cicada is back. It has been more than a decade, and these creatures have awakened from their deep beauty sleep.”

The last time these noisy bugs were out, Bill Clinton was president, and “Titanic” won the award for best Academy Picture.
