I lived in Columbia for a little over a year. I always knew those Obama lovers were weird.

Cicadas were the main ingredient in an ice cream that sold out within hours of its
June 1 debut at Sparky's Homemade Ice Cream in Columbia, Mo. The base ice cream
is brown sugar and butter flavor.

COLUMBIA, Mo. A public health official in central Missouri has asked an ice cream shop to cool it with the cicada ice cream, even though customers apparently can't get enough of it.

Sparky's Homemade Ice Cream in Columbia, Mo., sold out of its only batch of the insect-filled dessert within hours of its June 1 debut.

The Columbia Missourian says employees collected the cicadas in their backyards and removed most of the dead bugs' wings. They then boiled the bugs and covered them in brown sugar and milk chocolate. The base ice cream is brown sugar and butter flavor.

Gerry Worley, an environmental health chief with the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health, says the agency's food code "doesn't directly address cicadas" and that he has advised against their use as an ingredient.

College town (University of Missouri is there). The attitude kinda drove me nuts. I really am not fond of college towns.
