Animal news: did I mention cicadas?

I did. But only in passing through the poisonous caterpillars. So, this, from Harper’s Weekly Review:

A White House press corps flight to the summit was delayed because one of the plane’s engines was filled with cicadas. “We apologize to our charter customers,” read a statement from Delta, “for this rarest of entomological delays.”

…”this rarest of entomological delays…” So sweet, so brilliant.
