Cicada 2011 Invasion: If You Can't Beat 'Em, Wear 'Em

Cicada NecklaceMillions of cicadas are busy mating here in Tennessee and all over the south right now. It's part of the "Brood XIX" invasion, which happens every 13 years.

I'm understandably not happy about the fact that these oversized flying creatures are absolutely everywhere right now, but I have found a way to make the infestation a little more enjoyable ...

I bought this cicada necklace on Etsy.

There was only one available, but don't fret, my fellow cicada-freaked friends. There's lots more cicada jewelry to wear and enjoy this spring.

Click through to see some of the most hilarious offerings out there!
