Camp Kamanawanalaya, NY - Following the usual orgiastic "summer of love", the last remaining 15-year Cicada finished off one final cigarette and then perished with a smile on his face this week.
The elusive 15-year Cicada (a happy-go-lucky cross between the 13-year and the 17-year varieties) was discovered only a few weeks ago when a group of counselors closing up summer camp found the horde of insects mating in a broom closet.
'Dirk', as he was known, spent his last few days chirping along to music. He was particularly fond of the Rolling Stones. Looking like a guy who intends to stay at the party all night even after all of the other guests have left, he departed this world suddenly and without a peep.
Observers report that he really did appear peaceful when he finally passed.
