    The movie that you are talking about with the giant grasshoppers. It is called The Beginning of the End. It has been immortalized by MST3K.

    It was directed by Bert I. Gordon and was set in Illinois and ends with Chicago nearly getting nuked. But the brillant scientist, played by Peter Graves saves the day by playing Grasshopper mating songs. This causes all the groppers to drown in Lake Michigan.

    I remember this movie as a child as well. At the time, I was astonished that it was set in Illinois, with names of towns that I grew up near. Of course, I couldn’t figure out where they were getting shots of mountains, and why there wasn’t nearly enough corn fields.

    Could you post a link to the “shunning” app? I’ve listened to the bit twice, and I still can’t quite hear/understand what the caller (Ms Heathers?) says.

    Ed – It’s a “Charlie The Unicorn” sound board that can be found on the Android Marketplace. Just do a search for “Charlie the Unicorn” and you should be golden.

    Sorry iPhone users, no clue to if there is one for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰
