It’s late. We have a grandchild that could be movin’ on out of her mama’s womb any minute and I need to be sleeping. However, this just came across the cyber headlines:
PETA wishes Obama hadn’t swatted that fly
WASHINGTON (AP) — The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he’s bedeviled by a fly in the White House.
PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside…Still, “swatting a fly on TV indicates he’s not perfect,” Friedrich said, “and we’re happy to say that we wish he hadn’t.”
I’m wild about critters. If I can I’ll encourage a spider to just leave, or figure it will catch the loose flies. So, do we call PETA?
A note to PETA: You have much more important work to do. They’ll make more flies that will land in your neighbor’s dog crap, then visit your plate of tofu and deposit miniscule poop all over that fine dish of soybean curd. Yum.
