WASHINGTON "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.

"We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."

During an interview for CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly intruded on Obama's conversation with correspondent John Harwood.

"Get out of here," the president told the pesky insect. When it didn't, he waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked it dead.

"Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."

Friedrich said that PETA was pleased with Obama's voting record in the Senate on behalf of animal rights and noted that he has been outspoken against animal abuses.

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."

Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said the White House has no comment on the matter."




Let it be known that if you are a fly...and you land on me...you WILL DIE!!! :cuss:

That is all. :D

I don't like killing bugs. Not 'cause I give a shit about the bug, but simply 'cause I hate having splotches on the wall or spraying Raid all over the place. I got this cool bug vacuum for five bucks at an odd-lot store, it looks like a lightsaber with a long hollow tube and a vacuum built into the handle. You suck 'em into the tube, and go throw 'em outside (or use them for torture purposes, whatever floats your boat). It's great for beetles and flying stingers like bees and wasps...

As for PETA... they had good intentions originally, but sometimes they can be off the frigging wall.

EDIT: And, no, I haven't tried the vacuum tube for any other purposes, LOL...

I'm looking at the world through fly's eyes
Looking at the world through fly's eyes
Looking at the world through fly's eyes
And you can just buzz off

Well I think I'll buzz in the front door
Think I'll buzz around the back door screen
Think I'll buzz around your face
And then I'll land on the ceiling

Well I get up in the morning when the dew is on the doo
And I date a little maggot named Mary Lou
Some day we'll get married and we won't think twice
When our kids all look like dancing rice

I think I'll land on some horse manure
Think I'll land on the poop du jour
Think I'll land on a squashed possum --
And then I'll land on your potato salad
(Just washing up!)

Buzz buzz buzz buzz buzz buzz...

I'm looking at the world through fly's eyes
Looking at the world through fly's eyes
Looking at the world through fly's eyes
And you can just buzz off

Get that fly, get that fly!

I'm looking at the world through fly's eyes
Looking at the world through fly's eyes
Looking at the world through fly's eyes
And you can just buzz, you can just buzz, you can just buzz off!

C'mon, people. Where's the sympathy for the common fly, I ask? Remember, these poor little bastards have a tough life. I mean, they grow from maggot to fly and find out they have wings and can zip around, which is frigging awesome. In the midst of looping and buzzing and enjoying their acrobatics, they discover that the world is filled with their kind and female flies are a dime a dozen just itchin' to have the hot fly-sex with you. So you can fly through the air AND get a lot of fly-pussy. But then you find out your frigging lifespan is only about 28 days! I mean, really! You have the gift of flight, unlimited poontang, no job to go to or bills to pay and you can eat just about anything anywhere 'cause food is plentiful... but you've only got four weeks?!? Talk about a kick in the ass. And the the POTUS takes you out, man... the POTUS, fer crissake! You can't even get a little love from the Big Man? It's one thing to get crisped by some sadistic ten-year-old with a magnifying glass, but if you're buzzing around the POTUS you probably expect better treatment. Just saying, don't cast the first flyswatter until you've flown a mile in a fly's... er... shoes. (Okay, that analogy loses something, I admit...)

Helping their cause? ROFL You really are a fricken nut.

All their actions prove, is that they are along way from general mainstream thinking. They seem to be a group of lost souls that are looking for a cause. With my limited contact (some protest in Billings a few years ago over a chicken) they are a bunch of modern day hippy flower children who couldn't hold a job in regular society if their life depended on it. The only purpose they seem to have is to serve as a warning to others. With all the being said, I really don't care what they do, because they come off as nut jobs and not many people take them seriously.

First of all, I want to apologize for naming you. I thought you were the thread starter. I wasn't randomly calling you out.

Second, they do these things for the PR. That's how the game works. Like it or not, when you give them the attention like this, it helps them more than it hurts.
