Musings on a Bored Persons Mind


I was watching the Colbert Report earlier tonight and was impressed with what I saw. PETA finally out did itself. Earlier this week Pres. Obama killed a fly during, before, or after an interview of some sort. So...PETA issued some statement condemning Pres. Obama's swatting of the fly. Are you serious!? Of all the things to be upset about and worked up over.

Not the first nor the last time a fly will be swatted. Flies would be wise to communicate this to their young. Humans are the worst predators little flies will face. Anyone remember that Mickey Mouse cartoon where he gets seven with one stroke of the flyswatter and the villagers think he means giants, or was it dragons?

We had a good laugh about it here at the office.

Does this mean I have to quit hitting wood bees half way across the yard with a badminton racket?

Hey chuckabee -

PETA is ridiculous. Before this fly incident, I was actually wondering to myself what PETA members do when they see road kill. Some day, will there be a call for the end of motorized transportation considering it results in the deaths of so many innocent armadillos?

I bet they'll get to it sometime soon if they haven't already.
