I like the animal kingdom as much as next average hippy, but this, if you’ll pardon my language, is fucking ridiculous.
“We support compassion for the even the smallest animals,” says Bruce Friedrich, VP for Policy at PETA. “We support giving insects the benefit of the doubt.”
Friedrich says PETA supports “brushing flies away rather than killing them” and was disappointed that the President had gone ahead and squashed the pesky fly.
This afternoon PETA sent a Katcha Bug, a device which traps bugs and allows their safe release back into nature to the White House.
Will someone please explain to me how I should go about giving an insect, that’s larval stage feeds off rotting flesh, the benefit of the doubt? If anything the precision strike on said insect only proves my theory that President Obama is a member of secret ninja society and has already killed Bin Laden with his bare hands.
I can imagine a Catch and Release mosquito event for Cluttites to enjoy during their great July festival. And your language is forgiven inasmuch as it is dead on accurate.
