Well, I suppose there might be a benefit to having just one crab. But, what would it be? I need some help to 'flesh out' this idea.

"I modulated my remarks when I found out they are campers who leave nothing on a trip to the outback. NOTHING. They pack EVERYTHING out."

I do that, too. However, rodents that want to move in--had a plague of deer mice once, and they are disease carriers--got the fast treatment.

I tried humane traps and got called away one time for a few days. Came home to find a barely living field mouse about to expire. He'd/she'd had no water for that long--since it got trapped. I felt so sorry for it I got it some water. It revived in about 20 minutes. I took it to a field about a mile away and released it. Since then, the old snap has been the one.

I had some friends (of friends) who were not happy to learn I was using inhumane mouse traps to discourage the voles who moved in with me. They volunteered to give me human traps for 'em. I modulated my remarks when I found out they are campers who leave nothing on a trip to the outback. NOTHING. They pack EVERYTHING out.

White Houseflies are the very elite of houseflies. But they still gotta be careful around a president with a good eye and quick swat.

In their 2007 Form 990, PETA states that they gave US $3,000,000 to the Foundation to Support Animal Activism (I think that's the name), which just happens to be located at 501 N. Front St., Norfolk, VA. That's also PETA's address. It was the largest single grant they made.

I assume the deceased animal in question was a common housefly. Houseflies do not want to be captured and released to the outside. They want to be inside your house. That's why they call them "houseflies" instead of "outdoorsflies".

The height of a housefly's ambition is to invade your house, feed on your decaying garbage, and transfer pathogens onto your furniture so you can transfer them into your own body, get sick, and die. In other words, the housefly wants to kill you. It wants to kill you so it can lay its eggs in your rotting flesh, thus giving its children (maggots) plenty of food and a nice warm place to stay until they're ready to perform their own home invasions.

Ayway, if there were no flyswatters, what the hell would redneck babies chew on while teething?

They really must sort out their PR - that sort of claptrap just plays into the hands of those who think they are a bunch of wankers.
I assume they don't use soap, antibiotics or any sort of cleanser that might kill bacteria...

But now People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, calling it an "execution," wants the commander-in-chief to show a little more compassion to even "the least sympathetic animals."
"Believe it or not, we've actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA's official response to the executive insect execution," a blog on the group's website explained. "In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."
The group has sent Obama a device that traps a fly so it can then be released outside.
"We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Freidrich explained.

PETA has some good points. But raising an objection because the President swats and kills a fly? That's just silly. And it dilutes the good messages and reforms they want to put forward. To the majority of people in the world it just makes them look like a bunch of idiots.

You might feel differently however.
