Swat it

We’ve been getting pretty deep on here in the last few posts. I missed some of the more ridiculous things that happen in the world that we usually post about. Admittedly there have been some hilariously insane commentators in the posts but it’s nothing like, oh, I don’t know:

PETA getting mad at Obama for swatting a fly.

If you ever start thinking that maybe the world is boiling down to just politics and that we’re splitting down party lines everywhere never forget PETA, they’re always around to make sure that you remember terrible PR campaigns and general craziness.

Like this commercial that was, for obvious reasons, banned:


Just sayin’.

    I’m a vegan who can’t stand PETA. I think that in general, they go too far and hurt their own message by making people think they’re nuts (like being upset that Obama killed a fly).

    But I do kind of like that commercial.

    Some hackers invaded the O.U.S. computer system and sent the A.P. some message about fly catching Obama being lame. I imagine you guys are at the top of the list of suspects.

  3. Scott says:


    The line that kills me is when the PETA guy is happy to call out Obama. Like it’s wins them prize or something.

  4. Vincent says:


    I saw this last night and my first thought was “and people are mad at me for being unfair to Obama??”

    I love that PETA sent him a human trap so he could take the flies outside instead.
