The Ethical Treatment of Flies

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has protested President Obama's killing of a defenseless fly during the filming of a recent television interview.

I'm all for the ethical treatment of animals, so long as it doesn't lead to enforced vegetarianism.

But a fly is a fly which is by definition a dirty, disease-carrying insect.

That's why there is no such organization as People for the Ethical Treatment of Flies, which is good, since the ancronym would be unpronounceable.
