PETA pronounces on Obama fly-swat

El Prez not Buddha, animal huggers confirm

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Animal rights outfit PETA has finally pronounced on the matter of Barack Obama's shock fly-swat, following considerable press pressure for clarification if the savage act of executive violence merited comparison with the Armenian Genocide.

Well, the result disappointingly lacks an international poster campaign featuring a naked Alicia Silverstone sprawled under the slogan "Hands off my flies, Mr President". PETA's Alisa Mullins simply says of El Prez: "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."

To help Obama attain spiritual enlightenment, Mullins adds that she's sending him a "handy-dandy bug catcher", the better to tackle "future insect incidents". ®
