Strangely, not Iowahawk or Scrappleface

No, “PETA wishes Obama hadn’t swatted that fly”.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.
“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.”

Additionally, they recommend the President curtail all overnight excursions from the White House between August and November, so that he doesn’t accidentally step on insects of sprouting seeds in the night while, say, taking in a Broadway show[1].

[1] Point of clarification: the joke points out a silly recommendation that PETA might offer, and is not to diminish anyone’s pursuit of holiness as such. If a Buddhist reader wishes to engage in a positive discussion about life, the universe, and everything, then bring it on, please.
