    This week in cheap Chinese crap: Fly Swatters.
    Advertisements [?]I needed a fly swatter for the first time in my life so I went the grocery store to get one. It only cost me $1.49, I could tell it was crap, but really how bad could it be?

    Here's how bad. On the first swat it shattered into about a dozen pieces. And yes, I missed the fly. Call me crazy, but shouldn't a fly swatter last more than one swat?

    Thank you China for living up to your reputation for making horrible products for the entire world to consume.

    13. Just take one of theirs off the rack, with the tags and stickers on it ...



    and demonstrate before their very eyes what kind of useless crap they sell.

    11. My parents had a plastic fly swatter with a wire handle that lasted my entire childhood.
    The thing is, I bet that was just as cheap to make as the new all-plastic version that breaks after one use.

    I think I'm going to make my own since I really don't have a clue where to buy a good fly swatter

    9. My favorite way to round up flies: A cup of soapy water...
    Move the cup UNDER the fly. Flies drop a few inches before they take off.

    The soap wets their wings and they can't fly.

    Flush the cup when your done. No muss - no fuss.

    It's another living being. What gives you the right to murder it? (Unless it's in the womb of course.)

    It's ok to kill fly's. We don't eat them (intentionally).

    I bought a 2-pack for $1.88 at Wal-Mart. They have survived several fly swats and cat attacks.

    I pronounce them quality devices.

    Maybe the DUmmie should visit Wal-Mart.

    When Obama is President, all fly swatters will be made in the US, and will kill flies on command. They will also be given out by the government, and charged to the filthy rich.

    Of course, there's also a chance that during an Obama administration there will be no flies or bugs of any kind.

    I have a chinese fly swatter, but unfortunately I only have american flies.
