My husband's idea of a fly swatter


Perhaps it's an improvement on the first model.

I miss the soup can.

jmeped said...

That's a man for you. Tools. And why did he have to use the nice dress shoe?

Bostick said...

it is obvious that the earpiece on the shoe phone came off and it had to be glued back on.

Bostick said...

Is that tumbled marble? it looks great. I love that stuff. It looks like the Jerusalem variety high end shit.

Dean said...

Tell him that flyswatters work better if they have holes in them. The holes mess up the fly's "Holy Fuck!" collision detection system.

Just drill a bunch of holes in the sole of that there uncomfortable-looking shoe and it will become a much more efficient and manly fly-murdering apparatus.

I find it very disturbing.

But I did click on the link in the sidebar, the one which has the photograph of you sitting on the chair.

That was not disturbing at all.

Better attahced to whatever that tool is called than having him stomp flies all over the house.

Roxi said...

well.. you cant say hes not inventive..

sxKitten said...

It is an improvement - he's got the larger flat surface available for swatting now.

The heavier clamp, though, that's just gonna slow him down. I see a V3.0 in the near future.

Vince said...

Cool idea! After you swat the fly, you can keep it in the shoe. Kinda like mulch.

Erin O'Brien said...

Eric: You're right, baby. It is a good thing.

Toby: I know. Denny has it.

Jm: Tools. Must have something to do with their dicks.

Bostick: Can I call you on your shoe? And the flooring? I effing wish! It is self-stick linoleum tiles.

Dean: I'll forward the information. He'll be delighted. Give him a chance to use the drill press.

Winters: I am, of course, imagining your british accent as you say name. How far is it from Cleveland to Paris, anyway?

BV: So true. But you'd be surprised how many he got via the stomp method.

Roxi: Oh yes I can.

Sxk: It aint the clamp that slows him down, baby.

Vince: Or just shake the dead buggers from the shoe onto your salad instead of croutons.

WOW! I'm impressed. Now that's a Man's man invention. I'm a rolled up newspaper kind of guy myself.

~d said...

It almost looks like it could be used as a GSJV. For someone with an enormous twat.
I just wanted to say those four letters.
(smile!)

gretchenhr said...

That is impressive! And inventive. But does he have to go and use a dress shoe for it? Why not an old tennis shoe or flip flop?

Brookelina said...

Do you have this in espresso? Size 7?

Zen Wizard said...

Possibly the greatest mind of his generation.

I am so glad he's on OUR SIDE. I shudder to think what would happen if he fell into the hands of the Enemies of Freedom.

josh williams said...

A swatter and the odor to lure them, brilliant!

Loudlush said...

Very impressive fella you've got there. Does the shoe change with his outfits? The whole accessory matching thing right down to a fly-swat is extremely natty.

Richard said...

Hell, that looks like something that I would use.

Erin O'Brien said...

Dr. Gno: And do you have a stack of Sports Illustrated in the bathroom?

~d: All I can say is that I hope the words "enormous twat" are never used in conjunction with my name.

Gretch: Perhaps because we only have the best flies here at our home. The very best flies do not succumb to a lowly flip flop.

Brooke: Let me check. If not, may I show you the cafe au lait?

Zen: Heavens! You're right! It never even occured to me. Nonetheless, I'll make sure to monitor his movements carefully and report any suspicious behaviour to The Authorities. I hear Gitmo's nice this time of year.

JW: I am at once thankful that there is no "scratch-n-sniff" feature on blogger. And the more I think of it, the more thankful I become.

Lush: Natty. You said natty. I don't know if I've ever heard anyone say natty. Can I come over and play?

Richard: Would you like to borrow it? He's done killed all the flies here anyway.

Loudlush said...

Hell yeah, come on over. Natty is a much loved word in the Lexicon of Lush.

jamwall said...

that's, by far, the greatest flyswatter i've seen.
