I know an Obama who swatted a fly.
He saw the fly, and made the fly die.
I like that guy!

Well, "breaking" has more than one meaning. After hearing this news, you will break your head, the wall, or both.

I was somewhat distressed that PETA objected to the killing of the fly. Don't they know that flies aren't animals?

Flies are animals, but they're r-strategists (in summary: they produce large numbers of offspring which they don't nurture, and most of which typically don't survive to adulthood). It's a bit like blasting one of those spindly little guard droids from "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace".

Is that to the tune of "There Was an Old Lady..."?

As soon as I heard this on the rado, I was like, someone needs to do a version of the "Card crusher" parodying this.

That doesn't really make sense, though, because the fly's not valuable to the interviewer.
