From the ‘building a better fly-swatter’ files. The Wall Street Journal today features an article about an entrepreneur who really hates flies. From the story:

. . . when it comes to winged invaders, Mr. Maggiore is no peacenik: He is the creator of a plastic, pump-action shotgun that blasts pests with table salt—he calls it the Bug-a-Salt. While flies are his personal bugaboo, he says the weapon is lethal against mosquitoes, spiders and all sorts of irksome insects.

Hmmm, I think a better name might have been Salt-a-Bug but maybe that’s too culinary sounding.

Warning, the author of this news story had a real good time employing puns of all sorts. It must have been a slow Sunday for him.
