    This is not a joke!

    And I suppose sport fishing is entirely out of the question!

    The only question is whether or not killing a mosquito feeding off your blood is inhumane or cruel to the poor insect. Does slapping a bloodsucker in front of a cop get you twelve months in the slammer? No matter how ridiculous this seems, the letter of the law seems to imply that possibility.

    UK's version of PETA certainly has ran amok.

    What makes your desire not to be bitten any more important than a mosquito's right to live? A typical human conceit.
