Default Harbor Freight Impulse Buy--ZAP!

During my last expedition to HF I happened across this beauty and am happy to say it is entirely worth the $3.99 I paid for it! (Yes, I'm going to make you have to look at the picture to see what I'm talking about!). It works best by trapping the little buggers against a window, then SNAP! as they try to fly away--very satisfying! I should probably wear eye and ear protection when I use it--it is that loud and bright! I'm still looking for a volunteer to touch the grid, though...

That's what that thing is for?

When I saw it in the store, a rather manly looking female was holding it up close to her face. I just assumed it's only function was to remove facial hair.

It's a handheld bug zapper for terminating flying insects with extreme prejudice.
I have one too and it works quite well.

Well let's see, maybe Paris Hilton would fall for that one. Maybe leave one in the trailer rig they were travelling in. She sure didn't have a clue about steel pots in a microwave.
