Dead Fly Art

Swedish photographer Magnus Muhr makes great cartoons from dead flies placed strategically on paper. As you can see, the result looks like an acid-induced reenvisioning of The Far Side, only without any actual punchlines.

I wonder what PETA would say about this "art." If they were enraged over president Obama's fly swat heard round the world, how could they be anything but downright bloodthirsty when they see this? What do you think, _flossers? Cruel abuse of an innocent creature or hilarious artwork using an overabundant pest?
