made in hawaii

This is one of my most prized possessions. I bought last summer during a trip to Hawaii. It's the perfect souvenir, but I can attest that it is also a very efficient artefact to kill flies, mosquitoes and any undesirable flying "object". The design is pretty ingenuous, just a flip-flop (or slipper, or sandal, depending on where you live), attached to a flexible wand. You can find one here.
It sure adds a whole new dimension to the country-of-origin discussion that I raise in the previous post. If when talking about France, we're reminded of romance, wine and perfume, now when talking about Hawaii, besides thinking about surf, aloha shirts, and Elvis, we can now think about...the "fly swattah".
