    Default Fizzat!

    I don't know if ya'll have seen these, but Fizzat! is a device that looks like a Badminton Racquet, but in reality is a bug killer. The first time I saw one, I thought it was a joke. Little did I know...
    Fizzat! is an electric portable bug zapper. It takes two AA batteries, and kicks the 3 volts up to about 2,400. When you swat a bug, the noise is roughly Fizzat!, hence the name. Around here there is a small chain of stores called Ocean State Job Lot that sells them They cost $5. I now have two of them, and they are great. If you see them for sale, I highly recommend that you buy one. Killing bugs can be fun!

    My son-in-law picked one up and thought it was a toy and touched the screen and got the s**t shocked out of him.
