Got Flies?

Just when we thought we might have seen everything in the "Getting Ready For the Games" department, a story like this comes along.  It seems there is a gentleman in Beijing who is doing his part to clean up the city for the Olympics by buying flies.  He hangs out near the entrance to a city park and pays 2 yuan (about a quarter) to anyone who brings him a dead fly.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, "Silly Season" is in full swing and we still have 490 days to go before the opening ceremonies.
