Sunday supervillainy - Save Louie the Fly!

Oh noes! Mortein is threatening to kill Louie the Fly once and for all, and as part of its evil, unscrupulous ... um, beware of defamation actions ... capitalist promotional activities is demanding that you vote to save his life.

Louie the Fly is, perhaps, not a supervillain, strictly speaking, but he's an Australian icon. This can't be allowed to happen!

If they don't want Louie any more, I hope they're willing to release him from any copyright control, so that he can live on as the People's Pest, a public menace that the public are free to depict and celebrate in whatever way they might fancy.
