As scientists have long warned, constant overuse of insecticides and pesticides have finally created a "super fly" that is totally resistant to any attempts to eradicate them.

"We have known for decades that this was going to happen", said Professor Ralph Shingles of Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. "Every time we kill flies with pesticides some of them escape thus creating a race of 'super flies' that are resistant to everything. And the pathogens these flies possess are also resistant to everything. Thus, we are endangering humanity and risk the fate of these creatures taking over!"

Prof Shingles displayed a magnified fly which appeared to be smiling and wearing very cool sunglasses though the professor said the flies have simply developed a naturally protective eye covering that gives the appearance of sunglasses. He explained that these flies are intelligent, fearless and virtually indestructible.

"They have become smart enough to avoid flypaper and other human traps." The professor continued. If you see one in your kitchen I suggest you throw away any food stuffs that were on the counter and hope the fly follows you and the foods out of the house.

There have so far been no known deaths attributed to the mutant flies though professor Shingles says it's only a matter of time.

"These flies will soon destroy the world and there is nothing we can do about it", professor Shingles said with an air of resignation.

Other scientists were not as pessimistic as professor Shingles. "It's just a funny looking fly. Tell Shingles to smoke a dube and chill out", said Yale University researcher Gene Higgins.
