Default Louie the Terminator

Go ahead, make my day......

For those non-Aussies, Louie the fly has been the "face" of Mortein flyspray in Australia since the 1950's.
When I saw this fella with his armour, it reminded me of Louie meets the Terminator. The flower is a kangaroo paw.

The cartoon below the photo exactly depicts my dilemma - which to admire - the fly or the flower! Very nice, vivid capture. Congrats!

We have Mortein "Louie the fly" TV ads here in South Africa too. He may be an Ozzie fly, but here he speaks with an American accent!
