bug racket (electrified)

Ahhh, who here doesn't have fond memories of torturing creepy bugs as children? Be it tennis rackets at dusk, launching those vicious lightning bugs into a smoldering arc of demise or the lethal funk of sun-toasted exoskeleton by way of your father's magnifying glass. Now, step up your arsenal with a rechargeable electrified tennis-racket — "a very popular tool in tropical countries." A flip of the switch electrifies the inner mesh, zapping any unfortunate little brother, pledge bug it comes in contact with. Is it safe for little Billy? Sure, "just don't touch inside the protective mesh" ok junior? So slip in your lip plate, and let's go a huntin'...unless you live in Australia where they are illegal.
