They are smart ass, you know. They pick up a day of the year they know there will be no emergency.

I don't mean to be rude, but that's probably not sufficient ground for the Swiss Parliament to overturn its decision.

As another country bans boiling live lobsters, some scientists wonder why
the swiss need to stun the lobster first, so maybe thwack it with a baseball bat. That's so much better than just boiling it alive

I would put this in the category of stupid laws, although one unlikely to be enforced against home cooks. I boil/steam them to death, which seems to be pretty quick and fairly quiet. If the tasty bugs possessed vocal chords I might have considered alternatives.
