Bug-powered light-fitting

Here's a weird green invention that could be a God-send to anyone both plagued with flies and anxious to cut their electricity bills. It's a lamp with a shade full of holes. The insects are attracted to the light and fly through the holes but can't get out again. They then have a wild insect rave party till they die and their bodies fall through to a microbial fuel cell at the bottom of the lamp. They then perform a very noble and useful service by powering the lamp to attract more doomed flies to their sacrificial fate in endless environmentally friendly dance of death. Love it!
