О преимуществах беспозвоночных

Набоков - интервьюирующей его журналистке Life:
Butterflies are like grapes in that some years are much better for them than others. [...] It's a pitty to have to kill them - I despise bullfighting, subscribe to an antivivisection journal and don't like hunting or hunters - but it's done very simply and quickly by pinching their thoraxes. ( отсюда )
Like grapes? Да, бескосточкового сорта, иначе при сдавливании из ягоды вылетала бы грудина.
