I guess if the eating starts with the head, it hurts for a shorter time, and the other flys are inclined to take more risks.  Assuming they are that smart of course.

On the other hand they take a lot of risks around humans, so apparently getting smashed flat is expected to hurt even less.  Yuk and yuk.
