British Gov. Hacks al-Qaeda Website, Replaces Bomb Making How-To w/ Cupcake Recipe

June 3, 2011


Your wife is gonna be PISSED when she finds out you blew up the sewing machine.

The British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) were able to hack an al-Qaeda website showing followers how to make homemade bombs, and replaced the instructions with recipes for "The Best Cupcakes in America". I'm a sucker for red velvet!

When followers tried to download the 67-page colour magazine, instead of instructions about how to "Make a bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom" by "The AQ Chef" they were greeted with garbled computer code.

The code, which had been inserted into the original magazine by the British intelligence hackers, was actually a web page of recipes for "The Best Cupcakes in America" published by the Ellen DeGeneres chat show.

It included a recipe for the Mojito Cupcake - "made of white rum cake and draped in vanilla buttercream"- and the Rocky Road Cupcake - "warning: sugar rush ahead!"

Be honest -- who else is craving cupcakes now? Ha -- everyone. Oh -- except one dude in the back. "I'm on a diet, I can only eat muffins." *lifting shirt to reveal muffin-top* COME GETCHA SOME! *truffle shuffle*

Thanks to Christine, who claims to have once had a cupcake with a Snickers bar baked inside. WOW, could I be any more jealous?! SPOILER: Only if it had sprinkles.
