Terrorist threat thwarted by cupcakes

Anarchy in the UK cupcakes
I tweeted about this ludicrous, but apparently true, story this morning and have had lots of feedback – so here’s the lowdown. British intelligence officers recently managed to scupper the launch of the first English language website to be set up by an affiliate of terrorist organisation al-Qaida.

The jihadist site, known as Inspire, was crippled courtesy of a pdf file full of cupcake recipes which managed to garble the website’s existing instructions on how to “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom”.

Traditionally, the art of baking minature cakes hasn’t been widely used as a weapon in the war on terror, but if it works then I’m all for it.
