Cupcakes Not Bombs! Spies Use Cupcake Recipes To Disable Jihadist Web Site!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The cyber-warfare operation was launched by MI6 and GCHQ in an attempt to disrupt efforts by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsular to recruit `lone-wolf` terrorists with a new English-language magazine, the Daily Telegraph understands.


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"

This is the most ambitious cyber attack since Israel devastated Iran`s nuclear program with the Stuxnet worm.

OK, I`m being melodramatic, but this is certainly the most amusing cyber attack in recent history. Hopefully the wannabe terrorists will be able to decipher the garbled code and read the cupcake recipes. Who knows it may change their career paths from terrorism to masters of the culinary arts.

This crazy world needs cupcakes a hell of a lot more than it needs pipe bombs. There most be a few mothers breathing a sigh of relief that there slacker Muslim sons will be baking cupcakes in the kitchen instead of building bombs in the garage.
