Say What You Want, But The Brit Spies Have A Great Sense Of Humor

When followers [of al-Qaeda] 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.

Reminds FLG of the apocryphal story how the Brits, upon discovering an entirely wooden decoy German airfield, sent a plane in to drop a wooden bomb.
