It's no secret that there are a lot of people out there who want to do harm to the United States.  A lot of those people are on the World Wide Web Of How To Do Harm To The United States From The Comfort Of Your Own Home.  But there are also people like Britains M16 security service who love to use tactics that confuse both terrorists AND Wile E. Coyote to beat them at their own game!

An al-Qaida website that had bomb-making recipes was hacked into by the Brits and instead of finding out how to make things go boom, terrorists found instead recipes for things that make people go "Yum"!  The recipes for mojito and rocky road cupcakes were courtesy of none other than Ellen DeGeneres! 

There was no word from Ellen on what she thought about being used to fight evil, but I'll bet she got a big kick out of it!

So, in the interest of world peace, make cupcakes today.  There's no telling what nefarious plot you might defuse with a sweet, delicious cupcake!
