Taking a Bite Out of Bin Laden

PETA is offering a way of beheading Osama Bin Laden.
When PETA discovered that the troops in Afghanistan loved chocolate, they decided to send some dairy-free chocolates that takes the bite right out of Bin Laden.

"These delicious dark chocolate 'bin Laden Bites' give a whole new meaning to the adage 'Revenge is sweet,'" says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "Our troops deserve a chuckle, and PETA's vegan chocolates will give them that as well."

The  PETA chocolates are dairy-free, and anyone, including lactose-intolerant soldiers, can eat them.
There is a secondary motivation for these unique chocolates:

PETA has its own issues with bin Laden. One of his sons wrote a memoir in which he revealed that his father gassed the younger bin Laden's two dogs in a chemical-warfare experiment. Also, countless animals suffered and died of starvation and dehydration when their guardians were killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center, leaving the animals without care.
"Many more animals suffered and died from exposure to toxic fumes and from other causes when apartments in the ‘hot zone' were sealed off for many days with dogs, cats, companion rats and mice, guinea pigs, gerbils, rabbits, and fish remaining inside. In memory of them all, PETA is arranging to have extra chocolates made to be sold stateside"
