PETA sends Navy SEALs ‘Bin Laden Bite’ vegan chocolates for job well done

In case you were trapped in a deprivation chamber or you happened to be visiting family on Mars over the past day or two let me break the news to you, Osama bin Laden is dead—compliments of the U.S. SEAL team 6.

To honor the SEALs’ successful mission, animal rights organization and media manipulator extraordinaire (not saying that is a bad thing) PETA is doling out some delicious vegan chocolates to the brave men and women stationed at the elite group’s HQ in Virginia Beach.

Oh by the way, the vegan chocolates just happen to be “bin Laden Bites,” the bite size chocolates that allow hungry servicemen and women the opportunity to take a chomp out of terrorism, one bin Laden head at a time.

"PETA is sending these delicious vegan chocolates to the SEALs as a token of our gratitude," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "The actions of our brave men and women in uniform will help prevent future suffering—for both humans and animals."

According to PETA, not only did the maniacal leader of al Qaeda harm scores of humans he was also known to test weapons on dogs:

Not only did bin Laden order the murders of thousands of human beings—he also caused immeasurable animal suffering. 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.

Obviously the world did not lose a model citizen.

Nonetheless, if you would to purchase bin Laden bites for yourself, or for a service member (free shipping to the men and women in uniform) click here.
