Bite Osama bin Laden’s Head Off

Written by PETA | May 2, 2011

If you’re a little hungry after being up all night watching the news and chanting “USA! USA!” we’ve got the perfect snack for you: PETA’s “Bin Laden Bites” chocolates.

When we sent these delicious dairy-free chocolates to troops in Afghanistan a couple of years ago, they were great for cravings and target practice. Now we’re sending them to the Navy SEALs who took the terrorist down in order to show our appreciation. 

And one lucky PETA Files reader can have death by chocolate delivered right to his or her door. Just post a comment to this blog by Thursday, May 5th at 12 p.m., and a winner will be chosen at random on May 10th. If you don’t win, you can still order a supply of the star-spangled sweets—and if you have a current military address, we’ll throw in the shipping for free.

You can also show your patriotic pride with our “Proud to Be a Vegetarian American” bumper sticker,” just re-released to celebrate the occasion.

    Usually I’m a PETA fan but this one is going too far even for my sense of humour. And that’s a sense of humour that occasionally deploys lines like ‘kill a Holocaust denier for Christ’, not so delicate, I still find this one a bit too sick.

    I used to be a PETA member for a long time, but now will really have to re-think renewing. This glorification of murder is absurd. Bin Laden should have been treated as any other criminal-captured, have a trial and be sentenced. For PETA to condone and MAKE FUN OF murder (no matter how guilty he probably was)is not the America I grew up in. I am ashamed of PETA and a very sad vegetarian. Shame on PETA.

    I became a vegan because I believe we should be moving towards finding alternatives to the killing of all sentient beings, human or animal. Neither Bin Laden’s followers nor the US government shares this view. I do not believe that the US government had any intention of putting Bin Laden on trial, nor of looking at their own record of killing civilians. I believe that the US government has paid less and less attention to human rights in the wake of 9/11. It is wrong to reward killing.

    Are you bonkers PETA? This is wrong on so many levels. It is sick to celebrate the death of someone Bin Laden wasn’t given a trial, so much for American justice-is that a cause for celebration? How many Iraqi’s and Afghan’s have died as a result of this conflict. Why would you send people who kill other people chocolate? So, so misguided. I’ve been worried about your tactics for some time-this is the end of my support for you

  • Jay says:

    The most important attribute of these chocolates is that they’re dairy-free. To everyone who is offended on principle, I get it. Hard lesson in animal rights activism? Crossed arms and indignant stares have not, and never will, free animals from cruelty. Sending Peta-approved gifts to exhausted soldiers needing a smile? It’s OK. Every person more who quits milk chocolate is a good thing for animals. Animal rights progress is incremental. The animals do not have the luxury of waiting for our ideals to be met.

    Sad. You should follow the wisdom of another famous vegetarian….one you seem to agree with, but only certain parts of his ideals. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. – Mahatma Gandhi I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent. – Mahatma Gandhi

    it tastes disgusting

    Disappointed, very disappointed am I to see PETA take this road. This is not PETA’s road! Leave that patriotic rubbish to morons with guns and flags. To all the enthusiasts out there I suggest to wait and see, history will tell if the world will be a better place with the death of one (malevolent, I agree, but that’s not the point here) human being. As much for the “proud to be an american vegetarian”… I support PETA with a few euros of my well-earned money (not on this one though, count me out!), I’m proud to be a vegetarian, and glad NOT to be an American!

  • Joe T says:

    Mmm this makes me hungry!

  • kirsten says:

    Shame on PeTA for this campaign. You would think that people who fight animal cruelty would have enough of a heart to see that the death of a human being is nothing to celebrate. Promoting violence against people is counter-productive to the cause of animal rights. No reasonable person would take seriously this organization’s non-violence message when they celebrate violence and death.

  • Sonja says:

    Peta, I have tremendous respect for your fight against cruelty to animals but I do find this whole Bin Laden thing in bad taste and in no way beneficial to your cause!

  • I Love Max says:

    USA, USA, USA!!!! Bin Laden is dead!

  • LaraAmber says:

    Mmmm… Chocolate, and liberty and justice for all!

  • guy says:

    I am disgusted that an organisation such as this is promoting violence and celebrating the death of a human being.

  • Anna Fanene says:

    I normally support Peta in their fight against animal cruelty. But I do not support this disgusting display of total lack of respect for a human being. Osama Bin Laden has paid and will keep on paying for the pain and suffering he has inflicted on so many people. The fact still remains he has young children and family who will be suffering as well at this very moment. How can anyone rejoice in anyone elses death and suffering no matter how evil their actions have been. To the people who run Peta I have great doubts about your motivations and sincerity for the welfare and wellbeing of animals at this very moment. I will be looking for another animal support group to support.

  • Leathur says:

    I am so glad to see Peta recognising that,yes we ARE at war,a war We did NOT start.And I am glad Peta is on the good side,that of Western Civilisation vs terror.We must NAME the enemy to defeat the enemy.Now lets get the rest of the Al Qaeda operatives.Remember,that idiology is not kind to animals or females either….

  • msini says:

    I think PETA should watch Earthlings again. How can promote ethical treatment of animals if we promote violence against human beings as well. Your slipping up PETA. I expect a higher level of ethics and sincerity in your efforts.

  • Crystal says:

    Thanks for sending these to the troops!

  • Heathie says:

    Mmm! Sounds delicious(:

  • Jackie says:

    No thanks, I’m afraid the chocolate Bin Laden will try to start a jihad in my digestive system. 😛

  • deb kay says:

    love peta…bet i would love ur bin laden bits!

  • Susan Hoppler says:

    GO PETA! Very cool that you sent these to military personnel in Afghanistan. What’s wrong with a little levity? I support you 1000%!!!!!!
