Trotsky Cookies Hoax Is Delicious

Reports are circulating that a group of bandits scaled the walls of Leon Trotsky's former home in Mexico City and stole his ashes, which they proceeded to bake into delicious looking chocolate cookies dotted with M&Ms. The cookies were then, allegedly, sent out to members of the media, Trotskyists and anarchists around the world. Apparently, some anarchists are still pretty sore at Trotsky for his role in the suppression of the rebellion against the Bolsheviks. The story is most likely a hoax--a Google search reveals that Trotsky's ashes were buried, not interned. Still, we're impressed by the imagination on those anarchists. And their baking skills.
