CRAP !!
A Nazi plot to kill Sir Winston Churchill with a bar of exploding chocolate
during the Second World War has been revealed in historic papers.

Giving a new meaning to the dessert name “death by chocolate”, Adolf Hitler’s
bomb makers coated explosive devices with a thin layer of rich dark
chocolate, then packaged it in expensive-looking black and gold paper.
The Germans apparently planned to use secret agents working in Britain to
discreetly place the bars - branded as Peters Chocolate - among other luxury
items taken into the dining room used by the War Cabinet during the
conflict.
The lethal slabs of confection were packed with enough explosives to kill
anyone within several meters.
But the plot was foiled by British spies who discovered the chocolate was
being made and tipped off one of MI5’s most senior intelligence chiefs, Lord
Victor Rothschild, before the wartime prime minister’s life could be
endangered.

I wonder what peacock tastes like. Pheasant, perhaps? Is peacock still consumed in India or any other part of the world?

Thanks again for your daily trivia game!
