These are not really TRUE 'Bin Laden Buns.'

Despite what the bakers in Malawi might think.

Naming a product after the world’s most notorious terrorist may not seem like a surefire route to commercial success.

For bakers in the Malawian city of Blantyre, however, this marketing ploy is helping to reel in customers while ensuring that their produce has an unmistakeable identity.

“We make bin Laden buns,” said Mahomed Hanif Valimamade, co-owner of a patisserie within the city named the Portuguese Bakery.

How do I know this?  Simple: if they were TRUE bin Laden buns, they would each have two holes in one end and be covered in sea salt.

PS: You could probably make a decent BLT out of one of these, though.
