The Exterminating Burrito

Bombs hidden in burritos are almost as old as the burrito itself. Ever since hungry, practical people have been stuffing tortillas with rice, beans, and assorted leftovers, criminals, spies and assorted other scoundrels have been stuffing them with explosives. That's why dignitaries never have burritos at state dinners.

(For years, Central Intelligence Agency operatives tried to kill Fidel Castro with a burrito bomb, but it never worked: Cubans generally don't eat burritos.)
