Arafat Cheese Puffs

The big snack-treat hit on the streets of Egypt these days are Yasser Arafat Cheese Puffs (no joke). Egyptian citizens like the one above are snatching up the brightly colored bags, which feature a cartoon of Arafat with the cheese puffs at his feet (again, no joke) and each bag bought promises not only bite sized morsels of cheesy-goodness, but finance for a Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation, with the added benefit of sticking it to U.S. goods manufacturers, whose products many Egyptians are calling to boycott.
