Hoffa search leads to cupcake cash

A Michigan bakery is cashing in on the renewed search for Jimmy Hoffa by selling cupcakes with green plastic hands stabbing through chocolate icing. The creepy confection (see the picture!) brings to mind the long-vanished union honcho, buried alive and grasping vainly for the sky.

They're selling like, well, hotcakes, and the bakery has ordered 700 more green hands to keep up with demand.

"I never dreamed it would take off like this," said Laura Helwig, co-owner of Milford Baking Co. "We're just trying to have fun with the whole thing."

Now that's the kind of thing that makes America great!
