Dubbed Gingerbottabad, Military Times calls it "the most infamous, and delicious, terrorist compound of the holiday season." Although it sounds like a movie, it's actually a replica of Osama bin Laden's Abbottabad compound, made of gingerbread by an Army military intelligence officer with a little time on his hands.
Steve the soldier talked about creation to Military Times, but only wanted his first name used “so I don’t limit my career options”...
It took Steve several days to convert his tasty vision into a rudimentary rendering in cookies and icing. He used 63 pieces of gingerbread, two sandwich bags of icing, two candy canes and a few Legos, he said.
The soldier's handiwork was first displayed on Twitter, via his handle @combatcavscout.
Director Kevin Smith responded on Twitter to Gingerbottabad with his trademark sense of humor:
"All that gingerbread makes me zero dark thirsty..."
