Internet mocks Islamic State by editing rubber ducks into recruitment photos

WASHINGTON, - In an effort to disrespect and mock the Islamic State, members of the Reddit group 4chan have been editing recruitment photos to recast the terrorist group as a gang of rogue rubber ducks armed with toilet brushes.

The effort, informally referred to "Allahu Quackbar," has 4chan "fighting terrorism with memes," according to one member who posted in a Reddit forum that has taken the edited images to a wider audience.

"How about castrating the image of Isis by replacing the faces on ALL the propaganda photos with bath ducks?," wrote one 4chan member as the effort began to gain some steam, according to The Guardian.

Although some members of the terrorist group have received both duck tails and heads, most have just been given big yellow heads with orange beaks, and many of their guns have been replaced with toilet brushes.

Many of the pictures have been collected by users in the photo gallery "Creates The Duck State."

Most effective and entertaining counter terrorism effort I’ve seen in some time.

But it’s still not acceptable to mock the image of the U.S. president’s hero pedophile “prophet”....

The rubber duck heads make them look absurd, which is good. The brandished toilet brushes are a nice touch too.

The rainbow gay-pride stripe on the gun magazine is a nice touch.

I guess if we are going for ‘evil’ we should use Miss Piggy . . .

Large amounts of FBI investigative power is being pulled away from the extensive long term investigation of John Corzine to find and prosecute 4chan for their mockery of Obama’s revolutionary partners.

I’m curious: is that a Merkava tank? If so, that makes the irony ever so much sweeter, since the moon-worshippers hate Jews more than anything else on earth!
