"Allahu Quackbar"???

I'm forced to giggle at the news that 4Chan and Reddit users have united to edit yellow rubber ducky heads onto images of ISIL fundamentalist terrorists.  The title of this blog post comes from the Reddit discussion thread.

The Telegraph reports:

As the hacker collective Anonymous continues its cyber war against the Islamic State, other internet users have also joined the fight.

The hacker group has vowed to hunt down members of the terror group, while creative users of imageboard 4Chan have decided to fight back with humour using rubber ducks.

"How about castrating the image of IS by replacing the faces on ALL the propaganda photos with bath ducks?" a 4Chan user wrote.

Since then, many Photoshop masters have been busy putting the heads of rubber ducks onto images featuring Isil fighters.

An album called ‘creates the duck state’ has been viewed more than 100,000 times on photo-sharing site Imgur.

"Great, now I'm scared to take a bath," commented one user.

There's more at the link.

"Allahu Quackbar"?  Full marks for fundamentalist punning to Reddit user Tatumkhamun for coming up with that one!

There's another phrase "making the rounds" on the interwebz, it's "Aloha Snackbar"

Like the men who enslave women and behead prisoners give one tenth of a fuck what Anonymous does.

bear in mind that Progressives are going to start WAY back on the aggression scale, especially since they are essentially related to those ISIS idiots. They don't really want to inhibit them too much. Just that things are getting a bit out of their comfort zone. Birds of a feather...

Trimegistus: True enough, but a giggle is a giggle. And ISIS/DAESH as rubber duckies made me giggle. Also, they have a social media arm, and those guys HAVE to be at least mildly pissed...or I can hope so, at least. :)
