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.

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