WASHINGTON, Nov. 28 (UPI) — In an effort to disrespect and mock the Islamic State, members of the 4chan and Reddit 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.”
