The riots that are ongoing in London has everyone riled up, but a new blog by the name of Photoshoplooter decided to take things lightly.

For those who haven’t heard, the riots in London started when Mark Duggan was shot and killed during an arrest attempt. This created a stir and sparked a huge protest that ended up turning ugly. A blog by the name of Photoshoplooter is making light of the situation by poking fun at the rioters who had their pictures taken. Each photograph has been digitally manipulated to parody the ongoing crisis. Whether it’s putting Elmo and Big Bird running happily along the streets, or a Justin Bieber album in the hands of a rioter, just about everything has been done to make the photographs less serious. Perhaps you can get creative and submit your own as well. Stats for Riot Photography Parodies Trending: Older & Buzzing
