Isis nutella names Nutella Refused to Customize a Jar of Nutella for a Little Girl Named Isis

ISIS has come to be known as a terrorist group but before that Isis was an Egyptian goddess who brought her brother/husband Osiris back to life after he was murdered. It's also the name of a five-year-old Australian girl who really wants her name on a jar of Nutella. 

The company Ferrero Australia started a campaign called “Make Me Yours” which allowed people to add their names to jars of Nutella. Allowing the internet to brand your product went predictably wrong.  Department stores, such as the Meyer Isis's mom tried to buy from, are unable to print everything submitted. It might have something to do with gems like this one:

For the mom of this little girl, being denied a personalized jar of sweet, hazelnut chocolate spread is the last straw in a long line of unforseen consequences cause by the unfortunate name.  She told the Sydney Morning Herald, "I am starting to get to the point where I don't want to call her name out because she's going to start noticing people looking."

Now she's on a mission to reclaim the name.

The normally horrible folks over at 4Chan have actually done something pretty awesome.

While ISIS is busy trying to terrorize the whole world, 4Chan users thought it might be time to bring the group down a couple notches and treat them like what they really are—ridiculous idiots.

What better way to mock an organization that sees itself as super tough? Turn them into cute little rubber duckies.

With any tragedy nowadays, the hashtags and social media statements don't take long to pop up.

Facebook activated an option to overlay an image of the French flag over user's profile pics after terrorist attacks led by ISIS last week killed 129 people in Paris.

People were quick to point out that an attack on Lebanon carried out by the same terrorist group one day before received little attention.

Well, this fixes that.

All Flags Profile Photo Converter allows users to add every flag of a country targeted by ISIS to their profile picture.

The flags featured include: Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon, Pakistan, Yemen, Nigeria, Cameroon, Bahrain, Russia, France, Egypt, Algeria, Afghan, Libya, Chad and Kenya.

There's no way for anyone to be offended now, right?

Anonymous has declared war on ISIS.

The global hacktivist collective released a chilling video Saturday where they threaten terrorist organization ISIS (or Daesh) in retribution for horrible attacks carried out last week in Paris.

A series of bombings and armed attacks linked to ISIS killed 129 people.

"Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down," a masked spokesperson says in French.

"You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go. We will launch the biggest operation ever against you."

Anonymous is promising to take down any websites with ISIS propaganda and make their Internet lives hell.

This will be the group's "biggest operation ever"

Not everyone who has a beard is a terrorist—go figure!

The Swedish chapter of Bearded Villains, a beard enthusiast group, were mistaken for the terrorist group ISIS during a retreat where the bearded bros were posing with their flag.

Apparently the group's flag looks similar to the official flag for ISIS. And because beards = terrorists.

According to Swedish media, police showed up to the meeting at Brahehus castle and had a good laugh at the case of mistaken identity.

Check out some more pictures of these burly men on their Instagram.

Some Louisiana residents are pretty certain that ISIS is coming for them. 

They were tipped off by conspicuous signs popping up in the rural area of Gardner situated in the center of the state. 

Thankfully, it was not the Islamic extremist group and instead someone trying to be friendly. 

According to local news KALB:

The Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office says signs that have popped up in Gardner depicting a message written in another language are written in Hebrew.

RPSO and KALB were contacted by several residents who were concerned about the signs and that they might have been terror message written in Arabic.

The sheriff's office says not to worry, they are actually "welcome home" signs written in Hebrew and not in anyway affiliated with ISIS.



This is just another reminder to not be friendly.



People will always think you are from ISIS.

Between threats from Anonymous and a new crackdown from Twitter, ISIS is having a tough time reaching out and recruiting new psychopaths online.

To circumvent the censorship, the Islamic militant group has reportedly created its own social network called “Khelafabook.”

The Facebook clone claims it is independent and not actually sponsored by ISIS (even though it has ISIS logos all over its homepage). It says its goal is to show the world that they don’t only “live in caves” and “carry guns,” and they vow to “will rule the world by Allah’s permission.”

Khelafabook was set up by a man in Mosul, Iraq, according to The Independent, and is hosted in Egypt. There’s also an associated Twitter account which is linked to from the site.

The site first popped up last week, but has already been taken offline “to protect the info and details of its members,” according to a message on the page.

After it was taken down, Twitter accounts associated with Anonymous appeared to claim responsibility, as Vocativ points out.

For the the time being they’ll have to look elsewhere to share their terrorist pancake recipes.

One grandmother apparently gave ISIS quite an earful.

In the video above which surfaced last week, an old woman in Syria gets right up in the face of some ISIS militants (according to the uploader) telling them that what they are doing is wrong.

“Oh you devils, turn back to God,” she says, “It’s all forbidden. I swear nothing what you have done was in the way of God.”

She argues against the unnecessary slaughter of innocents and warns them that their group is cursed.

“Neither of you will win,” she says. “Nor will anybody, you only will keep killing each other like donkeys.”

The men laugh and make fun of her, telling her to go away.

There isn’t much more information on the origins of this video, and the BBC wonders if the men are in fact ISIS as the uploader claims them to be. Some commenters are pointing out that if it really were ISIS, they would have killed the woman on the spot.

Over the weekend, U.S. led forced conducted a number of air strikes against ISIS targets in both Syria and Iraq.

Social media accounts belonging the United States Central Command were hacked on Monday by a group claiming to be ISIS sympathizers.

The attack comes at the same time that President Obama is promoting his plans to bolster cybersecurity.

The hackers posted a number of eerie warnings on the Twitter account @CENTCOM, which has since been suspended. They changed the profile images to those in the photo above with the words "CyberCaliphate" and "I love you ISIS."

"AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS," they wrote. They also posted spreadsheets with contact info for retired U.S. army generals and maps of North Korea and China. Nothing posted was classified, however, and it is all available publicly online.

Their YouTube account was compromised as well with two new videos added called "Flames of War ISIS Video" and "O Soldiers of Truth Go Forth," according to Reuters.

"We can confirm that the U.S. Central Command's Twitter and YouTube accounts were compromised earlier today. We are taking appropriate measures to address the matter," Centcom said in a statement.

Another tweet linked to the following message on Pastbin:

"While the US and its satellites kill our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan we broke into your networks and personal devices and know everything about you," they wrote. "You'll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now. We won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children. U.S. soldiers! We're watching you!"

As part of their initiative to recruit women, ISIS has released a recipe for pancakes.

Earlier this year, the terrorist group established a finishing school called "Al-Zawra," to attract women to the cause who are "interested in explosive belt and suicide bombing more than a white dress or a castle or clothing or furniture."

The school provides training in areas like sewing, cooking, first aid and social media so women can assist their husbands in battle.

The pancakes post is a follow up to their "balls of date mush" recipe from earlier in November and is pretty basic.

The biggest atrocity: they suggest honey and not maple syrup.

The terrorist group the Islamic State (ISIS) announced Thursday that it is planning to make its own form of currency in the form of gold, silver and copper coins.

According to CNN:

The move is "purely dedicated to God" and will remove Muslims from the "global economic system that is based on satanic usury," ISIS said.

The coins will reportedly contain the phrase: "The Islamic State / A Caliphate Based on the Doctrine of the Prophet," and contain - among other symbols - stalks of wheat, a sword and shield, a crescent moon and palm trees.

Most of the group's income comes from oil, stolen goods and ransom money, so according to Jimmy Gurule, a former U.S. Treasury undersecretary, "you can't just put that money in shoe boxes and place it under your mattress."
