Where there's a social or political event that captures the world's attention, however serious or violent it may be, there will be a meme. Naturally, the riots and looting currently tearing through London are no exception.

A new Tumblr, Photoshoplooter, has taken up the mantle on this one, turning disturbing images of looters into wacky ones by photoshopping in Justin Bieber, Spongebob Squarepants, ET… you get the idea. Forget for a minute that one of the world's capitals is suffering serious damage both socially and economically, and instead check out a few of the more choice pictures from the site. Thanks, internet!
