Uruguay star Luis Suarez captured all the headlines for all the wrong reasons after his side’s heated 1-0 win over Italy at the World Cup on Tuesday.
Suarez appeared to bite Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini late in the clash. An enraged Chiellini rushed the referee to display the evidence, while Suarez appeared to actually be in pain in the dental region after the pair came together.
It isn’t the first time Suarez has been in the news for biting incidents, having been suspended twice already in his career for taking a bite out of an opponent.
So, naturally, the internet took a bite out of Suarez, using the power of photo manipulation.
First, there were the Google searches.
Then there was the social media reaction, which was immediate, severe, and extremely silly.

This is one for the children, if in fact you hate children and want to give them nightmares.
It was really a promo for Luis Suarez's new children's game. pic.twitter.com/w6JJddj5zx— Pierre The Pelican (@PelicanPierre) June 24, 2014
This one imagines that Chiellini has poor taste in music.

This one ponders whether Suarez has future in movies.

This one ponders whether Suarez has future in movies. As a shark.
This man is not Luis Suarez, but right now it doesn't matter, so he should turn off his social media.
NO SOY LUIS SUAREZ, HAY MUCHOS SUAREZ EN EL MUNDO, NO SOY LUIS SUAREZ POR FAVOR— Diego Suarez (@Suarez) June 24, 2014
This man is rich $985 richer, because he put a $5 bet on Suarez to bite someone at the World Cup before the tournament began.

FIFA may need to resort to bite-line technology to determine a suspension.
