A roundup of the best tweets about Luis Suarez's bizarre World Cup biting incident

By ERIC LYONS

Fans took a bite out of Luis Suárez following an incident during Uruguay's 1-0 win versus Italy on Tuesday. In the 80th minute Suárez and Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini got tied up in front of Italy's goal when Suárez took an apparent chomp on Chiellini's shoulder (to see the alleged bite click here).

While millions at home saw the bite on live television, the referee did not, and a foul was not called. Chiellini fell to the ground and even pulled his jersey down to show the referee the evidence of the bite, but was not granted any assistance. Uruguay won the game and advanced to the knockout stage of the tournament, while Italy was sent packing after finishing third in Group D.

Social media surged with responses to the event. #Suarez, #LuisSuarez, and #bite were trending on Twitter shortly after the end of the game. Fans even edited photos of Suarez that made him look like a vampire by making his teeth look like fangs or added the immortalized Hannibal Lecter facemask to show he is a cannibal. Celebrities like Monty Python great Eric Idle and former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield -- who knows something about being bitten -- took to the Internet to respond.

What a fakester Suarez is when he pretends that the shoulder hit his teeth instead of his teeth biting the shoulder! Ha! What a shameless jerk.

He may have been hungry or just pissed off that he is stuck at the World Cup while all his friends are crossing the border into Texas

This is why soccer will never be a popular sport in America. A man bites the opposing player gets away with it and then wins the game. I'm not watching a sport that has no control over what happens on the field. Also seems stupid that there's only 4 referees for a field that big. This world cup sucks!!!!!!!!! I have no interest in it. I can already tell you Brazil vs Argentina for the last match. Soccer is a fixed sport more then any other.

So much for the old saying, "They can beat you but they can't eat you!" I guess Suarez can eat you! Ban him!

...and when someone takes a bite out of you for no apparent reason, will you say "Who cares...it's just _____?" Maybe you're a cannibal too.
