The photograph of a baby weasel riding a woodpecker caught the attention of the world, with netizens filled with awe after seeing such an adorable sight.
It was only later that we all learned this photo is not what it seems. These two are not the best of friends – and the woodpecker was not actually giving this weasel a ride. The truth of the matter is that this is actually a species of weasel-eating woodpecker and the mammal was desperately trying to hold on to dear life.
Now that the truth was out, you would think netizens would give the matter a rest. Well, the opposite happened because the adorable yet creepy photograph quickly sparked hilarious internet memes.
It seems that everyone has a great and funny idea for a caption to accompany the photo. They did not stop there, of course, because Photoshop is quite a handy tool.
Here are some of the memes sparked by this now popular photo:
