Essex photographer Martin Le-May captured this epic moment on Monday, in which a weasel is soaring on the back of a woodpecker. It was Tweeted out by birder/wildlife photographer Jason Ward where it quickly went viral and had many people wondering if it was real or photoshopped. It’s apparently very real.

As we walked we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees. Both of us trained our binoculars and it occurred that the woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface. Lots of wing flapping showing that gloriously yellow/white colour interspersed with the flash of red head feathers. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.

He added that the woodpecker managed to get away, while the weasel wandered off into the grass.

Real or not, you can’t put a picture like that online and expect to walk away meme-free.

Here are some of the best responses from Twitter of the #WeaselPecker:

Bill Cosby attempted a simple little PR stunt on Twitter Monday, and it blew up in his face almost instantly.

Tweeting a link to a Cosby meme generator on his website (which has since been deleted), he asked his followers to turn his pictures into memes, by adding some text.

But this year, following news that he would be starring in a new NBC sitcom, Cosby's past has come back to haunt him, with old sexual assualt allegations resurfacing in the media.

So it probably wasn't the best time to ask people to get creative with Cosby's images. Has his social media team ever even heard of the Internet?

Here are a few examples of the resulting Cosby meme - he certainly got lots of attention for this stunt, but not in the way they had hoped.

We all suspected this was too good (bad?) to be true, right?

In a lengthy post on LinkedIn, a man by the name of Dil-Domine Jacobe Leonares is claiming that his company, Breakr, orchestrated the entire "Alex from Target" meme which spread like a virus across the Internet earlier this week.

The LA-based startup wants to "connect fans to their fandom." And Leonares describes the purpose of this stunt as such:

We wanted to see how powerful the fangirl demographic was by taking a unknown good-looking kid and Target employee from Texas to overnight viral internet sensation.



And after both the original Tweeter and Alex denied knowing Leonares or his company, he backtracked with an update on his post and by telling Buzzfeed that he merely "drummed up support" after the photo was posted.

Update: Abbie (@auscalum) and Alex Lee (@acl163) were never employed by Breakr. A side from Abbie being a follower and tweeting the photo, we jumped on it with the hashtag #AlexFromTarget

So to sum it all up… it's still a huge, mind-boggling mess. And Ellen doesn't seem to care.

Last month, Reddit users were able to raise enough of the digital currency (about $55,000 worth) to sponsor Josh Wise's No. 98 Phil Parsons Racing Ford for this weekend's Aaron's 499 Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway.

Reddit user C0LDBLUERIBB0N posted this image Monday afternoon, and the internet was off and running.
