The Very Best of #WeaselPecker

We all love a good picture of animals that have been caught riding other animals, and another one has been making the round over the past day or two. It's a baby weasel attempting to hitch a ride on the back of a woodpecker, snapped by Martin Le-May as he strolled through an Essex park with his wife on Monday.

Well, the morbid truth is that this is not a real-life imitation of a loveable Disney scene. In reality the weasel was in the process trying to kill the woodpecker, and the woodpecker was having none of it. But that horrifying fact hasn't stopped the picture taking the internet by storm, in what has been dubbed #WeaselPecker.

We do love a good meme here at Giz UK, so let's take a look at some of the best memes and captions people came up with:
