Yesterday, Seattle-based record label Sub Pop shared a letter on their Tumblr blog that had reportedly come from a Virginia Tech student, asking the singer of Nirvana if "she" would appear in a video to be shown during Homecoming Week along with members of the Ying Yang Twins, Slightly Stoopid and some NFL stars. According to the post, Sub Pop staff members dressed up like Nirvana and recorded a forthcoming response. Could this be an elaborate prank? Sub Pop

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:
