People say that college football is boring and doesn't have enough #drama. Well, those people clearly didn't watch the Minnesota vs TCU game last night.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers opened up their season by taking some extreme measures to make sure they came out on top against the No. 2-ranked Horned Frogs.

What was the team's secret? This very dramatic chipmunk.

Minnesota broadcast this classic meme on the jumbotron in an attempt to distract the TCU kicker during field goals.

Alas, Minnesota tried their sneaky chipmunk trick, but TCU ultimately came out on top with a 23-17 win.

Next game, Doge. Much football.

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:
