Yesterday, the internet went crazy over this viral photograph of a weasel riding a woodpecker.

Like the infamous ‘DressGateincident, it wasn’t long before funny and creative memes flooded Twitter from all corners of the world.

Lampooning celebrities and world leaders, they feature actor John Travolta and Russian President Vladimir Putin perched on the woodpecker—our favorite has to be Gandalf hitching a ride on the bird’s back.

Check out a selection of memes below and view more here.
