!! OMG, it’s Igor’s Look Of The Week: The weasel that decided to take a ride on the back of woodpecker! !!

Disney execs are wet with joy after seeing these images of a weasel riding on a woodpecker pop us this week. Yes — a real photo, taken by photographer Martin Le-May in a park in East London. More on the dynamic duo via Slate:

The photographer, Martin Le-May, told me it began when he heard distress calls from the bird, a European green woodpecker, and turned to see it jumping up and down on the ground. These woodpeckers commonly feed on ground-dwelling ants, and the weasel must have initiated a sneak attack. Birds do what birds do, however, and once the bird righted itself it was airborne–but not free. Though weasels are known for their courage and brazenness, I’m not sure this one was prepared for this contingency. Le-May said the pair got about 10 feet off the ground before landing again, where the bird managed to free itself of the weasel and fly off, both creatures apparently unharmed.

Check out a play by play of the action below!

!! OMG, donate to a VERY important cause: Man starts Nickelback Kickstarter campaign to keep band out of playing London !!

Craig Mandell is out there fighting for the greater good of planet Earth (or at least the people of London) and has promised to send an email to Nickelback’s management for every donation received towards his Kickstarter campaign. $1 gets you one email to Nickelback while $5 gets you a “slightly more forceful email” demanding that they not play London, England.

For $50 your donation “will result in an email to Nickleback with an attached mp3 of Nickelback’s music. This way, the band will hear their own music, and likely retire immediately, thereby ensuring the success of our campaign.”
“With your help, we can ensure that the band do not schedule any gigs here, do not attempt to come here – nor even phone here,” he has written.
“Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious. Legendary.”
Mr. Mandell gave his reasons for a Nickelback Kickstarter campaign page in an FAQ section, saying that the band create “unlistenable music”.

The campaign insists that “this campaign is not about personal profit. All proceeds will go to charity. Or perhaps therapy for those who’ve been affected by the band.” Mr. Mandell is my new hero. DONATE TODAY!
