Luis Suarez and arm-biting jokes are currently all the rage, so get yours in now while they are still topical. 

Yahoo! Sports spotted something that is becoming quite popular overseas: football players biting arms. Only, this time the player was not Suarez, and the arm was not real. 

Amid the celebration of Manchester United taking the Premiership, someone threw a fake arm at Patrice Evra. Being that this seems to be the perfect week for such things, he decided to pretend to take a bite out of it, an impromptu homage to Suarez literally biting an actual arm Sunday. 

As the report states, it merely seems that Evra was poking fun at Suarez. Alas, we will have to make due with the very safe assumption, because there is no hope someone will actually ask Evra what he meant by the odd gesture. 

For those uninitiated, Liverpool striker Suarez was caught biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in Sunday's fixture. 

As Yahoo! Sports reminds us, this is the second time Suarez has decided to sink his teeth into an opponent. Back in 2010, the then-AJAX star bit Otman Bakkal, garnering a seven-match ban. 

An intriguing subplot to an already bizarre couple days of football, Mike Tyson—famed former boxer who took a chunk out of Evander Holyfield's ear in 1997—instantly followed Suarez on Twitter. If you are going to lose the respect of many fans, you might as well pick up one famous Twitter follow. 

So you can see, biting players is sort of Suarez's shtick. As for Manchester United, they have equally impressive consistency amid top-flight football. The club just won their 20th EPL title with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa. 

The jubilation was such that no matter of foreign objects thrown onto the pitch could deter this club from celebrating in style, not even a fake severed arm.
