    While some social media users seemed amused by the joke photo, there were also those who did not seem thrilled by it.

    UK Defence Journal, an independent website “publishing British and international defence news and analysis”, as it styles itself on Twitter, has managed to cause quite a stir online by sharing a particular picture.

    The image in question depicts British aircraft carriers HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales in the sea, with French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle sailing between them.

    The picture, however, appears to have been altered, as the French vessel in it looks much smaller than its British counterparts, and a number of social media users seemed rather amused by this sight.

    A number of people, however, were quick to notice the apparent photoshop, with some even pointing at the apparent author of the original joke.

    And when UK Defence Journal openly admitted that it was indeed a joke, it evoked a fresh round of humorous comments from netizens.

    There were also those, however, who did not seem particularly amused by the photo and by the outlet that tweeted it.
