As expected, many people have been turning to Netflix during this period of physical/social distancing. And while the streaming service has many reality shows, comedy series, and dramatic movies to get your mind off of the current coronavirus outbreak, a new docuseries really has fans talking.
Tiger King (the series' full title is actually Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness) is a seven-part documentary that follows three big cat owners: Joe Exotic, a polygamist and country western singer; Carole Baskin, an "animal activist" with a dark past of her own; and Doc Antle, a suspected cult leader. Also included in the list of characters are "drug kingpins and conmen," as Netflix kindly points out.
Each episode of the series is crazier than the last, and viewers have been sharing their thoughts online with a bunch of hilarious gifs and photos, so we decided to put together a list of the best Tiger King memes.
The first thing you need to know is that this documentary is a RIDE:
Seriously, it's crazy:
Maybe because it's like 5 shows in one:
And some innocent people started watching it not knowing what they were getting into:
The premise of the series is somehow the most normal thing about it:
But at least it'll make you feel better about your own life:
Double standards much?
First they hate, then they copy:
Joe's music is actually pretty catchy:
We'll never look at pizza the same:
Carole's husband went "missing?" We're skeptical:
Because that sardine oil line was a tad too specific:

Everyone thinking about her “missing” husband: #TigerKingNetflix #tigerking #joeexotic pic.twitter.com/1ToB2xm5qz
Shirts are always optional, apparently:
When it's only March but you already have a Halloween costume:
Joe is the King of Petty:
Carole was obsessed with Joe for one good reason:
Tiger King also reminded viewers of another documentary:
And it's even better than everyone's former favorite:
But it's also unclear who you should be rooting for:
Karma? Just might be:

Joe: screaming and shouting

This isn't even a meme, it's just weird as hell:
The docuseries is also a reflection of our quarantine life right now:
And it's brought us all together:
The series also makes a great conversation starter:
Even if you don't have anyone to talk to:

But by the end, Tiger King will have changed you. Forever:
After finishing up #TigerKing, everything I wanted to watch next seems to pale in comparison. I never knew a doc series about a fringe-jacket-wearing frizzy-blonde-mullet-haired psychotic gun-toting gay polygamist exotic animal zoo owner would ruin me. I'm flabbergasted. pic.twitter.com/RFP48jZ6XA— J.B. Hamilton will get better eventually. (@StorySorcery) March 23, 2020
