The only positive thing to come out of our Corona Virus lockdown is the amazing gift to humanity which is Netflix’s Tiger King documentary.

What an incredible ride this was. And with anything culturally significant, then came the memes. Here’s a nice big collection of Tiger King memes that have been keeping us entertained whilst in lockdown.

Yes, Disney+ did release Frozen 2 early in many parts of the world, there is no denying that releasing this documentary wasn’t a fantastic rebuttal from the competing streaming service.

We all know Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself and we all definitely know that maybe Carole Baskin killed her husband, maybe. Probably. Oh boy.

tiger king feature film

There is seriously just so much going on here.

With all the social distancing and incredibly confusing rules here in Australia about how long you can go to the hairdresser for, it’s no surprise people are being tempted to cut or dye their hair at home… Then needing to Facetime their hairdresser for help.

I still can’t believe Joe Exotic has married more straight males than I have.

carole baskin mother teresa

We know Carole Baskin sees herself as a Mother Teresa figure for big cats and exotic animals, but all we can see her as is someone who maybe, probably killed her rich husband. Seriously, her lack of sympathy for the guy is suspicious as hell.

Everyone is stupid but me.

tiger king meme choose a leader

I never thought much about big cat owners or even really knew this was a thing, but holy heck. Some of these people really did make me want to join their cults. Yes, Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin and Doc Bhagavan Antle are basically cult leaders and despite everything, I kind of love all of them in a very confusing way.

tiger king i'm still single meme

Tiger King is certainly no confidence boost for single people out there. Carole snagged a multimillionaire husband, Antle had 5 wives at a time and Joe got 2 straight men to marry him. Why does everyone want to marry tiger owners?! What is going on here?!

tiger king lost footage meme

The Tiger King has so much insane old footage that truly, despite the deaths, murders and heartache the people in this show have experienced, the part that made me saddest is knowing how much absolutely batshit insane footage was destroyed forever in that gator shack. How many more episodes could that footage have fueled? I’m sorry but I need more Tiger King in my life.

tiger king change my mind meme

If The Tiger King has taught me one thing, no one can remain straight if there’s a bag of meth involved. Seriously kids, don’t do meth.
