There have been documentaries in the past that have captured the world’s attention before, but honestly, I can’t really think of one that has caught on like wildfire the way Netflix’s Tiger King has in the past few weeks.
I suppose there’s just something about the combination of a gun loving, polygamous gay man breeding tigers in Oklahoma, a cult leader doing the same things (except heterosexually) in South Carolina, a (probably murderous) crazy cat lady in Florida, and a murder-for-hire that really captures people’s attention.
If you’re hooked and you can’t get enough, first of all, I feel you. Second, you’re going to want these 14 tweets in your life.

12. When he offered them tickets for another day I was just dying.
Joe Exotic: Alright. I’m going to be honest. A tiger did just bite someone’s arm off.

8. Of all the terrible hair in the series, this guy’s is the best/worst.

That series is really the most batsh*t thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Until now.
