Striking the perfect balance of intrigue, salaciousness and downright absurdity, it's no wonder the documentary has amassed such a vast following.

Viewers then learn of his ongoing feud with Carole Baskin, a rival who owns the Big Cat Rescue in Florida.
And while the tall tale is enough to keep anyone entertained, the memes that the show has inspired are perhaps even more grabbing. Here are the most hilarious ones...
