Is this the best meme of all time? Shut up. Don’t even answer that question. It was rhetorical. And, for the record, the answer is clearly yes. The Internet is, by all accounts, a raging garbage fire of human misery peppered with occasional bits of happiness that usually take the form of animal pictures. The latest bright light at the end of this dark, never-ending tunnel is a series of weird advertisements for natural habitats like forests, deserts, oceans, and jungles that feature photos of animals with the sort of gloriously incorrect-but-not-entirely-wrong names you’d find in a book like xckd’s Thing Explainer.
This particular dank-ass meme came to our attention via Twitter user Yarrow, and now it’s consuming our every waking thought.https://twitter.com/yarrrow/status/850152776185266176
How about the jungle? Come for the new neon hoppers, but stay for the harmless vines!
Maybe the forest is more your speed?
Or if you like it hot, how about a desert?
Or perhaps you think its better, down where it’s wetter, under the sea?
Hell, even the Monterey Bay Aquarium is getting in on the action:

Now maybe you’re Sir David Attenborough, the veteran English broadcaster and calming voice behind BBC’s Planet Earth series, and you find this sort of misinformation to be disingenuous. But maybe you’re Sir David Attenborough, the veteran English broadcaster and calming voice behind BBC’s Planet Earth series, and you have a great sense of humor. And if that’s the case we need you to narrate each and every one of these ads because the world could honestly use it right now. Especially those poor little snippers. Just look at their tiny snip-snips. Are you going to say no to them, Sir David Attenborough? Good, I didn’t think so.
