This David Attenborough comment thread turned into an incredible Fresh Prince cover
This is why the internet is wonderful.

LAST WEEK, DAVID Attenborough visited Reddit to answer users’ questions as part of the community site’s Ask Me Anything section.

It gave rise to perhaps the greatest display of community effort and co-operation the online world has ever witnessed.

The glory began with this innocent question from lula2488:

when you see a predator attempting to take down prey, do you take sides? Who do you barrack for?

To which Attenborough answered:

You can’t take sides. If you interfered you would cause more deaths not less.

And there it began. Witness:
