Anyway, let’s proceed with the evidence that proves dogs are so much funnier than cats.
TALKING DOG VIDEOS: WHO SAID THAT?
Cats meow and dogs talk. The talking dog is a comedic phenomenon that often brings the most stoic viewer to their knees with mirth. Why is it so funny? Well, like all truly great comedians it’s not so much what they say, but how they say it; it’s all about the way the dog delivers.
The talking dog often delivers comedy with an expressive almost human face, with scrunched up thick eyebrows covering deep sage, penetrating eyes. Their expression resonates with us; their words add color and the results are hilarious. Dog’s can now talk!
Do you need any more proof than this human conversation that is taking place here between dog and man?
TEAM COMEDY VIDEOS
Cats are independent and we really don’t see too much team cat comedy. Dogs tend to be more interactive; more open to improvisation, and can be more playful. Don’t believe us? Check out the next video to see what we mean:
WINNING COMBINATION: DOGS AND BABIES
The bond between dogs and people starts at such a young age. In one of the greatest laughing barking mad moments of all time, the delightful laughter of this young baby shows that dogs are inherently funnier than cats.
It’s incredible the way the dog and baby seem to converse with each other, playing the same old gag over and over again, yet never tiring of the simple unadulterated pleasure of each others company. It’s simply beautiful.
DOGS VIDEOS VERSUS CATS VIDEOS
Two worlds collide when people in their infinite wisdom decide that cats and dogs should cohabitate together. Okay, occasionally cats and dogs do get along, but sometimes they can be the worst of foes, and this often creates an ideal scenario for a funny video.
It’s a kind of domestic civil war, where we get to root for the underdog or cheer for our preferred pet. It’s a collision of differences, the dog of good intentions often wants to simply play, but the cat – the lord of the manor – is having none of it.
Why are they funny? Dog versus cat videos, often provide us with a sense of disbelief… “What was that dog thinking?” Or “Look what that cat did!” The scenarios found in dog versus cat videos usually contain large amounts of physical comedy as the dog and the cat line-up against each other as two unevenly matched pugilists.
Let the boxing begin as seen in the video below and let’s be clear, the cat started it.
Sometimes dogs and cats manage to work out their differences and decide to be friends. This often occurs when the “cat” involved has a dog-like personality. Nevertheless this sweet dog and cat video can inspire us to all get along.
WHY THE FUNNIEST DOG VIDEOS WILL WIN
One might argue that dog videos could be more viral not only because dogs actually do funnier things, but also because there is a special universal bond between dog and man.
Establishing a universal connection is the secret behind creating any great viral video. The videos above illustrate the connection between dog and man and yes, even occasionally dog and cat. When people feel connected to a video – especially one that makes them feel happy – they often share it. Thus making a video viral.
