Last week we had a tight battle with the Sweet Sixteen of Cat GIFs going at it. Which cat GIF went all … the …. way? Well, according to a lot of feedback I got, it was “G-g-g-g-ghosts.” But then again, a lot of people went crazy for “My Binky.” But guys, guys, we all win when it comes to cat GIFs. Which is why this week is an even tougher competition: what can possibly compete against the majesty of cat GIFs?
Easy answer: pug GIFs.
Pugs are inherently hilarious thanks to their short legs, lolling tongues, and smushy faces. But if you only give them five second loops of their antics? You have a competition for the ages.
vs. “Bounce House”
You think “Running Club” is just going to be a cute puppy running, right, till OUT OF NO WHERE a second deranged pug face comes into frame. SNEAK ATTACK. “Bounce House” is bringing it though, since that pug just thinks he’s a regular bunny.
“No bath for you!” vs.
Look, that bathtime pug has a solid shimmy. But you know what he could use? A best friend. Even if that best friend isn’t real.
“Potty Humor” vs.
THAT PUG IS STUCK IN A TOILET. If anything can beat a pug stuck in a toilet, it’s a puppet biting a pug’s butt.
“Mommy Dearest” vs.
“I’m Number One”
Awww, that pug thinks it’s a mommy hoooman. It’s no contest though when a pug has aim like that.
Is anything more offensive than the incredulity of a pug? No. No, there is not. But there is nothing cooler than a cool pug either.
“Maybe it was … ALIENS?!”
What is more powerful: three smash cuts pulling into a pug’s face or a simple, elegant head tilt? You be the judge. But I can’t stop laughing at “Aliens?”
“I Love Lucy” vs.
I like that Lucy and the Hulk are putting in equal effort.
“Wampug” vs. “Bantha”
“Star Wars” is back, baby – so do you prefer “Empire” or original “Star Wars”?
As always …
There are no losers in Mel’s March Madness, especially not today. Pug .gifs reign supreme, at least until next week.
