Culmination of human evolution? Ability to record funny animal videos?

I've been spending some time on Youtube, and one of the main things I notice is that there are tons of videos of animals doing things, usually kind of funny things. I'm a huge animal person, but there comes a point where I reach a saturation level, where enough is enough, animals doing the same stupid things over and over again gets a bit played out.
And it doesn't stop there, everywhere you look there are photoshopped pictures of animals that are meant to be funny. Or movies like Garfield or that kung fu dog movie, or Air Bud.
I suppose that is the loss of childhood, when you see animals doing funny things, or acting human, and you don't find it all that funny anymore. I still have extremely fond memories of that talking black cat on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. My sister would watch that, and I would join her just to see that cat. Inexplicably funny. Maybe it was his snide demeanor.
In spite of my mini-diatribe, I still find some animal videos funny. As much as I get annoyed, sometimes you just can't help yourself. Shoot, who'm I kidding, I still LOVE animals doing funny things! I feel like an alcoholic berating someone else for drinking.

Wow, I loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch too. I still watch the reruns, actually. Salem really was the best part of the show. He had so much attitude. I also found it funny how fake looking he was.

Spot on, I think the fact that he was so fake looking was probably the best part.
