It is amazing what goes viral on YouTube.
And I am pretty sure that funny cat videos are at the top of list of the most viewed viral videos … ever.
That said, I watched a lot of non-cat videos this week including one I found in a wonderful post by Young Yoga Masters that explained how human beings are wired to experience empathy and posed questions as to the evolutionary implications of this phenomenon.
Also, I viewed the follow up TED Talk by Sir Ken Robinson in which he continues the discussion about the nature of our educational system. If you haven't seen the original video, watch it. It's brilliant and funny and despite the title, Do Schools Kill Creativity? it is actually quite a positive perspective.
And the video I chose to share with you today?
Cats Playing Patty-Cake (or is it pat-a-cake?) at that. This video is delightfully absurd and surprise, surprise has over 1 million views in less than 1 month. The Sir Ken Robinson video is over 4 years old and has just a few hundred thousand more. Hmmm …
So, while I may have roped you in with these irresistible cats. I do hope you check out the other videos I mentioned as well (links are in the red text above). They are worth your time for sure – at least as much as funny cat videos.
P.S. Stay tuned … this month's yoga giveaway will be posted soon!
