Why are cats so funny? They are the ultimate comedy straight man. For a straight man to be effective, he/she must be dignified. The audience must take them seriously at first, or else the pie in the face won’t be funny. We expect a moron to do moronic things, that’s why so many people can’t stand clowns.  But when someone with dignity takes a pie the face, you’ve got potential for comedy gold.  Cats always look serious. They are smart and sophisticated hunters. They are skilled, agile, and clever. They are handsome, regal, the king of their little jungle, and we take them seriously. So when they do goofy stuff and fall from grace, we can’t help but smile. :-)
