Internet memes can be wonderful things. For example, Lord Bassington-Bassington is quite a fan of the Rick Roll. The RickRoll is not just a good-natured and well-mannered prank, it also includes a blazer, which gives it an instant advantage over ruder and cruder pranks.
One of the most popular Internet memes over the last years has been the Dramatic Chipmunk. It's a great meme, and since the video is really of a prairie dog, which gives it a certain canine charm to begin with.
But as the following video shows, it was vastly improved by substituting the prairie dog for a Basset Hound.
Some people obviously got the idea that things instantly become more fun with Bassets, and decided to replace racehorses with more stylish creatures. As this video reveals, it was a vast improvement (the action comes towards the end of the video, so some fast-forwarding can be a good idea).
As this video proves, races aren't only more fun to watch when bassets replace horses, they also take far less time. And thus leave more room for more important things, like snuggling, snoozing, sniffing and munching.
