Digital Trends top 5 viral videos of may 6 2011 ninja dogWe are back with a new selection of videos to tickle your fancy. These videos are not all from this week, but they all made us laugh or caused our jaws to drop recently. Enjoy!

Ninja Dog Attacks Cat

Where to begin with this one. The dog—which looks like it is half cow—decides to take a lesson from her rival, the cat, and go stealth. Like Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell, the enemy agent (the cat) is caught completely unaware as the dog attacks. The cat was fine, but if felines have pride, this one’s just took a whuppin’.

Obama TKOs Trump

It was a big week for President Obama. Last week he released the long form of his birth-certificate, to which possible Presidential rival Donald Trump ended his attacks just long enough to take credit for forcing the release. Then this week, Obama walked up to the microphones with a bit of a swagger and announced the death of Osama Bin Laden. But between the two events, he had time to rip Trump, and a handful of others a new one at the annual Press Dinner. If this were Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, you might be able to see the “TKO” over Trump’s head as the last jokes hit.
