There are no similarities between the houynyms and the yahoos. Each group shows a different characteristic of humans. In this case, the yahoos show the worst side of man and his behavior in their animalistic actions; the houynyms, who are the actual animals, show the best actions that we might expect from humans. They are the exact opposite of what one might expect.
