Lawyer Accidentally Activates Cat Filter During Zoom Call

A lawyer in Texas became a viral sensation on Tuesday after accidentally activating a cat filter during a court hearing over Zoom.

Footage of the incident, which went viral on Twitter, shows attorney Rod Ponton struggling to deactivate the filter while appearing as a young feline.

Judge Roy B. Ferguson can be overheard attempting to help Ponton, to no avail.

“Mr. Ponton, I believe you have a filter turned on in your video settings,” Ferguson says.

In perhaps the best moment of the video, Ponton attempts to reassure the judge that he is in fact not a cat.

“I’ve got my assistant here, and she’s trying to remove it but uh… I’m prepared to go forward with it,” Ponton says. “I’m here live. I’m not a cat.”

The video has already been viewed more than 1.6 million times and counting.

In a statement to Vice, Ponton said the mistake happened after he opted to use his secretary’s computer.

“I was using her computer and for some reason she had that filter on. I took it off and replaced it with my face,” he said. “It was a case involving a man trying to exit the United States with contraband and contraband cash. All it was was a mistake. It was taken off and we had the hearing as normal.”

Ferguson even referenced the viral incident in a jovial tweet not long after.

“IMPORTANT ZOOM TIP: If a child used your computer, before you join a virtual hearing check the Zoom Video Options to be sure filters are off,” Ferguson tweeted. “This kitten just made a formal announcement on a case in the 394th (sound on).”

The incident is just one of a growing number of Zoom-related mishaps as millions of people across the globe find themselves working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Quarantine Reflections

My Good Time Stories

We all know how much impact the quarantine and all the time that we have spent “locked down” has had on us. Days seem to melt together, and, on occasions, time just seems to slow down.

I came across the following thoughts from a friend of mine. Some of them are funny and some will make you sit back and think. Whatever the case…enjoy.

***************

I hope they give us two weeks’ notice before sending us back out into the real world.  I think we’ll all need the time to become ourselves again.  And by “ourselves” I mean lose 10 pounds, cut our hair and get used to not drinking at 9:00 a.m.

These Guys Wrote the Perfect Song for the Price Gouger Stuck with 18,000 Bottles of Sanitizer

On March 1, the day after the first coronavirus death in the United States, Matt and Noah Colvin saw an opportunity to profit. Over the next three days, the Colvin brothers took a 1,300-mile road trip across Tennessee and into Kentucky, filling a U-Haul truck with thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer and thousands of packs of antibacterial wipes.

Their plan was to sell the items at inflated prices on Amazon, a price gouging tactic resellers like to call ‘retail arbitrage‘. Then in response to growing criticism from regulators and customers, Amazon and eBay (who also own Kijiji) cracked down, banning price gougers from their marketplace during the current pandemic.

Check out the New York Times article and interview with local tv news station below, that has set many people off:

 

The viral news story has drawn sharp criticism online and these two friends even wrote a song about the man, who probably regrets doing an interview about his pandemic-profiteering business… all while wearing a shirt that says: Family Man, Family Business
