Lawyer uses Zoom filter by mistake - 'I'm not a cat' - BBC News

36 555 Vistas 3,7 M

A lawyer appearing before a judge at a virtual court case via Zoom appeared on screen as a cat - after not realising a filter was switched on.
Rod Ponton was 'feline' fine as he entered the zoom call held in Texas, but should've 'paws-ed' before switching his camera on.
Rod's child had used the computer before him and left a cat filter on. Fur-real!
Trying to avoid a 'cat-astrophe', Judge Roy Ferguson quickly gave Mr Ponton a heads-up that he had appeared on the chat as a white fluffy kitten.

    I love how the I would only presume the otber lawyer just so casually looks up and smiles and laughs to himself ever so quietly, lol! I bet hes thinking to himself "yeah, im going to win this case for sure", !

    They could turn this into a TV show. Have the real lawyer do the voice for that same cat. And he can do a judge Judy type of show. Where normal people appear before the cat to have their legal disputes adjudicated. Call it Cat court

    I'm not American, I'm British. And the nearest I've got to Texas is Ames, Iowa. (I always quite liked that, because my name is Amy and my best friends call me Ames...) But whether Mr Ponton is a nice man or not, that seems to be under debate, he still made me laugh. So thanks for that.
