Lawyer declares ‘I am not a cat’ to judge in Zoom filter fiasco
Just when you thought Zoom culture had brought you every embarrassing situation possible, from pantless politicians to parish council dust-ups and dildoes on shelves, it’s pulled another viral rabbit out of the hat.
Or rather, a kitten.
Lawyers (supposedly) deal in facts, but few will ever have to clarify their species to a judge.
Enter Texas lawyer Rod Ponton, whose Zoom settings meant he had to address a judge via the mouth of a very cute kitten. Unable to change the filter, he uttered a sentence that will be included in every 2021 end-of-year quiz:
‘I am not a cat.’
The judge, Roy Ferguson of Texas’s 394th judicial district, was sympathetic, replying, ‘I can see that.’
Carole Baskin is yet to comment on the matter
