Turns out selling cat memes is a purr-fect opportunity for entrepreneurs

What’s the next big opportunity for budding entrepreneurs? How about selling memes? Apparently, there’s a lot of money to be made there.

Take, for example, the Nyan Cat.

The Nyan Cat was actually a YouTube video that was uploaded back in 2011 and yes, if you’ve looked at the link you’re reading that right: it has more than 185m views. The video was of an animated cartoon cat with a Pop-Tart as its body flying through the air trailing a rainbow … and accompanied by a Japanese song playing in the background. Yes, it’s bizarre, but it was and to this day remains a popular meme used by many for social media posts.

According to an Artnet report, the meme made news this past week after a digital recreation was sold on the online crypto art platform Foundation for 300 Ether (Ethereum is a digital currency not unlike Bitcoin). The value as of then? About $600,000.

Yes, someone paid more than half a million dollars for a digital image of a cat with a Pop-Tart body flying through the air. And we’re in a recession.

What made this sale special is that it highlighted the possibilities of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs. Mashable’s Jack Morse said that these are “unique digital items authenticated on the blockchain that are selling for upwards of hundreds of dollars”. There are digital workplaces like Rarible and the aforementioned Foundation that sell these pieces of art and they can do so because NFT technology allows the artwork to be unique and identifiable. What’s even more enticing is that, because these tokens are digital and permanently associated with the artwork, artists can potentially also get a piece of any future resales.

The meme’s creator, Chris Torres, was – as you can imagine – pleased. “Thanks for believing in Nyan Cat all these years,” he gushed on Twitter. “I hope this inspires future artists to get into #NFT universe so they can get proper recognition for their work!”

Apparently, other entrepreneurial artists and digital selling platforms are also getting into the game. Foundation has only been around for a few weeks and has already sold more than $1m of digital art. And the market has heated up so much that even the well-known auction house Christie’s has entered into the sale of these digital items and will be featuring the work of Mike Winkelmann, otherwise known as Beeple, who recently sold more than $3.5m of his token-encrypted work in a single weekend last year.

All of this means opportunity and the chance to make some money in the art world. “To be able to say that I’m the collector who actually owns and is a patron of this artist carries a certain kind of prestige that is really appealing to people,” Lindsay Howard, Foundation’s head of community, told the Verge. “You also get to directly support an artist, and I think that is really exciting for people.”

So who would pay $600,000 for a digital meme? Why, it’s none other than someone or something called “oxy7eb2...3f6b”. Of course, it’s that person/persons. I should have guessed. What a character! It is the mysteriously dark world of digital, right?

All of this is a great financial opportunity for entrepreneurial artists and the art investors and platforms who support them. And who am I to judge what is art or not? I know nothing of that. But, as a business owner, I do know something of risk. And, given the volatile nature of digital currencies (not to mention digital art) I do have some advice for Chris Torres and other entrepreneurs who are operating in this wild, wild world:

Please. Seriously consider converting that $600,000 into something a little more stable – at least for now. A nice savings bond, perhaps?

Seems an Internet-famous feline has been scratching around L.A.'s glittering litterbox of movie stars. We've heard that Hollywood changes people. This just in, it also changes cats.

"Grumpy Cat," the Internet's most dependably surly kitty meme," has changed the tune of her meow and finally said "YES!" to something — the possibility of a promising film career. 

According to Deadline, this salty sourpuss could be the next Hollywood sweetheart.

It's a properly functioning reflex that questions the merits of morphing a meme into a movie. However, there is proven treasure in the chest of board games, amusement park rides, arcade classics, kids toys and other alt-medium products that have have found a second home in Hollywood.

And, given the stale cabinet of sequels, threequels, prequels, reboots, remakes, do-overs, and "The College Years" that have assaulted our screens for decades, we should probably encourage the untraditional sourcing.

Reports Deadline:

More depressing news for humans who can’t get a Hollywood movie made. Grumpy Cat, the cranky-faced kitty voted Meme of the Year at the 2013 Webby Awards, has a shot at getting her famous sourpuss on the big screen.

Broken Road’s Todd Garner and Sean Robins, and Grumpy Cat’s reps (manager Ben Lashes and rep Al Hassas) have teamed up to produce and assemble a package for a Garfield-like feature film with the famous frowning feline at the center. Here, Grumpy Cat (real name Tardar Sauce) will be given the power of speech. 

"This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy," Garner told Deadline. "You read all of the memes and the comments, and one is funnier than the next. We think we can build a big family comedy around this character."

The cat's officialFacebook pageis slinking toward 1,000,000 "Likes" (952,700 likes at the time of publication) and the officialYouTube channelhas logged upwards of 20 million views and 121,000 subscribers. 

Hopefully not letting any cats out of any (sustainable, reusable) bags, Buzzfeed has clawed off a Top 10 list of possible story lines for our begrudgingly well-groomed protagonist. A short blurb accompanies each masterpiece-in-waiting back on the original post Buzzfeed post:

  • Fall 2019 has given us a change of season and a brand new meme: "Woman yelling at a cat," otherwise known as "the cat meme."
  • The viral photo is a mashup of a blonde woman yelling at a confused looking white cat sitting in front of a plate of vegetables.
  • After seeing the meme everywhere, checked in with titular "woman," Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alumTaylor Armstrong, who shared her reaction to the viral meme.

The leaves are falling, the first real snowfall of the year has hit certain parts of the world, and the internet has a new meme it's fallen in love with. Picture it: Two images, side by side. One features a teary-eyed woman angrily yelling, another captures a particularly angry looking cat. Yes, the internet is in love with the Woman Yelling At A Cat meme; the phenomenon even made its way into a few Halloween costumes.

But what is the cat meme, exactly, and how did it become so popular? Well, firstly, the meme's virality is due to simple happenstance, of course. The images had each been used individually as memes themselves—and both have separate origins—but once put together, they became magic.

So if—like we were—you're wondering how this all came about, we've broken it down for you, finding some of the internet's best examples, and even talking to the woman in question, Taylor Armstrong. Here's everything we know about the woman yelling at a cat meme you're seeing all over your social media feeds.

Alright, where did this "woman yelling at a cat" meme start?

The human half of the meme finds its origins from a 2011 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where then-cast member Taylor Armstrong found herself in an emotional confrontation with Camille Grammer, as fellow housewife Kyle Richards attempts to calm her down.

"During the screaming scene, I was truly terrified for my life and my safety. When I look back now, that life seems like someone else’s," Armstrong tells "I have healed and grown so much stronger since that moment and am in such a happy place with my husband and daughter. I never imagined of all my TV moments, that would be the one to become a 'meme' sensation."

While this may be a way to heal from a painful experience, Armstrong understands why she's prime for memeable moments and GIFs. "I think I am easily meme-able because I can be very animated, especially when I am upset! There is quite a bit of Housewivescontent of me screaming, crying, eye rolling and laughing to choose from. I guess I created the Taylor gallery for memers to use and create."

As for the other half of the meme starring the angry white cat, its origins began on Tumblr, when user deadbefordeath posted a photograph of a white cat with a bewildered expression sitting in a chair in front of a plate of vegetables. The caption back then was: "he no like vegetals."

This content is imported from Tumblr. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

And before you ask—yes, "the cat" has a name: Smudge. And you can follow him on Instagram.

When did the cat meme go viral?

It looks like back in May, the first version of the meme appeared on Twitter:

But the conventional form of the meme—which features the image of Armstrong and Smudge expressing differing opinions, also known as "object labeling" in the meme lexicon—first took off on Reddit, the breeding ground for meme culture.

Armstrong told that she first saw the meme back in August. "It was 'Boomers' 'Millennials' and 'Gen X' featuring Megan Mullally from Will & Grace. Her character, Karen, is fabulous, so it was fun to share a meme moment with her. She and I were featured in a fun Halloween one also. I thought the first scream meme would be the last...I never expected all the future memes to come."

This content is imported from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Part of the reason for the meme's virality is due to Armstrong's engagement with people who tag her in their social media posts—and in particular, this clapback when she went uncredited for her work in meme history:

She'll even interact with you IRL if she runs into you in costume: "The fact that people have come up with so many versions is pretty amazing. I ran into someone at a Halloween party dressed as the cat so, of course, we took the photo op for me to 'yell' at him."

Can I see some of the best ones woman yelling at a cat memes?

Of course you can! We've gathered some of the best of the best for you to chuckle at:

Armstrong was even willing to let us know which is her personal favorite. "There are so many creative ones, it’s hard to choose a 'best of,' but the baseball altercation between me as the Washington Nationals’ Manager and the Cat as the umpire made me laugh. The fact that it came out the day after the game was so timely. The Terminator version is another 'best of.'"

This content is imported from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

"When the memes started, I would share or respond on social media because I thought they were creative and funny," Armstrong shared. "When the 'woman yelling at cat' meme came about, I was puzzled. Kyle Richards and I have been exchanging the memes sent to us, laughing and scratching our heads as to why."

This content is imported from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

But Armstrong has one more thing to let you know, in case you were concerned she and Smudge had real beef: "It’s all in good fun and—by the way...I do like cats."

We have yet to hear from Smudge the cat, but once we do, we'll update for comment. But we have a feeling Smudge might be too famous now to talk to

Cats, Cats, Cats

Caroline Derosiers:

It was interesting to think about clicking casual and fun descriptions, because they ended up being very different than how I would actually describe them.

Will Butler:

That's my friend Caroline, and she runs a company called Scribely. Scribely literally describes images. It helps with SEO, and accessibility, and I was complaining to her recently because as a blind person, I don't really get to participate in meme culture. Memes might not seem that important if you're blind but the truth of the matter is, they're the new water cooler talk. Instead of talking about what you saw in theaters this weekend, you're talking about which spicing memes tickled your fancy. So I asked Caroline, would she put her skills to use to describe some of the internet's best memes? It wouldn't be a conversation about the internet unless we talked about cats, so we kicked it off with five of the best cat memes. Here's what Caroline had to say about describing a meme, and how it's different than making an alt tag.

Caroline Derosiers:

For the quick fun casual descriptions, you do have to make some assumptions about whether you know about this particular popular meme already. Kind of getting right to the punchline.

Will Butler:

Memes are all about like infer to meaning, right?

Caroline Derosiers:

Exactly, and they get passed around and talked about. They're funny because you've already seen that same photo or it's a different version of that same photo. So they're kind of just by nature supposed to be repetitious. First of all, cat memes are wonderful and they may be like my favorite type of meme out there. I don't know if it's because I have a cat or because they're just particularly... Cats are particularly funny and weird, but I think that they're some of the funniest ones I've seen.

Will Butler:

There is this weird thing with cats, right? Where they don't have eyebrows or something. This is what I've heard.

Caroline Derosiers:


Will Butler:

Correct me if I'm wrong here, so they can't express themselves?

Caroline Derosiers:

yeah. They're kind of neutral, but then they've got these wide eyes that can be very expressive depending on the cat breed, so I think they just look silly.

Will Butler:

So you brought me some cat memes today. What have we got?

Caroline Derosiers:

Okay, so I have five and I'm saving the best for last, because there's a really funny and timely one that I want to talk about at the very end. First I'll do like the quick and casual description, and then we can kind of like pause and talk about that, and then maybe we'll do like more of a technical description. That was what we were thinking for this week.

Will Butler:

Yeah, the casual and then the alt tag, I love it.

Caroline Derosiers:

Okay, so the first one is a closeup of a wide-eyed Grumpy Cat, if you're happy and you know it, I don't care.

Will Butler:

Classic cat attitude.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, so do you know Grumpy Cat?

Will Butler:


Caroline Derosiers:

Okay, so Grumpy Cat is like an internet celebrity and if you didn't know Grumpy Cat, then that click and casual description wouldn't make sense.

Will Butler:

Oh, so you're saying, a wide-eyed Grumpy Cat was a capital G, capital C?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yes, yeah.

Will Butler:

Interesting. That totally went right over my head. So who is Grumpy Cat, and how do we drill down into the look and feel of Grumpy Cat?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, so some history on Grumpy Cat. Back in I think it was 2012 or something, the owner of Grumpy Cat also known as Tardar Sauce, posted a picture and this cat is just particularly funny-looking because the facial appearance of this cat, it has a naturally furrowed brow and an underbite. So it always looks like it's grumpy. Any photo of this cat looks grumpy. So the internet just went wild with pictures of this cat and it became a bit of a celebrity so much so that the owner actually quit her job at Red Lobster to manage Grumpy Cat full-time. And was just creating all these memes and videos, and it totally took off as a meme, and just all over the internet.

Will Butler:

Finally, a cat that has an expressive face.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yes, and it's because actually, and I didn't notice I was reading up on Grumpy Cat, Grumpy Cat actually has a form of dwarfism and is much smaller than a normal cat and I did not know that. And I think maybe that contributed, but I didn't realize that Grumpy Cat was born that way and not all cats in that breed have that look.

Will Butler:

And who knows if that's why he's grumpy.

Caroline Derosiers:

I don't know. But yeah, unfortunately-

Will Butler:

And maybe we may never know exactly why he is grumpy.

Caroline Derosiers:

I know. So for a more technical description, you would get more into actually describing Grumpy Cat who is a mixed breed, mostly white and dark brown fur, a short haired cat with light blue eyes, and she has a naturally furrowed brow and frown making her appear grumpy. And in this photo, she's laying in someone's lap, belly up and her head is cradled in the person's hand, and it looks like she's looking up at her owner like she's totally pissed, she's got this expression and then you've got the tagline overlaid there. So it's like looking up at your owner and saying, "If you're happy and you know it, I don't care."

Will Butler:

Okay, yeah. And with that whole backdrop on the Grumpy Cat story it means a lot more to me now, beautiful. So what's number two?

Caroline Derosiers:

Okay. All right. So, funny casual description, a chevy gray cat with a vacant yet cheery expression, me realizing I tuned out and I'm now lost in the conversation.

Will Butler:

Okay, so the cat for all of our Zoom meetings, yeah.

Caroline Derosiers:

And I think we could all relate to this, that's why it's funny. It's like when your mind kind of trails, but then the person you're talking to is very passionately trying to explain themselves, and you're like, "Oh my gosh, I'm so lost, I have absolutely no clue," you're saying, "So I need to overcompensate with this pleasant interested expression to make up for it."

Will Butler:

Yep. And I actually am finding with these, because I can't see these, it's helpful for me to try them on my own face, right? I'm sitting here and I'm like, "Okay, vacant, but cheery," and I'm kind of putting on this face and I'm like, "Oh yeah, I can imagine what that looks like."

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, exactly, [inaudible 00:08:26] this face, again, this cat is achieving some sort of expression, which may be partially due to the way its hair is cut, and the fact that it is a bit overweight, and its mouth is open it kind of looks like a smile, but its mouth is just open, but they've achieved an expression in this cat's face.

Will Butler:

He's kind of look like, "Uh-huh."

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, but like keep going, please.

Will Butler:

Yeah. You know, I wonder if sometimes just certain noises are helpful in describing memes. That's like the beauty of the podcast that you can't do at an alt tag is you can make the noise of someone who's making that face.

Caroline Derosiers:

Right. Yeah. That's true.

Will Butler:

So what would our alt tag look like for a very [inaudible 00:09:19] picture?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, so there are definitely more funny aspects about these photos. So the technical description would be a three quarter shot of a pleasantly plump, light gray cat. So large that its folds nearly conceal a harness attached to its chest and back. The cat is on a leash and fixed on a wood deck, mouth hanging open, pink tongue out, and eyes staring vacantly into the distance. Me Realizing I tuned out, and I'm now lost in the conversation.

Will Butler:

That is so much more information than I would get from just someone telling me about it.

Caroline Derosiers:

Right. So, I think it's quite unusual, but the cat's in a harness and on a leash which is just funny, and you'd barely even see it because this cat is so large, but you know it's there because you can see this leash attached to it. So it just kind of adds a fun little element that you'd pretty quickly notice, and would take that meme up a little bit.

Will Butler:

That's amazing. Okay, number three.

Caroline Derosiers:

Now this tagline, actually, to be honest took me a minute to understand, but then once I got it I was like, "Oh, that's funny." So you may have to take a minute with the tagline but the funny casual description is, a big orange fish swallows a little white screaming cat. My mom, sleep tight don't let the bedbugs bite, me after accidentally sleeping loose.

Will Butler:

Okay. So I immediately get the, me after sleeping loose thing, like sleep tight, that's funny. But what is it, orange fish is swallowing a cat?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yes. So this is what I feel like, you have to get into a little bit more detail because it's a crazy image. I don't even know how they got this, but the fish that we're talking about it's this large orange stuffed cartoonish fish, like a stuffed animal toy. And it's twice the size of this cat and the cat is mostly in the mouth of this fish with his arms out of the mouth and then screaming and shutting its eyes really tight. It looks like it's in absolute terror, and also the cat is a little bit blurry so it looks like it's kind of wrestling around with this fish or something. But it's a funny scene, it's like it's being swallowed whole or carried away.

Will Butler:

This sounds more like an acid trip than a meme.

Caroline Derosiers:

It's kind of disturbing but funny and also I was thinking bedbugs to a fish or to a cat, bedbugs to a cat would be like this giant fish.

Will Butler:

Well, and there's something funny too because it's like cats eat fish, right? Do they? Yeah.

Caroline Derosiers:


Will Butler:

And so, it's the fish is eating a-

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, like your food completely turning on you, and being larger than you, and swallowing you whole.

Will Butler:

... Wow. And it's obviously just like sleep tight, why do we even say sleep tight in the first place?

Caroline Derosiers:


Speaker 3:

And I guess, for most of these memes we are the cat, right? That's the idea behind these cat memes, it seems like.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah. Like you're putting yourself in the cat shoes, or you felt exactly the way that cat it appears to feel, yeah.

Will Butler:

All right.The apathy, the grumpiness, the fear, whatever it is that the cat is experiencing we're experiencing along with it. I can get with that.

Caroline Derosiers:


Will Butler:

Wow. Amazing. Okay. That was a psychedelic meme number three, thank you for challenging me. What do we [inaudible 00:13:40] for number four?

Caroline Derosiers:

Okay. I really like this meme. It was sent to me a few months ago, and I'm still laughing about it and I hope that the humor comes across because it's such a good one. But The fun and casual description is, a series of three photos, each with the same cat in a red cap at different levels of feeling nice. And the tagline is, when you have a nice hat and you feel nice.

Will Butler:

So this is just nice all around?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, and it's just so cute. It's just the most adorable cat, and it's just like a montage of three different photos of this cat wearing this red baseball cap. And they're all different pleasant expressions. The first one, the cat is smiling, walking towards you, an eye is squinting and it's like mid meow, very cute. And then the second, the cat is kind of sitting in repose on its dark fur blanket, and has this happy squinty eyes stoner face, and the brim of the hat is flipped up and back giving it kind of this dippy expression. And then the last one, the cat has this like, it's such an earnest expression and its mouth is slightly open and turned up in an easy smile, and the brim of the cap is off center, and it's just a very cute photo.

Will Butler:

Wow, beautiful. And tell me a little bit more about this hat.

Caroline Derosiers:

It looks like it's kind of like a vintage cat, actually. Like maybe the owners had it from, or it's like of sentimental value. It's actually like, even though it appears oversized, the brand is completely all the way across this cat's head, it actually somehow is fitting. Like they must have it tied in the back or something, but it fits the cat's head.

Will Butler:

Wow. I didn't realize that there were memes that were just purely positive vibes.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah. I mean, that's why I love it. Sometimes memes are just uplifting where you're like, "Yeah."

Will Butler:

It's like current mood, happy, imagine that.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, everything's fine.

Will Butler:

Okay. And number five, is this the one where I have to play the audio?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, but we'll play it at the end.

Will Butler:


Caroline Derosiers:

So this happened this week, actually, so it's very current. I don't know if you heard about it, and maybe I shouldn't even provide a backstory at all, maybe I'll do that later. I'll just do the quick and casual first, and then I'll kind of explain it. So the description is, the fluffy white kitten filter that took down Texas attorney Rod Ponton this week. The kitten is making a worried side long glance.

Will Butler:

I did hear about this. Okay, wait, this is beautiful because I was wondering about this all week long. I'm sorry, I don't mean to stop your flow, but it must've been on Tuesday, my friend played this video and I heard the video audio, I heard the content, but I didn't know what it looked like, and because we were in the middle of something I didn't have the heart to ask him to describe it to me. So this is my big chance.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yes. Awesome. Well, everybody here was so serendipitous and was like, "Yes, we're doing cat memes, and this is going around the internet just in the same week so it's perfect timing." Like that moment, that cat filter was turned into a meme, and the kitten is making this side long glance. And the tagline someone put with it is, after a poor showing by his legal team today, Trump introduces his new attorney.

Will Butler:

Yes. And you know what's it's funny? I thought that this was, because it came out roughly the same day that the Senate impeachment trial started, and so when I heard it I thought it was a clip from the Senate impeachment trial, but this isn't, right? This is just some random lawyer, right?

Caroline Derosiers:

Oh, that's so funny that you thought about that because, yeah, I mean, the attorney is weak, it was an embarrassing show and this is very much the same and very awkward. So I'm not surprised that you thought that they were the same person.

Will Butler:

Yeah, wait. Okay, so when we play the audio, this is an audio meme basically, right? But there's a visual element to it too so what does this thing look like? Basically, if I remember correctly from the audio, the lawyer is in court appearing virtually, and there's something on his face, or on his head.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, so it's one of those filters that turns you into something. So he's been turned into this fluffy, white kitten and as his eyes and mouth are moving, the kittens eyes and mouth are moving. And it's funny because the eyes are darting from side to side, like very wide-eyed and nervous. And the mouth is moving as he's talking it's moving. And you have to picture it like, howdy kitten eyes too, it's a very small cute cat, and he's trying to figure out how to turn off this filter but he can't. So he's just kind of struggling with it, this poor man, so awkward and embarrassing, and then the internet gets hold of it and it's all over. So, I mean, we have to laugh at ourselves in moments like this I feel like, but it was really funny.

Will Butler:

Okay. And I'm going to pull it up here. Do you know the backstory of this at all, were you able to figure out who this guy is, I don't even know if that's possible?

Caroline Derosiers:

He's a Texas attorney that's just appearing for a hearing. It's a very professional call. It's like he's just logged on and then everyone's telling him, "Oh, you seem to have some sort of filter on." So he's trying to adjust his video settings. He got off his last Zoom call with his grandkids or something, and he's trying to make them laugh and he forgot to take it off, and then went into work like Monday, Tuesday, and it's still on.

Will Butler:

Okay. So I'm pulling it up on my screen and remember, I can't really see this. So we're just going off the audio here, but let's take a listen to the video meme of the week.

Speaker 3:

Mr. Ponton I believe you have a filter turned on in the video settings you might want to take a look...

Mr Ponton:

We're trying to...Can you hear me, judge?

Speaker 3:

I can hear you. I think it's a filter and-

Mr Ponton:

Yes, and we've been trying to remove it. I've got my assistant here she's trying to but I'm prepared to go forward with this. I'm here your honor, but I'm not a cat.

Speaker 5:

I'm not a cat.

Speaker 3:

... I can see that. I think if you click the up arrow next to this...

Will Butler:

Oh, that was the whole video?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah. Oh my god, I've probably watched it five times in a row.

Will Butler:

Oh my god, I love how he says, "I'm not a cat," like don't worry. Let me ask you, is there someone else in the frame too?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah, it looks like they're recording the session or something and so, the other people on the call have their video turned on, and they're appearing on the screen, like a Zoom recording.

Will Butler:

So there's a defendant in there or something?

Caroline Derosiers:

Yeah. I mean, there must be. I mean, there's two other gentlemen I think on the video, and one doesn't say anything at all, and the other is trying to help the attorney figure it out.

Will Butler:

And now I've pulled up the visual and I'm zooming in on it so that I can read it and it says, recording of this hearing or live stream is prohibited, violation laws may constitute contempt of court and result in a fine of up to $500 and a jail term of up to 180 days, which really makes you realize that this is a real court hearing.

Caroline Derosiers:

Yes, it is. And I think probably my favorite line from that video is, "I'm prepared to move forward with it," I think that's so funny. He's prepared, if they can't figure out how to get this filter off, he's prepared to proceed as the fluffy white kitten [inaudible 00:23:30].

Will Butler:

Oh my God. Well, Caroline, you made my week and I am now prepared to proceed as the fluffy white kitten, and I hope that everyone else has a great week as well. Thank you so much for doing this, and if anyone has their alt tag needs, go check out Scribely, right?

Caroline Derosiers:


Will Butler:

Thanks again, and we'll see you all next week.

Caroline Derosiers:

Thanks everyone.
