Accidental cat filter turns press conference live stream into a meme

Accidental cat filter turns press conference live stream into a memeIn something of a ridiculous and yet lighthearted story, a Pakistani politician's press briefing with journalists recently became comedic fodder after a cat filter was applied to the faces of individuals being recorded via Facebook live. The incident, which was attributed to human error, showcased regional minister Shaukat Yousafzai — and others — with cat ears and whiskers while talking about otherwise serious topics.The cat filter was live for a few minutes before someone noticed it and promptly removed it. But for a few glorious minutes last Friday, viewers were witness to an event seemingly lifted out of a kids-version of Black Mirror.The Guardian reports:> It was several minutes before organisers realised that the minister had acquired pointy ears. When one of his moustached party colleagues began to speak, looking earnest and holding a pen, he too was transformed into a cat.> > Party followers watching online immediately started making jokes at the expense of Pakistan's provincial Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government. They offered up a whole series of feline puns.Hardly a surprise, folks on Twitter had a field day with the minor debacle. And truth be told, using photo filters during all political events might actually persuade more people to become politically active.https://twitter.com/nailainayat/status/1139583166115540992All told, it's been interesting to see how quickly filters have evolved. Back during the early days of Instagram, for example, photo filters were relatively straight forward and simply involved adding some nice tonal effects to photos. These days, with Snapchat leading the way, photo and video filters have transformed dramatically. Today, filters have become incredibly quirky and now exist across a multitude of social networking sites and apps.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme about women and it backfired spectacularlyDonald Trump Jr. might want to hold off sharing Twitter memes for a bit while he recovers from the internet dragging him.Following the State of the Union, the president's son decided to tweet a meme about the Democratic women of Congress on Wednesday, who wore suffragette white to the address to make a powerful visual statement.Trump Jr. tweeted the meme — a photo of the women with the words "NOT ONE AMERICAN FLAG AMONG THEM" across it — to his 3.3 million followers on Wednesday, adding, "Speaks for itself and no one is at all surprised."> Speaks for itself and no one is at all surprised. pic.twitter.com/kLoJzMmY10> > — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 6, 2019SEE ALSO: Stephen Colbert breaks down where we're at with Trump's State of the Union addressAfter tweeting the meme, many people challenged Trump Jr. by sharing a photograph he shared of his own family right before the State of the Union address.

Someone brought an IRL World Cup meme to a soccer match

Someone brought an IRL World Cup meme to a soccer matchThe U.S., along with Canada and Mexico, will co-host the World Cup in 2026. This means it has a good chance of getting an automatic bid for the tournament, even if the team doesn't actually qualify. Fun loophole, right? And considering the U.S. men's team didn't qualify this year, it's a pretty exciting idea for American soccer fans. So exciting, in fact, that the idea has taken on a miniature meme life of its own, courtesy of Roll Safe. SEE ALSO: World Cup opening game proved a little tricky for people with colour blindness By this, we mean that everyone is making the same joke. USA: Can’t miss qualifying for the World Cup if you host it pic.twitter.com/lxfJoYj3Lo — Michael Putzel (@putzelmike) June 13, 2018 can’t miss the World Cup if you host it #WorldCup2026 pic.twitter.com/PrLbWcSXmA — KP (@KyleVeltre) June 13, 2018 Can’t miss the World Cup if you auto qualify as a host pic.twitter.com/L96kBTwtPt — Victor Andersen (@VictorChermas) June 13, 2018 But one soccer fan took things a step further. At a New York Red Bulls match on Wednesday (that is soccer, in case you were wondering), Joseph Mandil took this photo of the meme in the IRL wild. It later climbed to the top of r/sports on Reddit. The timing makes sense — the U.S.'s co-hosting gig had just been announced, so enthusiasm was running high. Still, a whole
sign? That is dedication. See y'all in 2026. WATCH: Artistic cycling is a real sport

Trump made a video on Yanny vs. Laurel, and this meme is officially dead

Trump made a video on Yanny vs. Laurel, and this meme is officially deadWhy won't government institutions leave memes alone? The Yanny vs. Laurel debate took a dark turn when the U.S. Air Force thought it would be a good idea to use it in a now-deleted tweet that bragged about repressing a Taliban offensive.  SEE ALSO: What Yanny vs. Laurel taught us: We yearn to be divided But the White House killed the meme for good when it released a video of staffers dividing into Team Yanny and Team Laurel. Think this is fake news? We can assure you that unfortunately, this is very real. Here's the video: Ivanka Trump is definitely on Team Laurel, but Kellyanne "alternative facts" Conway isn't
too loyal to her side. She proudly says, "It's Laurel," before adding, "But I could deflect and defer to Yanny if you need me to."  A little too real, Kelly. The video also includes this exchange with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, which is
really concerning considering the White House's strained relationship with the press:  Yikes.  Even Mike Pence joined the fun, robotically turning to the camera and asking, "Who's Yanny?" The real icing on the cake is President Trump himself. Seated at his desk, Trump proclaims, "I hear covfefe."  We get that it's a joke, but come on, White House. Don't you have more important things to deal with?  WATCH: Yanny or Laurel? We asked around the office and fights almost broke out.
