Adorably Dumb Cat Named 'Jorts' Captures Internet's Hearts
It all started with a Reddit thread where someone asked if they were in the wrong for saying 'Jorts,' a stray cat their workplace had adopted, was kinda dumb.
AITA for “perpetuating ethnic stereotypes” about Jorts? https://t.co/sC58aB3ecK pic.twitter.com/pHFeuxhoqH— Am I the Asshole? (@AITA_online) December 14, 2021
The OP also thankfully provided a cat tax photo of both Jorts and Jean.
The post quickly racked up the awards and upvoted on Reddit, and it was only a matter of time before OP provided a much-requested update to the situation.

Wow. Somebody call the CDC, we didn't need gift cards or tuition vouchers to encourage vaccine participation - apparently, all it takes is restricting access to adorable kitties.
Not surprisingly, Twitter had a field day with it and 'Jorts' even made it to the Trending list:

Reddit was also decidedly on OP's side and thoroughly amused by it all:
Here's to you, Jorts, the real Internet MVP of the day.
