BERLIN, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 08: Organic sweet potatoes lie on display at a Spanish producer's stand at the Fruit Logistica agricultural trade fair on February 8, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The fair, which takes place from February 8-10, is taking place amidst poor weather and harvest conditions in Spain that have led to price increases and even rationing at supmermarkets for fresh vegetables across Europe.

She couldn’t change it back so she had to continue the meeting as a potato!

Thanks to our new socially distant “normal,” interacting with our friends and co-workers must take place online. Fortunately, there are tons of video chat programs to bring us together. For last Friday’s virtual Happy Hour, Lizet Ocampo downloaded several filters for the software to liven up the evening. It was all fun and games until Monday morning’s meeting with her employees. Ocampo couldn’t figure out how to turn the feature off, leaving her to conduct the session as a cartoon potato. A colleague shared a screencap of Spud Ocampo, which went viral, racking up over 900,000 likes. Taking it in stride, she turned it into a positive message, tweeting, “I hope folks are really taking seriously to be safe and stay planted.”
