It's Funny You Should Mask
The cartoon above is posted as a public service reminder that no matter how much we're all desperate to get back to normal life, masks are going to play a hugely important role in making that happen.
And not everything is bad about wearing a mask. For instance, many of us now appear to be only half as ugly. A piece of spinach stuck in your teeth? Who's going to know! Plus, masks give everyone a certain air of mystery and drama; just this morning, while walking our dog, a wary neighbor declared that we looked "threatening." A sentiment we tried to defuse, unsuccessfully, by sounding a loud, villainous "bwah-ha-ha!" laugh. After which, social distancing was no problem whatsoever.
Of course, if everyone is healthy at home, there's no need to wear a mask in the house (unless you're taking "playing doctor" to a kinky new level). Rather, you can just relax and spend this time with simple, shared family activities to help you beat cabin fever...

I'm starting to wish the donners lived in my neighborhood. It's been forever since we have had a good old fashioned neighborly backyard bbq. I've heard the secret is in the sauce.
I wonder if the Antifa types realize that Guy Fawkes masks are useless against COVID-19?
Oh, well, I'm sure they'll find out soon enough.
And the best fun of all? I hurry through a store in record time because I can't breathe vary well with a mask on, yay!! Gotta love asthma and allergies, so much fun...and passing out because you can't breathe is considered so tacky in public.
M. Mitchell Marmel: Shhhhhh. You'll spoil the surprise.
A piece of spinach stuck in your teeth? Who's going to know!
The world's gonna know !!! ........PopEye and I may both be some sort of sailor but spinach can stay in the friken can forever as far as I am concerned ........ Ask the Donner's .... rumor is they had 2 wagons full of spinach when the rescue party got there or at least they would have if they hadn't tried eating the wagons ....
Y'all can have my share !!!
Hey.....Hey ....... if bad teeth discouraged breeding .....ahhh .... dating.... the british would have died off long, long ago.......
The only good thing I can say about masks is no one can tell how many times I mouth “STFU” while wearing a mask
Speaking of masks, yesterday in the WSJ, of all the things they could have written about, it chose to run a 'yes, its ok' article on sex during the Wuhan virus. Reading it I wondered, are people now so dependent on 'experts' they no longer can think for themselves?
And the Orthodontist's offices have been ordered closed as well. But she's not a problem for me; a leaky mask fogs up my glasses.
How quickly the tide turns in today's world: only a month ago you'd be arrested for wearing a mask in public, now you'll be arrested in you don't. And in Virginia, responsible, law-abiding citizens today may become criminals overnight (if the governor and general assembly prevail).
@Fish Out of Water Not, seems to me. Most folks have always been afraid of non-conformity; we just have so many more ways of checking whether we're "in compliance" or not today. And don't get me started on all the people who are ready and willing(but only sometimes able) to tell us, chapter and verse, all the errors of our ways.
OK, so what are we going to term the bunch of people that result from this mess? The CV Boomers?
Edible masks, anyone?
Wow. The price of oil today went to MINUS $15 a barrel. So, when will the gas stations pay us to take their product off their hands, or at least give us a free set of drinking glasses or an orange ball to put on our antennas just for showing up?
@ Geoff King- Well where I am they won't even let you fill a "to go" mug anymore due to the COVID-19 dempanic. But you can buy one of their disposable cups, which have been sitting on the counter with god knows who coughing on them and handling them, at full price.
On another note, I needed the services of a vet this morning. None to be had. They are all staying safe and closed up shop, due to COVID-19 of course.
My friends tell me my eyes naturally look cold. So when I walk around with a mask, I notice people approaching me give me a wide berth.
I'm cool with that - less risk of exposure.

The Answer is: Coronials
@Gonzo'57: I see what you did there! Excellent!
(Duck for incoming protests of racism...)
@ Geoff: Yeah....gas prices are going down.....so what? We aren't supposed to drive anywhere here in MI so far, so what good is it? I'm sure they'll go back up when travel is allowed. The oil companies aren't going to lose.
I wonder if Antifa types realize who Guy Fawkes was?
Missouri is suing the Chinese Commie Party. May this be the first of thousands of lawsuits, but exactly how does that work? What court of law is the venue, who presides, what laws are used, and are the Chinese Commies obligate to pay anything if they "lose?"
" and are the Chinese Commies obligate to pay anything if they "lose?""
We can seize their assets, which they are buying in America at rock-bottom prices right now. The CCP is trying to buy technology and vital resources from us while we are susceptible, and if the court's judgment goes against them we have a means of redress.
"Ve haff our vays..."
Couple of days ago I mentioned to the Baroness that one of the upsides of the mask prescription was she no longer has to police her "resting bitch face". I've been rewarded with isolation time in the RV.
Oil service companies that took years to develop will be, and are being, destroyed within weeks.
Families that had to relocate to the Midland area a few years ago due to the last oil crunch, will A) go bankrupt, B) have to relocate to pull their children out of school and relocate to somewhere where a degreed breadwinner can find a job as a Walmart greeter, and C) deal with terminal depression and suicides as have so many families employed in this highly specialzed occupation. I've watched it happen twice, since the crash of 1986, when I lost my home in Louisiana after 14 years of residence there.
Funny, huh, bitch?
And when the Coronials hit the teens, they will known as the Quaranteens!
