colour, Use your melon

Use your melon

10 MASKS

I read somewhere, that to ward off COVID-19 we need to follow the Three “W”s: wear a mask, wash your hands and watch your distance. Technically, three “W”s make six “U”s and I think that’s too many letters, so I’ve condensed it to one simple U—Use your melon.

A few months ago, wearing a mask in public would have seemed bizarre to many of us. Today we have become accustomed to this symbol of the strange pandemic times we are living through. This said, there are some that feel they are exempt from following along. In their words, they ‘are not sheep.’ Wearing a mask supposedly impedes on their civil rights. A recent tweet from Jason Alexander juxtaposed the pandemic and the WWII bombings of England. Londoners were asked to turn off their lights at night so that enemy bombers wouldn’t have a clear target. No Londoner was recorded saying, “it is my right to have lights on” and if any did think that, thankfully platforms the likes of twitter did not exist to cement that in the history books. They worked together to protect each other against the enemy.

Maybe it’s harder for some to wrap their head around this situation because the enemy is invisible and therefore the consequences are seemingly not tangible, but we need to do the same thing. It’s a fairly simple formula; wearing a face mask limits the tiny, unseen viral foe from being propelled into the air where it can potentially infect other people.

So what kind of mask should you wear? The sky is the limit. You can wear practically any, as long as it covers your mouth and nose. $2 on a single use, $15 on a cloth multi-pack or over $100 on a designer mask. The choice is up to you. Amongst our ten, we’ve shown some of the classic go-to’s, some wacky ones and some that we most certainly do not recommend. Whatever you do, be safe and have fun.
