Check out this new mask that ‘researchers’ came up with. It’s a special kind of mask, for a special kind of stupid!
I’m not sure what is more concerning, that so-called researchers get called ‘researchers’ for coming up with this bizarre mouse-looking mask or that people will of course wear them.
The nose masks — worn under a full mask with similar behind-the-ears straps — were unveiled in a demonstration video where a man and woman sit down for lunch.
In the video, the pair takes off their normal masks to reveal their nose-only gear before chowing down at an outdoor table. – New York Post
And if you are wondering how I know how people will wear it, well just check out some of these twitter responses to the video:
Looks dumb but if research shows this works, I will wear it.

Any protection is better than no protection.
Is a great start.

And this dude has really put some thought into it:
This makes sense for when eating and drinking because it reduces exposure by blocking one orifice, but I wonder if the net impact will be negative because ignorant people won't put on a regular mask again after eating/drinking. You'd have to study the behavioral impact, I think.

I really don’t know what to say, can things get any more ridiculous?
You bet, watch this space.
