Here we go again…another silly invention for the “New Normal.”

Since the Great Paradigm Shift from face masks “may stop a droplet or two” to they should be worn every flu season, the “experts” have been befuddled on how to insist that we all need to wear the magic piece of cloth that will undoubtedly end the pandemic even while we’re eating.

It’s apparently “dangerous and derogatory” content to say that cloth and surgical masks don’t really work to stop the spread of a “sometimes” airborne respiratory virus despite numerous pre-2020 studies showing that this is true.

It’s also “dangerous and derogatory” to point out that mask advocates have been making some pretty ridiculous claims in the past year.

Like these:

Because it’s always wrong to question the experts, apparently.

Here at ClashDaily, we like to live dangerously. Despite how much it triggers the “fact-checkers” we’ve repeatedly mocked any efforts to create masks to wear while eating because… well, they’re funny in their incomprehensible absurdity.

First, there was the “Pac-Man” style mask that you could open and close:

That ‘Mask You Can Wear While Eating’ Is Weapons-Grade Stupid — Here’s Why

Then there was this origami-inspired invention by a Japanese restaurant using a regular disposable mask and a napkin:

The catch with that one is that you have to blow the flap of napkin away before you can eat.

That seems…counterproductive.

Although this “air purifier” designed by former Dyson employees wasn’t intended for protection from COVID-19, but their new NosyX with their “mouth mask” can easily slide into this same category of “Why Did Someone Bother To Invent That?”

‘Nosy’ Is An Air Purifier That Fits Over Your Nose — No, This Is Not Satire

And since we’re talking about silly masks, who can forget the insanity of the Canadian school that is using The Science™  that apparently says that cutting a hole in a mask to allow a saxophone player to play their instrument is totally fine.

Now Mexican researchers are putting forward their idea…a nose-only mask that you can wear while eating and drinking!

It’s not exactly two masks, it’s more like one and a half. It’s also somehow even more pathetic.

The Mexican researchers have saved us all! Despite places with mask mandates faring no better than those without, the push to still wear masks — even for those who are fully vaccinated — continues apace.

My favorite part of that video is the end where the woman manhandles the nose mask then puts her other mask — which she appears to pick up from the ground — over the mask she’s just rubbed her grubby fingers all over. That’s totally hygienic, guys. Honest. Even if she kept the exterior mask clean, there’s no possible way that the germs from her hands could get into her respiratory system from her now-dirty nose mask which she has just enclosed with the second mask that goes over both nose and mouth…

Oh, wait…

Yeah, actually, that seems like a bad idea.

By the way, this whole discussion about mask use is based on stopping respiratory droplets, not airborne particles. The CDC says that SARS-CoV-2 is “sometimes” airborne, which means that it’s going to “sometimes” spread no matter what kind of mask or “social distancing” mitigation measures are used. Basically, we’re “sometimes” screwed.

But you’re not allowed to say that.

Just shut up and put on your mask-and-a-half, you rube!
