You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it.
The need for face masks has never been greater.
Whether you need one to slow the spread of Covid-19, or because you live in a smog filled city, or to wear over your eyes to block out reality, you need a mask.
A unique mask.
Not just because I’m trying to sell you something (if “sell” applies to things that are free), but because having a unique mask means you don’t accidentally take someone else’s gross mask. You know, the one they were using as a napkin after eating spaghetti.
But where can you find unique masks?
Ahhh, now I’m going to start selling you things. (Just kidding.)
Threadless.com, an online business that does printed shirts (and other stuff), has recently begun doing prints for masks, and to kick that off they’re running a mask design competition, where they’re going to decide the winner by vote.
So of course I entered the competition, and here’s my mask:
The Mask of Avoiding Awkward Conversation is a very special mask. Unlike your run of the mill masks which simply try to protect you from Covid-19/regular flu/smog, this mask is meant to deflect unwanted conversation. How? By making your voice so muffled no one can sustain a conversation with you.
And, of course, if you’re a Munchkin/D&D/any RPG geek, this mask also gives you a +5 to meet people of like humour and/or mind, which is always a bonus (unless, of course, you don’t want to, in which case you can just wear the mask inside out, but that’s not the point).
Of course, all of this only happens if the mask gets printed. But thankfully, all it needs to get printed is your vote.
So if you could all do me a favour and stuff the ballot box in my favour, I’d be delighted. You can vote for it here. A nice “5” would be appreciated. (Or a 4. Or a 3. Beggars can’t be choosers.)
Thanks for the support, and stay stealthy, my friends.
