Funny thing—just back from a trip to the moon last week (I do travel occasionally), after being gone for nine months or so (no sense in hurrying back). Fine trip, quite relaxing, took a load off my shoulders, made me feel lighter than air.1 Anyway, on my return, there seemed to be a lot more doctors around than usual. By the looks of it, practically every Tom, Dick, and Harry’s been promoted to doctor or nurse or dentist or something, because they’re all wearing these masks—and wouldn’t you know they won’t even step out of uniform to go to the grocery store. I consider it quite rude, of course, people speaking through that thing and expecting me to understand them. They’re probably sneering and sticking out their tongues behind that ghastly “face-cover.”
However, I have noticed a number of interesting slogans on some of these masks, and I duly noted them in my photographic memory to compile for your reading pleasure. So here you have it, the
BEST MASK SLOGANS IN THE ENGLISH-SPEAKING WORLD
or “WHAT in the WORLD were WE THINKING”
Still can’t make out exactly what some of them mean. Perhaps you astute readers can make more sense of them.2
