A Mask is Like a Concealed-Carry Firearm

Remember my post from last week? About what a wasteland social media is now? Well I still think that, but I at least can get good material sometimes. Some discussions that I’ve seen float by my feed this week have led me to compile a list.

Use this list to stimulate your thought processes. Share it around. Come up with your own. This is just for fun – remember how we used to laugh at stuff?

So without further ado I present,

Dr LateBloomer’s Top Ten Ways that a Mask is like a Concealed-Carry Gun

10- People get really judgey about them.

9- People who don’t like them are often full of misinformation.

8- People who do like them can sometimes be overconfident in their ability to use one effectively.

7- Both have the “potential” to protect yourself and others. 

6- Once donned, excess handling should be minimized. STOP TOUCHING IT!

5- They should never be banned, but making them mandatory can be problematic.

4- They are not magic talismans.

3- Both “should” change they way you interact with others.

2- They require careful, regular cleaning to maintain effectiveness.

And the number one reason that a mask is like a concealed-carry gun is…

1- It is better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it.

There you go. Discuss amongst yourselves.

Thank you, you’ve been a great audience.

Don’t forget to tip your waitress … oh wait, I forgot.
