Let’s Pretend it’s Mardi Gras

Tuesday, 16 February 2021

Mardi Gras has been ruined for the 2nd year in a row. Thank God USA Today has a list of the 10 Best Ways to Celebrate Mardi Gras at Home.

1. Decorate in green, gold and purple.
Dare to be ugly.

2. Have a seafood boil.
Eew.

3. Eat a king cake.
Okay.

4. Mix a Mardi Gras martini.
Okay with that also. Oop, made a mistake. Let’s try another one.
Whoopsie. Did it again. Let’s make three and see which one is best. Then we’ll make that one.
Uh-oh…

5. Make a shoebox float.
Then look at it.

6. Learn some Cajun French.
Gitcha gitcha gris-gris gumbo yaya. Done.

7. Snack on some MoonPies.
Got it.

8. See some house floats.
Mardi Gras without the flashers, but a good excuse to keep your Christmas lights up.

9. Dress up your dog.
No. It embarrasses you and annoys the dog.

10. Take a virtual tour of Mardi Gras World.
It’s kinda cool in a 2nd grade field trip kinda way, but it’s virtual so it’s more like shopping for mattress covers online.

Enough of that nonsense. Let’s do this instead.

 

Really?

I received 10 unordered face masks from the Association of the United States Navy (AUSN) today. They’re promotional, and include a request for donations.

Made in China.

FASHION MASK
Executive Standard FZ/IT 73049-2014
Safety Class B ( it’s can contact with skin directly)
Fashion dust protection, sun protection thermal mask (not medical mask)
Attention This product can be used with multiple times, washable;
No protection against toxic gases
Effect: please use with caution for skin allergy

Typos are as they appear on the package.

Should I burn them?


Update: Here’s the response from AUSN:

Sir,
I apologize for the packaging. In response to our COVID-19 survey which showed that the majority of our members were in need of PPE gear. We had hired a veteran owned company in Illinois to do the production and distribution of the masks. It was not until we received the tracking numbers once they were mailed to our membership that we realized they were not coming from the USA. They do in fact have the ability to insert a N95 filter which would increase the level of protection if desired further protection against the virus.
Thank for your understanding.

Jan, Jan, Jan…

Most of these were done as experiments in photoshoppery and to post elsewhere as nonverbal snarky commentary. If you like ’em, steal ’em. If you don’t, meh. Click on any image to enlarge.
