As the days of wearing face masks in public drag on, with no end in sight, we could all use some comedic relief. Of course, there’s nothing funny about the necessity of wearing a face mask: They’re one of the most effective tools we have for slowing the spread of COVID-19. But finding a funny face mask can help things feel a little less dystopian.
If you’ve held off on buying a reusable mask because you figured you wouldn’t need one for long (remember wishful thinking?) or find yourself smiling at people in public before remembering they can’t see your mouth, consider one of these funny, on-the-nose masks. Funny slogans aside, all of these funny face masks, for both kids and adults, are made of multiple layers of fabric, cover the nose and mouth, and secure to the head via ear loops or ties. The best face masks, funny or not, have spots for filters, as well as metal nose pieces, which allow users to bend and contour the mask to their face and eliminate gaps, aka germ escape holes. Just remember the people staring at you and your funny mask are probably smiling under their masks.
