    The Mask Is Supposed To Go Over Your Nose Too, You Dumb-Dumbs

    You're defeating the whole purpose.

    It's definitely happened to you.

    You're walking around, mindin' your P's and Q's, wearing a mask to stop the spread of a deadly virus, and you see someone.

    Someone who looks like this:

    Why do these people do this?

    Mask-under-the-nose people: Explain yourselves.

    What made them this way?

    KEEPING THE MASK UNDER YOUR NOSE MAKES YOUR MASK NON FUNCTIONAL GO BACK INSIDE

    *Seinfeld voice* WHAT'S THE *Jerry Garcia singing live at Barton Hall on May 8, 1977 voice* DEAL????

    Went out for groceries today. Suprising amount of people who don't realize the mask doesn't work if it doesn't cover your nose too.

    This defeats the whole point of wearing a mask.

    No one wants to catch your nose germs.

    Your disgusting nose is supposed to be UNDER your mask!!!!!!

    The mask. GOES OVER. YOUR NOSE!

    The mask goes over your nose, everybody. Not under. OVER.

    Like, what are we even doing here?

    If you’re going to wear a mask on your chin or under your nose.... there’s really no point! 🤷‍♂️

    We gotta do better, folks.

    Wearing your mask under your nose is like putting a condom on your kids head.

    Tell those no-nosers to cover up.

    At Home Depot yesterday, sales person wearing mask hanging under her nose and mouth, the “I’ll put it on when the boss comes by,” look. Her: How can we help you today? Me: Put your mask on. She did.

    Lead by example.

    I need a mask that says “It’s supposed to cover your nose too.”

    And say it with me, gang:

    SO MANY PEOPLE WEAR THEIR MASK UNDER THEIR NOSE!

    Sheesh.
