Blue Bloods: BYU Face Masks During Covid

A line of five people wear BYU face masks during COVID. “Nothing’s getting between you and the good stuff!” is said of the leftmost woman wearing a mask called “The Cougartail Inhale,” which has an extension long enough to hold her doughnut. “No beard card required for this mask!” is said of a man wearing “The Brigham Beard,” a mask with a large artificial beard attached to the bottom. The woman in the middle, mumbling incoherently through “The Rise and Shout . . . (and Shout Some More),” is told, “Talk louder! We can’t understand a word you’re saying!” “The Cosmo” describes the mask worn by the next man, but the warning above says, “Acrobatic tricks and dance moves not included!” The rightmost man is wearing a BYU football helmet over a disposable blue face mask. Cougars are invited to wear this mask, called “The Double Face Mask,” “for that extra measure of safety (and look good while doing it!).”
