Mom uses a saucepan lid secured inside a hoodie as a faux face mask

por Mari Blazer (2020-05-25)


An American woman who doesn't have any face masks got creative before a trip to her local Walmart.

The woman, who goes by Mama T on TikTok, said she was getting ready to go shopping and needed a way to protect herself and others.

Because she doesn't have masks, Mama T used what she figured was the next best thing: A saucepan lid, which she expertly kept in place with a hoodie to block her entire face.

Mama T shared the video on TikTok on April 12, and it's quickly gone viral, with about a million views so far.

She starts out by saying she is going shopping at Walmart, but 'I don't have a mask.'

Rather than going mask-free, she came up with another way to cover her nose and mouth in public.

'Gotta improvise, because the COVID ain't gonna get me, guys,' she says.

Mama T, who is wearing a hoodie, then pulls out the clear glass lid of a large saucepan. She puts the lid inside the hood of her hoodie, with the handle at the center of her face, facing outward.

She tightens the string of the hoodie to keep it in place, forming a see-through barrier between her and others — which makes her look a bit like an astronaut. 

'Gotta be prepared at all times. So Walmart, here I come,' she says.

She's not the only one to think outside the box for homemade PPE, though.

Since the pandemic began, people around the world have snapped photos of strangers in grocery stores and on public transportation wearing some truly bizarre makeshift masks.

Some have used menstrual pads, picking ones with wings that can flip up and cover their noses.

Others have made face coverings from coffee filters, plastic bottles, newspaper, and just about anything else laying around the house. 






Brilliant! Mindy Vincent designed a mask covered in penises. She said: 'When someone tells me my mask has penises on it, I kindly let them know this is how I determine they are too close'









Hottest new accessory! She said she has already worn the mask out and about 


Then there are others who have made their own face masks out of fabric, but added a funny twist. 

Mindy Vincent, a mother and therapist Heber City, Utah, designed a mask to feature a pattern of flowers and penis of different skin tones — and went viral after sharing a photo of herself wearing it on Facebook.

'Behold! My masks have arrived!' she wrote. 'I wore this to Walmart and petco today. When someone tells me my mask has penises on it, I kindly let them know this is how I determine they are too close, kindly back the f*** up.'

In fact, a person would have to stand within a few feed to be able to tell that the tiny drawings mixed in with scribbled flowers are actually genitals. 

As it turns out, Mindy told CafeMom, no one has has the courage to comment on her mask in person just yet.













'No one says anything,' she said. 'I don't know if they are afraid to say something, or if they think I'm unaware I have penises on my face.'

She is now selling the 'C***block Corona Mask' masks as to benefit the Utah Harm Reduction Coalition, of which she is the founder and executive director

The nonprofit provides harm reduction education, advocacy, and services, and also runs a syringe exchange.

The masks are being sold for $20 each on the organization's website, with proceeds funding their work.

They come in under patterns, too, including penises with wings, breasts, and vulvas.
