This reminds us of that story back in February that wasn’t a joke, with school band members stuffed into individual little COVID tents for practice.

The weather’s nice enough for outdoor band concerts now, and this dad grabbed a picture of his son wearing a surgical mask with a hole in it so he could play.
My son is playing his band concert outside wearing a medical mask with a hole cut in it.

They cut a hole in his mask so he can breath air through a large tube that makes a sound when air from his lungs comes out the other end.

It's called Cognitive Dissonance.
Seek home schooling immediately.

If the coronavirus is watching the concert, he will see your son's deference and may passover.

Feeling like masks are the modern version of leeches.

Performative ritualistic garb symbolizing adhering to a faith:
Similar to the Vestments of altar boys in church or the Talit in synagogues.

Dont think a scientist can answer this. Perhaps a psychiatrist or a specialist in child cruelty?

For many years I played in an orchestra. How in the hell can anyone play in an orchestra with a mask on unless you play a violin or the drums? This is beyond stupid.

As if we band geeks did not look geeky enough already…are they trying to make that a science?
— Epper (@Eppur13) June 1, 2021
Simple. Even thought the mask has a hole in it, the electrostatic attraction generated by the friction of the air through the instrument repels the vir……. Wait. Hold up. Nevermind. It doesn’t do SQUAT.

Your son has very shrewdly and wisely shifted his mask up as far as he can go so as to hide his embarrassment at being associated with the adults that made him do this.

I'm a mask and vax supporter. I follow the science to the best of my ability.
And Yes. Unfortunately. This is total idiocy. And this is why so many rail against mask mandates.
A pandemic is a reason to pull together and do what we can. It's not a reason to do idiotic things.

At least the school band director was brave enough to show up (we assume).
