Some wise man once wrote:  “To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”  (Clearly, he never knew what happens when a wife catches her husband bonking her sister.)

Anyway, here’s the latest episode in the annals of “Whoa!  We never saw that coming!

Three million face masks are discarded every minute as a result of mass adoption during the coronavirus pandemic, and experts warn it could soon lead to environmental catastrophe.
Face coverings are being worn by the majority of individuals around the world in order to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus which causes Covid-19.
However, they pose a greater risk to the environment than carrier bags because of their ubiquity and the fact there is no way to safely decontaminate and recycle them.

It is, as the kids say, to LOL — and given the ways of the world, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the vast bulk of the face-condom trash emanates from the Third World (and most likely, from China withal).

So when you see me cooking hotdogs over a fire made from my face masks, you can rest assured “it’s for the environment”.


  1. That “three million masks per minute” number is, quite frankly, bullshit.

    Basically, they took the population of the Earth, figured half of them used one disposable mask every day, and went with it – while almost everyone in the richer countries have their own non-disposable masks, and the people in the poorer countries aren’t bothering with them.

    That’s not even considering the vast number of people who are still stuck at home, and don’t even have to wear one of the silly things most days.

  2. I have no idea of the exact numbers but as someone that goes pick up trash along the road once a week I can confirm that mask ( mostly disposable ) have become a problem.

  3. Mask litter is a problem here too. While there are indeed the careless, it’s very easy for a disposable mask to be blown away by the wind, especially when insecurely fitted. And thanks to the IRA public rubbish bins are few and far between and homeowners tend to keep their bins at the back so you can’t just pick one up and quickly put it in a bin.

  4. since these masks are becoming an environmental problem, how come the environmental watermelons aren’t up in arms to end the use of these useless masks?

    Oh that’s right the environmental watermelons love control. They love the thought of controlling the citizenry. They hope to exploit the programming and control of people with their crooked agenda.


  5. A more humorous and efficient solution would be to apply a pair of well-used “masks” as blindfolds upon the duly convicted Karens & their “male” ilk. Wall or Aero Pinochet, either is a win.

  6. Two things I don’t leave the abode without:
    1) a locked-and-cocked 1911;
    2) a bandana around my neck. It can be pressed into use as a face-covering when absolutely necessary and required, and it can be laundered frequently.
