Alternative Uses to Barnard Masks

Bwog staff knows that the Barnard mask came in the mail and there was no way you were actually going to use it for its intended purpose.

Bwog has shown off our favorite (better) masks and some protocols for socializing during a global pandemic. Bwog always recommends wearing a mask and following all social distancing protocols. But… perhaps the Barnard mask is better used for other things like…

  • As modeled by Lizzo, a teeny tiny bag
  • An eye mask (it really is just that large)
  • Elbow pads
    • Bonus points if Barnard sent you two masks so you can cover both elbows!!
  • A slingshot
  • Lime/ other types of fruit holder
  • Headband
  • Handkerchief for all of the tears you’re shedding about COVID and no campus life
  • Underwear
    • Instructions: one leg per ear loop
  • Glasses
  • A hat
  • Socks
  • A napkin
  • Oven mitt
  • Towel

Thank you Barnard for sending out these masks but I’d rather you let us back onto a safe campus.
