The Anonymous Widower

Is It Time To Use The Humour Option?

I was coming back from Hampshire tonight, and this guy was checking tickets in Winchester station.


His simple mask says “To The Trains” with a tasteful arrow! It certainly made me smile.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, we have used all serious and politically correct methods to fight the virus.

And we all seem to be getting more worried and miserable!

But what would those great comedians of the past like Arthur Askey, Dave Allen, Les Dawson, Ken Dodd, Groucho Marx and Max Miller have said and what songs would the likes of Spike Jones have sung?

I find it strange, that you see so few humorous masks and how many have been dressed to amuse, by perhaps wearing a mask, which matches, what they are wearing?

I know if C were still alive and I was still making her summer dresses as I sometimes did in the 1960s and 1970s, I’d have made her at least one flowery dress with a matching mask.

Humour is a very serious business!

  1. Watching an episode of The Catherine Tate Show I could imagine what Nana would say when told to put on her mask ….. But I reckon my mother would have said the same I hope they film a new series!

  2. Some of my masks match some of m clothes; quite are lot are made from leftover fabric pieces from when I made two dame dresses for a panto about 10 years ago,

    I am pretty sure you don’t watch Great British Bake Off, at the start of the opening episode, Matt Lucas, one of the presenters, did a take on Boris Johnson. I thought it was funny, but apparently a lot of people complained to whoever it is you complain about TV shows. Yes, we need more humour right now.
