  1. Tacky and tasteless. How sad.

  2. Things like this make me extremely embarrassed to be an Etsy seller. I don't advertise my Etsy shop anymore. This person is so sleazy and should be ashamed of themselves.

  3. A serious lack of integrity. Tacky.

  4. Some people will do anything for a sale. Copy someone, knock off a copyright, make light of a disease -- sure, why not?

  5. How about a personalized handmade shroud or coffin pillow for people who die from swine flu? it's all about the bucks, dontcha know?

  6. On second thought, after looking more closely, I think this belongs on the uglythingsforsale blog.

  7. Way to take advantage of the situation. If a portion of the proceeds were donated, it might be better. But they aren't.

    I'm usually good with offensive humor, but this is just tacky.

    This is my favorite comment:

    "We've got a smart one, there. They sewed through it, making it about as effective a barrier* as a bedazzled condom."

    "bedazzled condom" LMAO!

  9. I think it's pretty funny, especially since the CDC has repeatedly said that face masks are not helpful at preventing transmission. I don't know if the seller intended it to be satire, but I appreciate it as such.

    Who cares?

  10. Did ye see this new blog? http://itshouldnotbe.blogspot.com/
