Masks = Shenanigans

Wanted for Questioning

According to the NJ, masks give folks a lower level of inhibitions, allowing us to have a shocking good time. Quoth Pahl Hluchan, a professor at the Delaware College of Art and Design:

People who are normally very reserved or very shy, once they put on a mask, they take on the personality of the mask,” he said. “It gives them permission to act in ways they wouldn’t normally act because it’s no longer them. It’s the mask that’s making them behave the way they behave, and they’re not as connected to their actions.

Happy Halloween, All!

    If I did, I’m sure it would spend more time well below his face.
