    Tacky and tasteless. How sad.

    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.

    A serious lack of integrity. Tacky.

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

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

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

    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!

    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.
