Well, based om the claimed levels of polution in the PRC, maybe not so dumb.

If I wore one of those into my local Qwik-E-Mart, I'd be shot by Apu! And, no joke, my local service station has a sign on their door reading "No costume masks allowed inside." Darn!

Well, that's SFW.

Preserving one's pale skin, the thinking goes, implies that you lead a pampered, successful life.

Pussy Riot WBAGNFA--oh, wait. They ARE a rock band...
