The Café Rothe in the city of Schwerin, in the state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, are those responsible for this wonderfully simple solution, as they gave their customers pool noodle hats.
Jacqueline Rothe, owner of this particular cafe told German TV channel RTL:
“In these difficult times it’s a pleasure to make others smile“.
This comes after Germany began to slowly ease its lockdown restrictions in late April, and since then, most commercial spaces under 8,600 square feet were allowed to reopen. With that in mind though, social distancing and hygiene practices are still very much in place, the government are urging the public to wear masks.
It’s worth mentioning that this is absolutely a joke on the part of Café Rothe, and they were simply poking fun at the social distancing measures taking place – though that’s not to say that they don’t want to abide by them – even if a lot of people on Facebook and the like think they’re being serious.
I must say, if these were serious (which they’re obviously not), then I don’t think I would visit.
Call me boring, but my biggest fear is looking like a tit, and I don’t think I’d be able to pull off a pool noodle hat. I’d like to be one of the few people who could get away with it, and I’m sure we’ll see hats like these at the next Met Gala, but for now, I’ll stay hatless.
With all of that said, I would do anything to have life return to whatever normality is possible, so I’d think twice before turning down a noodle hat.
