Nibbles gets it. In a nutshell: My mask protects you. Your mask protects me. And according to a new report from Reuters:
. . . research, led by scientists at the Britain’s Cambridge and Greenwich Universities, suggests lockdowns alone will not stop the resurgence of the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, but that even homemade masks can dramatically reduce transmission rates if enough people wear them in public.
“Our analyses support the immediate and universal adoption of face masks by the public,” said Richard Stutt, who co-led the study at Cambridge.
Nibbles Woodaway is the giant termite mascot of Big Blue Bug Solutions visible along Route 95. The company describes the famous icon:
Constructed of steel and covered with fiberglass, the Big Blue Bug is an exact replica of an Eastern Subterranean Termite, also known as Reticulitermes flavipes. It is 58 feet long, 9 feet tall and weighs 4,000 pounds!
The Big Blue Bug has appeared in a number of movies and television programs, including: Dumb and Dumber, Dumb and Dumber To, The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Daily Show, and of course, Family Guy.
The BBBS celebrity spokesman is Providence College grad, John O’Hurley, Mr. Peterman on Seinfeld.
Nibbles was originally painted purple, the color of a swarming termite under the microscope, but it faded to blue.
