It is about minus 40 (C or F) with the wind chill so a willy warmer would be more practical.

The Steve Martin movie The Jerk comes to mind.

The models DO look a bit peaked.

ANY nose size?

My wife knitted me one of those when we were first married. Somehow she thought my nose was 9 inches long.

Thanks, Virtual. That made the coffee come out my nose. Now I gotta get me one.

No, she was brought up with the metric system so it was too short.

Better get the one without the big tassel, KDP. It may soak up all the coffee.
