Is that a...beard net?

Yesterday in my temporary home of Newark, OH (Licking County) I was in a Giant Eagle grocery store. As I was perusing the apples, I noticed a big jolly man pushing a cart of produce. I smiled to myself thinking of Santa and Grandpas and other happy things. Santa turns around he is donning a beard net. Yes, a beard net. The net has elastic that hangs on both ears so it completely engulfs all the bushy grey beard hair so he is compliant with all OSHA rules (or whatever). I had never seen one of these and did not feel right taking a pic, but did find a pic on Google. Note: This man looks almost exactly like the Giant Eagle Santa.

Have you seen a beard net?

I don't know how I feel about this.

One part of me is like, "Yeah - that's totally promoting a germ-free environment. Sweet."

The other part of me is super-creeped out.
