Hey, this is normal. You know how when you go to a cafe and they walk over and give you a menu? And they take your drink order? And they give you a straw fedora with swimming noodles strapped to the top?
Well folks, times, as we all know, are crazy right now. German cafe, Café Rothe, has tried to add some levity to this pandemic by providing customers with swimming noodle-adorned hats to promote social distancing. Germany started loosening restrictions back in April and restaurants in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are finally allowed to re-open their doors as of May 9th. Café Rothe is celebrating this occasion and to be honest, it looks pretty fun:

Al municipi de Schwerin, Alemanya, el Café Rothe s'ha fet famós perquè ha decidit marcar les distàncies entre els seus clients convidant-los a posar-se un barret amb uns xurros de natació que marquen la distància de seguretat. Els clients, abans de prendre's el cafè, es posen un barret al cap amb uns xurros d'escuma clavats que marquen el metre de distància marcat pel govern de la cancillera Angela Merkel. 🎥 Café Rothe📲 https://bit.ly/3crCztv
Café Rothe’s owner, Jacqueline Rothe, spoke to Insider:
In these difficult times it’s a pleasure to make others smile.
Customers seem to be loving it with one commenting (horrifically translated from German), “How awesome is this please? Irony and sarcasm united… very welcome at this time, from my point of view. Because what’s it called so beautiful? HUMOR IS WHEN YOU LAUGH. That’s why thanks to the people who can be seen in the picture. 🤣🤣🤣”
Ya know, fashion trends emerge out of nowhere. This could be the next big thing, you guys. Kudos to Café Rothe and their entire staff for coming up with something innovative and fun during these nutty times.
