Mask We Have Fail (Updated)

Mask We HaveAs submitted to the English Fail Blog (I’ll link to it if they choose to publish it), this sign I saw in my local CVS drug store really made me scratch my head.

“MASK WE HAVE!” it says. “HAVE MASK .99 FOR ONE[,] 25.00 FOR A CASE.”

What mask[s]? And what language was this written in?

I am tempted to ask for a case of the mask they have [?], but on the other hand I’m a little afraid to find out what they’re talking about. Are these anti-swine-flu masks, or used Hillary Clinton Halloween masks, or Israeli gas masks? I’m so confused!
