Maybe I am missing something here but why is he wearing a Chip and Dales' Chip mask?

A very apt approach to religion.

@Matthew Simon, Yep, that's Disney's Chip from Chip n' Dale as in Rescue Rangers. It looks like he's got another mask below that one. Note the second nose and mouth below Chip's nose and teeth.

Is there such a thing as kid's medical-type masks with cute things like animal muzzles printed on them?
