Three witches at a cauldron creating all sorts of coloured smoke and fumes.
The Scottish Word:

Smuir.

Weel weel aw oor cookin up o this virus has resulted in a wee bonus o this wee bittie cloot whit’ll keep the smeek an smuir oot o oor lighs.

ahn whit’s mair if’n we whip it aff in front o the wee bairnies it’ll gie them a rare fleg.

What wi the rare coontenance we aw have.

Translation:

smuir: thick smoke, suffocating atmosphere, to be smothered, to suffocate, extinguish something.

Well well all our cooking up of this virus has resulted in a small bonus of this little bit of cloth that will keep the burning fumes and suffocating smoke out of our lungs.

And what’s more if we go and whip it off in front of small children they will get an incredible scare.

What with the unexpected countenance that we all have.
