Cool, cool glasses!

There are many references to characters wearing cool shades (or cool glasses). Often, characters will be seen wearing sunglasses or other eye-wear. However, none of the main characters have any visible ears or noses (with the exception of Strong Mad), so it is a mystery as to how these glasses are held up.
