The unknown creature from the supermarket

One of the worst risks is making its way through the supermarket. It has arms and legs like a human being. The unknown being can also speak, as can be seen from a shrill "hi"-reputation. But what or who it is exactly cannot be seen under a face mask printed with flowers.
