On the European theme started earlier today, this is apparently how Europe does umbrellas. They’re all rather stylish and look well-made (the Chartres is added to my wishlist), and seem pretty usable for day-to-day umbrellaring.

All, that is, apart from this one, which probably does cover your back well but looks a bit daft…

and is sold very creatively

As the rain began to pour, Anya frowned, worrying about the evening ahead. Would the rain ruin her best gown? Just then, Paul appeared in the doorway, holding the Chapelle. She smiled. He really did think of everything.

If Paul appeared in my doorway holding the Chapelle I’d worry that he’d been standing against a radiator which melted half his brolly, and I’d tell him to go home and bring me a proper one before I put it somewhere uncomfortable.

In the wake of this embarrassing item, I present the tandem umbrella…

Just as sickening, but with a more even distribution of labour.

I was thinking of putting this forward for next week’s stupid brolly, but I think I’m in love with it. Every time I look I can’t stop but giggle. It’s amazing! This blog says that the Asian porn market has started to adopt the UFO Caps for their films – something about cleaning up. Erm…

I don’t know about that, but this one does look rather like an unused condom.


Stupid Brolly of the week

I’ve only ever seen one person wearing one of these and it was one of the odder spots during my Ghana trip. I’m sure I don’t need to explain this concept.

Do you suppose Gok Wan came for a visit and suggested it would draw attention away from his face? Even the army use them…

Yeah, that’s right, camouflage. You won’t be at all noticeable with that on your bonce. If only Arnie had one on in Predator. He’d look brilliant and be almost as well concealed as his dreadlocked enemy.


Stupid Brolly of the Week

It’s hardly as if the mutt is going to expire from the effects of damp fur.

If you’re going to go this far you should buy the thing some wellies as well or it’ll catch its death from the puddles. And maybe a pipe and some glasses. And a newspaper under its little arm.

On the plus side it is the sort of thing that lovely Brian would have bought for PomPom in Spaced.

Like I said, I’m in the process of developing a way to make umbrellas from recycled materials. If you are going to recycle your old umbrellas in the meantime, though, you could do worse than to make them into a bat costume.

The Clear Onihr

Yet another exciting umbrella?

Comment: I think it would be better to pay a small child or an unemployed person to hold a real brolly, that way you look like you can afford an assistant.

Hee hee.
