Cheesebrella Part 2

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

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

Once upon a time I was in Ghana chatting about umbrellas with an English journalist’s brother who was over on holiday. He and I stayed up late conspiring drunkedly about what mishief we could inflict upon the humble brolly and amongst a few gems he came up with something very similar to this.

I dismissed it because I thought it a bit pants.

Guess what? I still do.

I suppose I ought to include the bad and the ugly along with the good. I really really love the idea of lights in umbrellas (see below) but I find these a bit naff and unimaginative. Great idea poorly executed. However, I may have to buy one to take it apart to see how it works! My ideas mostly involve having the lights inside the umbrella, but this outer lighting seems like a good way to be seen by traffic at night.

I’m not exactly sure what’s going to occur here. There will be umbrellas. That is all.
