So it turns out there are actually people out there who are more afraid of how they look carrying an umbrella than getting wet in the rain. This led to the creation of this horribly sexist fake newspaper known as the Manbrella. I'm not entirely sure why women couldn't use it too.
Made from a durable waterproof fabric known as Tyvek -- the same stuff they wrap new homes with -- the Manbrella automatically unfolds into a rigid rectangular canopy you can hold over your head to keep the rain at bay. The fact that it even exists for $US20 is stupid, but the fact that it's currently sold out is downright asinine.
