Brolly Good Show!
My friend Steve is always losing umbrellas.
If we go out for a drink you can guarantee that he'll have mislaid it within an hour. Or, as he often claims, 'someone steals it'. I'm not convinced that there's a thriving underground market in cheap £5 black brollys, if I'm honest. But it would be interesting to see if his story is true. How could we test if his loss of umbrellas is due to theft or his own inability to hang onto one?
How about an umbrella that no one would want to nick?
Enter the Lizard Umbrella. Like its namesake losing its tail to avoid predators, the Lizard brolly can shed its handle making it useless to thieves. The tip of the umbrella stem is embossed with lines that slot only into the matching handle – much like how a key only fits into its corresponding lock. Clever eh?
