It's an umbrella that looks like a gun

Who came up with this brilliant idea?

Behold the "Gunbrella"

It's an umbrella that looks like an assault rifle when not raining.

The company making them in Canada is calling it quits after taking heat from authorities there. Seems officers were ready to shoot a guy with one of these at a bus stop.

Can't say I blame them. Duh.

That story plus I've got a couple of good nuggets from my weekend, including a brazen act at the mall that involved me calling for security immediately.

Anybody go see the "Around The Corner" premier in Neenah Sunday? If so I'd like to hear from you on the show today about how it went.


"Howz Yer Weekend?" leads things off today on the PhilCast.
