Alfalfabrella is an umbrella with seeds embedded in its outer skin that sprout on a rainy day ready for harvesting when you get home.

       Sprout on a rainy day, sure. But needs sunshine to grow n'est pas?   

       So this needs a thingamajiggy to change the name from alfalfabrelle to alfalfaparasol at a moment's notice.

       Rainy one day, sunny the next.

       Bean sprouts take about a week to sprout. Your arm is going to get a bit tried holding up a umbrella for a week.

       Actually, beans take about a week to sprout; bean sprouts are, by definition, beans that have already sprouted.

       "OK, why are those pair of assholes carrying umbrellas?"
