The square umbrella

For wet-lunch-hour lovers

When two lovers stroll in rain,

Regardless of the weather,

“Round” umbrellas are a pain,

Because the edges clash together.

But “square” umbrellas fit,

And let the pair get closer,

Just an extra little bit.

Is that a bad thing? ... No sir!

not square, but these fit together. Disappointingly, not as kinky as it sounds. [footzilla, Jun 11 2005]


       If you have two square umbrellas side-by-side, each is going to dump a fair amount of rain onto the other person unless you seal the gap between them.

       And I thought I was being mock-serious. In future I'll search on every synonym no matter how un-useless an idea seems. I just didn't think of "couples". How elegant is that twin-shaft solution, and flying solo with a square umbrella - I didn't think of that either. Thanx all. I'll add this fishbone to my pile / And through my tears contrive a smile.
