Ever try to negotiate a busy street in the rain with an umbrella?

You have to constantly twist and turn, and weave about to avoid bumping into people, but not when you put up your Umbrella of Fear. (aka terrorbrella) The crowds will part before you, as you peer out smugly through its dark sockets... it's best just to view the illustration

       [+] I think it needs windscreen- wipers for its eyes though (I presume these double-up as windows for the carrier).   

       If the wipers just detract from the terror, they could always be fashioned as giant freaky skelington fingers.

       I want credit for not linking to the "Umbrella" video.

       Heheh, I remembered that pic even though I haven't seen it in a decade. Needs glowing eyes/turn-signals.

       Can you perhaps delay marketing & distribution of your new product a few weeks? I need to buy some shares in a certain manufacture of sunglasses [Link], I suspect their sales prospects & stock may rise dramatically as a result of your new product line :)

       Is the bakery banjaxed? Seems to be behaving very strangely? 'recent' responds with fails to respond.

       I've noticed, the last couple of days, the HB taking its time to respond ; I thought it was my connection... guess not.
