“How did that get in there?”
“You can stand under my... Like you care where you stand.”
“Now that it's raining more than ever... I'm not gonna let you under my umbrella. You can rot out there in the rain. Faggot.”
“And some people thought humanity was my greatest creation...”
Note: claims that the umbrella was created by Dog as part of some "intelligent design" have recently been proved to be bollocks.
Note: further claims that the umbrella-ella-ella-ay-ay-ay was created by Rihanna as part of some "intelligent design" have recently been proved to be bollocks as well.
The species' (and its light reactive half breed, the parasol) ultimate aim is to render all humans blind and eventually bring about mankind’s ultimate destruction. Once the species has multiplied to 7 (seven) individuals, they will combine to form one uber-umbrella and will fight Perfect Mega Jesus for ownership of the planet. If triumphant the uber umbrellas will then block out the sun creating a plant wide iceage, with all species of the Earth made extinct as temperatures plummet. The only people to survive will be Geordies, who will still refuse to wear T-Shirts and claiming everyone else are "soft southern nancies."
The umbrella is commonly known as a circular folding device which is designed to protect the user from rainfall, snowfall, or sunlight. Interestingly, this is a common misconception. The umbrella we know today is actually called an 'Umbrolla'. The true umbrella was a long-range ballistic hammer created by Apple to neutralize opposing groundhogs. The government ordered the brainwashing and name change of umbrella to make sure no one ever questioned it's authority. The government is scheduled for execution this Tuesday.
A horrible tragedy... Best not to speak of it.
Methods of Attack
- Draining Spacial Awareness: The most common form of attack is, after hooking on to a host mammal it slowly drains the host of its spacial awareness creating a moving lethal weapon with its sharp spines protruding and attack all eyes within its presence. Victims will be made blind and hopefully wander into passing traffic. Umbrellas frequently habit outdoor shopping areas.
- The Trip Method: Recent health and safety bulletins across workplaces have brought this new method of attack. Despite the animals mutating into many colours, they have recently learned to camouflage themselves with many office surroundings, (counter rumours state that people unable to see 3 dimensional, 4ft diameter pieces of plastic/canvas are idiots, and are just part of the umbrellas master plan) and after rain will hide in office, "drying" itself ready to leap in front of its prey. Once it has tripped its victim all manner of gruesome ends may befall the unfortunate individual.
- The Fake Parachute: A limited form of attack can only be used against people who believe cartoons are real. The victim, again drained of rational thought, will think it can jump from tall buildings and that the Umbrella can be used to slow the descent of the victim. Once the victim has leapt the Umbrella will turn itself inside out acting as an aerofoil and SPLAT, the rest is self explanatory. There is a variant of this method where when near the edge of a long drop the umbrella will drag its victim over the edge.
- The Laser Doom Canon: Few people realize the full destructive power of the umbrella, and are usually fooled into thinking one of the three previous methods are sufficient for assaulting an unsuspecting enemy. While they may be stealthy or efficient, the Laser Doom cannon is much more immediate, and considerably more satisfying.
An umbrella is shaped such that the focus of the curve lands roughly one centimetre from the bottom of the umbrella. On an umbrella fitted with a grip (as most are), you will be required to remove it. On some older models, the stem is opaque, but it must be reflective in order to complete activation of the Laser Doom Cannon. Once the stem has been prepped, you are nearly prepared. The next step is to take a flashlight with a very bad focus, and place it just beneath the end of the longer part of the stem. Ideally, the focus of the flashlight will fall on the correct focus point of the umbrella, but anywhere close will work fine. Once the light has been placed correctly, anything within six thousand feet of the umbrella and within the 2 foot radius around the normal line will be obliterated. When the light reflects off the stem, it strikes the edge of the knitting in the umbrella, and luckily enough, fires straight forward in a condensed beam. Although it looks as though a single large beam is being fired, it is in fact a large number of small ones forming a circle. The government of everywhere except Cuba has outlawed doing this however, and it is only to be used for fending off Police who are after you for using this dangerous weapon.
Umbrellas as Network Equipment
Specialized umbrellas, also known as a Rack Umbrella, can be used to protect network equipment in places where one might find mystery goo or spooge. These are typically made of old, broken umbrellas.
Umbrellas as a Sport
This sport involves a group, usually 3-4 people, 1 constantly on the lookout for the Police, and around 10 umbrellas. The next step involves picking a crowded area and generally making an arse of yourself.
Many techniques include:
- Spelling out words on the grass of a public place.
- Dressing up lamposts with jackets and umbrellas.
- Hanging numerous umbrellas to a tree.
- Scaring the local farmers' goats.
- Jumping around puddles like a complete jackass.
- Hanging umbrellas from roadsigns.
- Asking butchers and other members of the general public for natural poses.
- Making movies in the local ruined bath house. No porn now, kids, keep it clean.
Of course, like any professional sport, the game is constantly changing. Rules can be inadvertently broken. Players should be minded to look out for strolling policemen and Neds on bikes. Over the next decade it is expected that the number of umbrella gamers will rise 100 fold to ward off Global Warming.
Remember kids; hats are for losers, follow the righteous path of the umbrella.
Umbrellas As Holy Relic
In the practice of supercalifragilisticexpialidociousism umbrellas of the color black are considered holy and sacred. The use of the umbrella in daily flight is crutial for the patron saint Julie Andrews. The mutilation of the black umbralla is punishable by eternity in the bottomless carpetbag or even banishment from the ceiling!
In 2007 a song was released dedicated to the uses of the umbrella by Satan and her wife. Since the releasing of the song, umbrella sales world wide are increasing with some umbrellas even fitted with the addicting "ella, ella ,ella, eh eh " clip from the song.
It is further proven that artist Rihanna is warning of us of a future apocalypse, in of which only an umbrella can save us and we are urged to carry one at ALL times. It will rain meteors, and only those with umbrella ella elle ella eh eh eas can survive. If you survive the attack then you will see the second part of the apocalypse in of which zombies who were once of Resident Evil's umbrella corporation to attack you in of which you will have to ward them off by singing umbrella.
Since Rihanna's song it has become illegal to say the word Umbrella and have nobody pitch in and go ella elle alla eh eh...If such a act occurs you will be presented as a test subject to the umbrella corporation and offered up to postpone our apocalypse on the album's four year anniversary.
Umbrella Factories, or factories that produce umbrellas, are best known for flooding quickly in any sort of weather, be it rain, freezing rain, hail, sleet of ice. Occasionally umbrella factories will even flood without precipitation. The famous case of The Umbrella Factory vs. Weather, which closed on April 21, 2004, resulted in a loss by the weather. Weather has not yet paid the $4956 fine for the damage caused in the flood of Noah's Arc.
