BRITAIN’S prime minister would undoubtedly be fascinated by this latest rainy-day gadget, which is called the “Umbrubber.” Made to protect the user against sudden showers that might spring up, the device has a special handle of plastic which contains a pair of light-weight rubbers. In the event that the user is one ‘of those people who won’t wear rubbers, no matter what the weather, the handle can be used as a container for cigars, cigarettes, candy, or cough medicine.

    Does it protect the user from sudden showers of Nazi bombs!?!

    Mr Chamberlain really could have used a device to keep him from signing appeasement treaties with German dictators.

    We usually call them galoshes in the UK – “rubbers” are something completely different.
