I got a HUMMER in the Castro, a HUMMER umbrella that is…
Yes they are gas guzzling monstrosities. And no, I’d never buy one. However, when HUMMER is printed on an umbrella in metallic silver, it can’t be ignored. This is especially true when it’s an XXXL umbrella with a metallic silver underside.
When the rain began to pummel me in the Castro this afternoon, I thought nothing good would come of it. Dripping wet and cold, I darted into Walgreens on the corner of Castro and 18th.
That’s when I saw it: the Hummer Umbrella. Now, whenever it’s raining, everyone will know what’s on my mind. Hopefully, the joke won’t be lost.
