The Mysterious Umbrellas

I have recently made a most amazing discovery. I have found a race of creatures who can pull water down from the sky. The extraordinary bipeds actually produce droplets of water with long stick-like objects called “umbrellas”. As I watched, the water ritual began. First the silly-creatures gatherer around a sacred pole; the creatures then looked up at the sky and held out their hands in a most curious fashion. The suddenly, the creatures transformed their sticks into upside-down bowls. These they positioned over their heads. At that very moment water poured from the sky. An “umbrella” is a wonderful object – not only does it get you wet, but also keeps you dry. This has been an enlighten experience, to say the least. For one thing, I now appreciate how much simpler and more efficient it is to have pipe-bangers.
