Your lettuce umbrella is great, using its leafy canopy to shield you from the pouring rain. But leafy greens can only satisfy you for so long. At some point, you’re going to want to reinforce your downpour defense with a little spice. This Chili Pepper Umbrella should do the trick.
Designed to look like a chili pepper when folded, the umbrella makes you look like you’re carrying a giant piece of fruit filled with tongue-destroying capsaicin. Whether you love spicy food, really love spicy food, or really, really love spicy food (let’s be honest, everyone’s tolerance varies), this umbrella looks like the perfect accessory to get you through the rainy days of the year.
The Chili Pepper Umbrella comes in two designs: cayenne (red) and jalapeno (green). Both come with hard plastic sheaths cast in the familiar pepper shape, with green stalks at the end of the handles to complete the chili pepper look. Naturally, they look a little less like chili peppers when opened, but they should do a good job of shielding you from torrential downpours, which is all that really matters. It measures 5.6 x 33 cm (d x l).
