A Pithy Answer to the Question of Whether Those $100 Italian Wood Umbrellas at Costco Are Worth It

No. No they’re not.┬áIt’s not even close. Wouldn’t get one at $9.99 much less $99.99.

(And they’re rather lightweight, so they’d be less-than-helpful in close-range combat.)

And “Ombrelli” – is that a brand name?

And “Manufacturing circa 1947” – really? Isn’t that something like, “I’ll pick you up at around 7:42:53 PM?

I looked around for the video cameras thinking I was getting Punk’d or something, but it turns out that Costco is serious about this.

Oh well.
