Surely Brother Gunter is putting us on; his erudition is widely known in
the land of DJML, and thus I am fully convinced that he knows an
"umbrella" is in truth a "small shade,"  which implies that it is also
to be used on sunny days.  When else would one let a smile be
his/her/its umbrella?  I will defer to anybody else who may want to take
on "bumbershoot."
