Now Bicyclists Can Look Smug Through A Layer Of Protective Plastic

I chose to read that as "Bubrella," an umbrella for one's boobies, and I see no pressing reason to correct myself.

@C_Webb: Meanwhile, I'll be eagerly awaiting the "Nudebrella."

@C_Webb And I was expecting to see a "Nutbrella." But I think those are just pants.

The hardest part of being a bicyclist is resisting all the opportunities to look totally frickin stupid.

Keeps out the alpha-rays. You don’t get old.

No doubt this will outsell my invention, "It's water — cowboy up."
