I don't know if this cartoon is related or not.

OK, now I'm gonna buy a credit card sized digital camera you can whip out of yer jacket pocket.
I slept through Melbourne’s latest pocket storm but when I caught the 96 tram into work at about 10am, I saw wonderful sights.
A street paved suddenly with fresh wet green leaves, newsagent lottery signage festooning nearby building sites and most poignantly of all, a crushed umbrella, trapped like a fucked up fruit bat, in the overhead tram cable junction next to Jeff’s Shed.
And everyone was all very jaunty about it all.

I love that image of the fruit bat.
Inspires me to transplant my own colony of broken black umbrellas to a tree. That's if they'll take to it.
(and I wonder how the fruit bats along the Boulevard fared in the fierce winds)
