Awesome Inventions of Yesteryear (part 3)

Cigarette holder with little umbrella covering the ember

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more kookie, the 1950’s bring us the Rainy Day Cigarette Holder!

The little umbrella is, let’s face it, adorable.  But wouldn’t it make more sense to just get yourself an umbrella (full-sized human umbrella) and smoke under that?  Don’t get me wrong, the guy in the pic looks super happy getting rained on.  Oh, and that happy gentleman is Robert L. Stern, president of Zues Corp.  I wonder what other technological marvels Zues Corp unleashed on the public?

Ingenuity, folks!
