Well, my friend. You didn't thake in consideration that even thouh the umbrella may seem small to you, it may be big enough for the fat ladies because the univierse is relative. Also, the hyberbolic shape of the umbrella may be more than enough to stop the rain as you can see in this formula : X = [Y^(pi) - C^2] / 3.5

Wow i could swear there were like 5 teasers about people under umbrellas not getting wet on Braingle..

I too thought it wasn't raining... no reference was made to the size of the umbrella either.

I suggest more information be given in these type teasers. It's a good idea to have a friend or family member read the teaser and offer their answers before you submit the final draft for acceptance.

They couldn't have been inside... it's bad luck to open an umbrella inside.

It's obvious that "It wasn't raining" is a better answer.
