This Lettuce Umbrella Should Count As a Serving of Veggies

If the thought of putting anything green in your mouth leaves you gagging, this adorable and remarkably life-like lettuce umbrella might help slowly acclimate you to accepting vegetables into your life. And it probably goes without saying that it will keep you dry as well.

Available for just under $50 from a Japanese website called Koncent, the Vegetabrella, as it's known, is made from a permanently wrinkled fabric that's almost impossible to distinguish from the garnish on your last burger. For those who hate vegetables it will probably taste the same as well, but hopefully no one will ever actually mistake this umbrella for a freshly washed head of romaine when it's wet.
