    It’s a classic demonstration of conservation of angular momentum from classical physics. A good caption might be: “what excellent physics teachers do”

    markybarfy @6, you win the internets.

    I’d been thinking of variants on the umbrella theme too, but most of them got taken already. How about:

    “Umbrella. You’re doing it wrong.”

    Never saw you look quite so pretty before
    Never saw you dressed quite so lovely what’s more
    I could hardly wait to keep our date this lovely Easter morning
    And my heart beat fast as I came through the door

    In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it
    You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade

    I’ll be all in clover and when they look you over
    I’ll be the proudest fellow in the Easter parade
