A Leeds inventor has come up with a t-shirt that changes colour according to how much sun there is. It is supposed to warn the wearer about the possibility of getting skin cancer.
E.E.C. Investigators quickly smelled a rat, however, and pounced on it. The would be inventor was apprehended and immediately charged with fraud. What tipped them off was that the sun rarely shines in Leeds.
"It was a big bluff" stated Scotland Yard spokesman Snickety Holmes. "We caught on to his game pretty quick. People in Leeds don't even know what the sun is between the pollution and the cloudy weather!"
Investors did take a great interest in the inventor's other concoction that legitimately did offer a possibility of generating revenue- a t-shirt for women that turns invisible the more sunny it is. Requests for shipments have already started flooding in from famous British-visited resorts in Spain and Greece.
There is even talk of a female swimsuit that has the same attributes which would have mention getting up and taking notice.
