Stupid Smart People

From our "Solutions to Problems No One Has" comes what's being called a "smart trench coat,"  sold by a company called "Motiif."  No, that's not a typo, and yes, of course it was.  Because . . . k001!

In any event, the thing, which is itself called "M" (get it?  You know, like Bernard Lee or Judy Dench) is described thusly:
. . . the coat offers a built-in 4G data connection and smartphone charger wrapped in a sleek, waterproof design. An available smartphone app will integrate with the coat and provide you with weather information and advise you if and when you should wear the M.
There's only one problem: it's not a trench coat.  Here's what the thing looks like.

That's not a trench coat.  THIS is a trench coat.

Here's the thing.  If Bogie had worn that thing up above, Baby would have laughed.
