Tin Tin-esque -A Bouquet of Brollies

This strangely gift wrapped bouquet of wet umbrellas, spied earlyish one December morning on a Ginza footpath was a puzzling reminder, but of what?   This week revisiting Tin Tin in Tibet, I found it. In what might be the most ridiculous scene in any of Tin Tin's adventures.Captain Haddock, overdoes both the whiskey - nothing surprising there - and the pace, perhaps the altitude contributes a little extra, or the heat, but his perception morphs into a crazy dream where Prof Calculus is kitted out as a school boy/sailoir suit and carrying a large bouquet of umbrellas, whereupon things get weirder. Maybe this bouquet of brollies was for Herge?
