    Be careful with your embrella! It would jab somebody else.

    A parent talked to her kid while it was rainning, 'Be careful with your embrella! It would jab somebody else.'

    Is the following sentence natural? Could anybody tell me some similar expressions like that?

    No, it's not correct.

    Re: Be careful with your embrella! It would jab somebody else.

    The item is an "umbrella". "Be careful with your umbrella! You could jab/poke somebody with it."
