Fiber for the soul

Oats

It’s hard to believe that someone would make this mistake in this day and age, but they did. Let us all admire this wonderful mishap, have a good laugh and send it ’round the Internet.

Speaking of which I plan to open up a Dunglish Flickr account to share and give back, and one of these days I will be finished with adding all the tags to previous postings.

    Fiber for the soul and/or food for thought?

  2. Breigh says:

    hahaha awesome!

    Help, I don’t get it πŸ™ This looks like some bread they named Oat Brain… That’s kind of funny, but is it wrong in some way?

    And by the way: fiber of fibre? I would have used fibre.

  4. Natashka says:

    Sometimes I use American spelling and sometimes British. That’s just me. Oat brain is plain silly πŸ™‚

    I’m really enjoying this blog! I saw that “Oat Brain” sign at Bertram & Brood yesterday and had to do a double take. I think a great tag line for this bread would be “Keeps zombies regular”. πŸ˜›

    I guess ‘haverbrood’ just didn’t seem cool enough.

    My mind keeps wanting to reinterpret that sign as reading ‘Oat Brian’.

    Speaking of food, I recently discovered that the name ‘Brinta’ is an early form of Dunglish. Did you know it stood for ‘Breakfast Instant Tarwe’?

  7. Natashka says:

    Cool, vintage Dunglish πŸ™‚

  8. Maurits says:

    Very funny indeed.

    I do hope you open a Dunglish Flickr account.
    I’d would like to contribute the dunglish I come across here in The Hague.

    @Larry: I didn’t know that. Great piece of archeology.

    Oh! It replaces ‘fish’ as brain food and you get all that roughage to keep your bowels clear! πŸ˜›

    Mr. M: “bran” is English for Dutch “zemelen”, a fiber-rich part of the grain. They presumably meant to write that.
