Fiber for the soul


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’?

    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.
