100 grams of lipogram

5HE4H

This reminds me of Gadsby, a book with no letter ‘e’ in it by American novelist Ernest Vincent Wright. Nope, I never read it, but we talked about the idea of a lipogram back in secondary school.

    The name of the product is on the bag already. How hard is it copy that?! The person that wrote this either doesn’t know the difference between an apostrophe and a comma (or doesn’t care) or he may be dyslectic. This is bad, especially coming from the “biggest grocer” in the Netherlands.

    The lipogrammatic novel of the present is Ella Minnow Pea. As the book progresses, the amount of letters used diminishes, until at one point only 4 letters are used. I did not read Gadsby, but that one is definitely worth reading.

    This one just looks like the keyboard is broken.
