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?

Help, I don’t get it 🙁 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.

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

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”. 😛

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 🙂

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! 😛

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