This is a picture of the label on my "Nutrizone" bar, an Aldi knock-off of the Zone bar. Basically, a high-protein granola bar. Notice the "umlaut" over the...Z? Life imitating art. See below.
I mean, Aldi is a German company. Maybe they're putting umlauts over consonants these days. To quote David St. Hubbins: "It's like a pair of eyes. You're looking at the umlaut, and it's looking at you."
