Dot Com Biscuits

Britania is a major cookie maker in Kenya. (Yes, you guessed, that name originates from Kenya's colonial roots.)

I was amused at how one of their popular products is based around a "has-been" name. The CDs in the title are pretty funny too.

I think you figured out that "biscuits" is British-English for "cookies".

There's a massive billboard
featuring these lovely biscuits. All visitors to Nairobi see it, on their way into town from the main airport.

I really get a kick out of the different advertisements I've seen on your blog. This one is particularly "different."

What a swell biscuit! I think there's no where to go but up. You can sell Web 2.0 biscuits a few years from now.

Wrong! Cookies is American-English for biscuits!

Good post, Paul!
