Ahem!, claims like this are more for Auxlang not Conlang... besides DiLingo (a conlang that has no pretensions of being an Auxlang) is much more funny :P~ and it makes more rhyme'n' sense ;) [more on DiLingo IIRC is at <A HREF="">* langmaker</A>]

Granola "wet POWDER food" 0_o? Have you eaten granola lately? Well that's been too bleedin' long ;)
>pita bread = ozaby = "noun container food" (an)
Wonderful!, sacre bleu!, but what in the hell are tacos and taco salads o_o? Or sweet buns or jelly-filled donuts? What would you call curry in this language of yours? Or bird's nest soup? Or shark's fin soup? Or chocolate-covered ants? or honey-roasted piranha? Are there different terms for frozen yogurt, ice cream and gelato? (Eek!, is my food-obsessed Cantonese side of my personality showing?)
