Black Tang

Black Tang, Blåstång in Swedish, (Fucus vesiculosus) waiting for the tide to come back in. Must be a celebrity in the English speaking world. Wikipedia suggests nine different names and a nick name. Here we go, try to remember them all tomorrow. Black tang, bladder wrack, rock weed, bladder fucus, sea oak, cut weed, dyers fucus, red fucus, rock wrack and the nick name sea grapes.

Now this is almost like a Monty Python scene. Try not to laugh, dyers fucus, red fucus, bladder fucus. How easy for the non native English speaker to pronounce wrong here and loose all credibility in the Oceanic Society key note speech. The evening visit to the hotel bar might turn out lucky or just a boring conversation about bladder control.

Seriously, don’t take things too serious, ha de Gött!
