And in the language of LOLcats, "food" is rendered as "fud" - no umlaut, though.



And I'm about to UpchUck. Sorry. Couldn't figure out how to put the two umlauts in that word.

Wait, though - Fud = “fōōd,”?!

Interesting too how in the other two examples you cite, the companies also use a contrasting color for the "ü". I guess it's to highlight the smiley face aspect.

Here's what the internet is for - an incredible Wikipedia entry about the "Heavy Metal Umlaut":
