I bought some porridge oats today so that the little Thomases can go to school with something warm inside them. On the box it says, 'Scott's Porage Oats'. I've never seen the word 'porage' before. Is it an alternative spelling that I'm unaware of or do Scott's have an illiterate graphic designer.

In the Scottish accent, Figure, the word is sounded as 'parritch'. As for the other spellings, they are all just variants of the base-word 'pottage'...basically, a thick soup/stew.
