Sleeping man's recurrent vision of pickled cabbage was Wurst Nightmare

I thought Wurst was a sausage?
What's the pickled cabbage thing. I bought it once.
But 'Sleeping Man's recurrent vision of sausage' has much more comedy potential!
Got to agree with the above comments.
"Sleeping Man's recurrent vision of German Sausage..." had me giggling like an idiot.
I'm going to leave the mistake up, as it allows people the pleasure of seeing another person's misfortune. The Germans have a word for that. Zeitgeist.

See what you did there..
Also, I have to point out that you can't really have visions when you're asleep. You'll appreciate that your eyes are closed so you can't see - I think you must mean "dream". When you're awake, that's when you can have a vision, except obviously when you blink.
I have to mention that the phrase "worst nightmare" doesn't really make sense either. That would mean a nightmare that had logical, chronological or geographical inconsistencies - you'd realise the nonsense of it all, so it wouldn't be all that bad after all. Maybe, you mean "best nightmare" - which would be one that made you shit yourself.
Sorry for pointing this out. Otherwise excellent sub, 5*.
[PS, I honestly think the gag would be quite funny to a German as it stands !]
You are right, Vision is all wrong. That is even less forgivable than mixing up Sauerkraut with Wurst
"German sausage dream turns into wurst nightmare" would be better perhaps.
Leaving my feeble attempts at a humorous and mildly abusive disection of your work to one side, I think you've got it. There's even a snigger in it now for Oxy.
Since you're now ~6 hours, I'd post it again. Good ticker material.
I was thinking, maybe we could leveragize some feedback from the guys in marketing, compliance and HR
