Judging by the image, they have a serious egg shortage too. 

One egg? What's wrong with you people?!?

The English don't have REAL bacon. They have thinly slicked mini-hams.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Their sausages, on the other hand, most definitely have something wrong with them.

I made myself a one-egg omelet for breakfast, so I'm getting a kick out of your post.

Seriously, there's no way I could eat a plate like that for breakfast. Sometimes it's just half a piece of toast for me.

"There's one thing I always meant to ask Jack. Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world. Except sometimes, he doesn't. All those times in history, when there was no sign of him, I wanted to know why not. But I don't need to ask anymore. I know the answer now. Sometimes the Doctor must look at this planet and turn away in shame. I am recording this in case anyone ever finds it. So you can see... you can see how the world ended."

We should make more corn ethanol. I can't see how using 40% of the food crop that dominates the vast majority of your farmland to create an incredibly inefficient fuel could possibly go wrong, especially in a drought.

Back Bacon. Infinitely superior to the streaky nonsense you crazy yanks overcook for your breakfasts stateside.

And the sausages are a thing of joy, so long as you don't get the cheap ones. Breakfast links in the US are gross.

I do envy you your proper hash browns though. All we get is the triangular deep fried things.

So close to sounding British, but no brit would ever call it 'blood pudding', it's black pudding. White pudding exists also but is quite a rare thing, whereas the black seems to be undergoing quite a resurgence.

That breakfast is also missing the fried mushrooms... And FYI eggs aren't really the central attraction there, like they would be in the US. The point is to get a whole mix of things.

Is anyone else completely farking sick of hearing about bacon? Sometime in the past few years everyone seems to have decided that it's the second coming of Christ in edible form. Knock that shiat off.

American bacon and back bacon are both insanely delicious.

American breakfast link sausages and British/Irish bangers are both insanely delicious.

1/2 of 1 pc of toast?

you have a hearty appetite for a 3 year old.

are you so small that your voice sounds funny? just wondering. there was a tiny person working the cash register at the pizza parlor the other day. teeny tiny, squeeky little voice, the whole nine yards. i couldn't tell if the person was a guy or a girl. being a big fat over-sized slob myself I always find diminutive people make me think of chicken wings. chicken wings and BBQ.

PROBLEM: Overcrowding Prisons + Hungry Pigs

SOLUTION:
"Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shiat, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig".
