How could you eat all of that quickly enough for it to stay warm?  Cold fried egg isn't on the top of my to-do list.

"It should be banned. You can't eat a meal the size of a baby if you want to stay healthy, but if restaurants won't stop providing it, we need to educate the customer not to eat it."

Typical Nanny State attitude. Why do people feel the need to control others? I hope he dies of an aneurysm when someone breaks the news to him that people will eat unhealthy at home even if it isn't in the restaurant!

I would like 1/4 of that right now, fewer eggs and bread.  I would not even eat all of that. But it looks really delicious right now (missed breakfast).

Why in the world would you want to eat that much British food in one sitting?

I'm confused and frightened by this picture.

Why is this guy wearing a cocktail dress and a shawl?

That's a "Kidz Breakfast"? Looks like it's made from real kids.

Looks greasy.

If I wanted it, I'd just pay for it and take it to go. Eat cold, greasy food for a week. :P

It's just some wanker that the BBC interviewed. Hardly Nanny State.

Also, goddamnit subby, I'm hungry now.

Does this mean that Walmart is moving into the UK?

I swear I've read about this several times already on Fark. And really, who cares? It's a big plate of breakfast food. That's extremely boring, even if it is 9 lbs.

Now if it was 9 lbs of tacos, you'd really have my attention!

I'm guessing "black pudding" - aka fried congealed blood.
(British teeth rot out of fear of the food they eat.)

You know what never ever ever gets old?  Realizing that some words have more than one meaning, then using one of those words in a way that could be interpreted as the other meaning, but you really mean the different meaning.  That is the bee's knees.

Someone from the National Obesity Forum (not a state body) believes that unhealthy foods should be banned? Shocking.

His "chicken-little, sky-is-falling" hysteria is comical.  I'd imagine he envisions people lining up to eat one of these every morning because, "hey, it's one serving, right?, I need to eat breakfast everyday? - even if it is $25 every morning"

  I'd imagine him getting all red and flustered when he walks by a bakery that makes sheet cakes because people will be tempted to eat the whole damn thing at once.  The fact that he's a professor of anything is almost an embarassment to education.

They should have called it the National Obesity Movement*. Then when they put up a bunch of banners they'll read NOM NOM NOM.


* I know, obese people don't really move.

You have beans and breakfast: English. You get sugar on your fried bread: American. Me confused.

One wonders how we have survived as long as we have without busybodies like this getting into every facet of our lives.

Nothing wrong with a good* full English breakfast. Especially not compared to the abomination that is American cheese-which seems to pollute every breakfast option these days.

Alright, but only that bit. I am so sick of picking up loaves of bread and X-sorts of meats here just to have sugar or corn syrup in every bleedin thing.

You do know you can order things without the cheese right?

/american cheese is just recycled plastic anyway and not really a dairy product

We

DON'T put sugar in everything. The food producers do it and it is hard to find any prepared food that isn't loaded with it (and salt and fat). This is why a growing number of us don't eat prepared foods anymore.

Having said that, grandma taught me that is some savory vegetable dishes, a pinch (not a pound) of sugar is just the thing to balance out the flavors and bring out the herb notes. She was right.

We actually enjoy an English breakfast.  I much prefer their idea of bacon to our American version.  And black pudding ain't half bad.

In fact, we regularly enjoy English breakfast here in Los Angeles.
