You Canadians have such a distorted image of us Yanks . Nobody eats just one egg for breakfast and there is no jelly on the toast .

AWE! Isn't that a cute little breakfast.

Ya get that from the kids menu? It comes with a little toy gun and some bread to shoot at. Looks like they even put some coffee in that little cup of milk.

Lose the toast and it would be a great breakfast for those many paleo permaculturalists here at permies!

To be fair to the Canadians , my Quebecois great-grandfathers breakfast table would have looked just like that except there would be an ashtray with a smoking Gauloises .

I have been told that Gauloises are made from the sweepings of Gitanes after the bistro closes at night. lol

Exactly! Lose the toast, add a few more eggs and keep the coffee black. Then it would be just about right...




for my 5 year old. SLAM! :p

Let the Europeans know then that Americans are not apologizing for their breakfast traditions !

- Keeping the neighborhoods free of bacon thieves since 1911 !

I was a bit confused when I saw this. I thought yankees were easterners. I had to look it up. Yankee Apparently it's more complex than I thought.

As long as we're adding side dishes, where's the home fries? Hash browns? Not paleo but... it's tradition. I could do grits too. I spent some time in Mississippi and that's where I met grits. Oh grits... I love you.

damnit now I want grits.

LOL - Craig - I can see where the confusion comes in!

Being a Westerner, we think of anyone east of the Mississippi as "Easterners" - whether NE (all those dinky states) or SE (those folks with the weird flag painted on the hood of their muscle cars). Yankees to me always meant those folks who "fought for the Union" side in the Civil War (which technically did include some westerners).

And now I want grits.

Yes, I take the Mason/Dixon line as the division. South of the line, anywhere that is hilly, the bacon may be on the hoof --- Thus the gun.

You can tell which side of the Mason/Dixon line you are on when they bring you your meal:
Hot biscuit? Y'all are south.
Cold bread? You're north.

No, the bacon is all wrong, there's no maple syrup and we'd need a deer rifle. The cup would mention a charity run or that it belongs to the parents of an honor student.

I used to have those plates (they were given to my friend from her grandma, and then given to me). I ended up giving them to my sister-in-law, who also oddly had the same set. I had no idea they were so popular!

Interesting. No one has commented on the position of the gun. To me, it is the most inappropriate element of the composition.

It's positioned that way so you can do this after finishing the meal.




You all can do that right? I'm not the only one, right?
or perhaps you are not yet fully trained in the style of Bacon-fu.

The gun is positioned wrong, butt should be pointed the other way for rapid access, unless your grabbing cross draw style with the left hand. It's a 9mm too, a real American would have a .45, 1911 or a SIG 220 instead of that 226.

Craig - thank you for reminding me of one of the hands-down funniest (and most absurd) movies I've ever seen - Kung Fu Hustle.

Now I have to watch it again.

This is probably the last breakfast for this guy. He's dying by degrees from clogged arteries and acne. The gun is positioned to finish the job if the bacon doesn't.

Or, maybe someone keeps nagging the diner about the need for fruit and vegetables in a healthy diet. The gun is there to reinforce a request for silence on the matter.

The gun might be there because he's tired of people like me telling him his arteries would be fine if he'd give up the toast. "You can take my toast away when you pry it from my cold dead hands."

I'm in a draw to see Danny Bhoy. I called the radio station with a story of a dangerous thing I did in my youth. Fingers crossed. I've won before, but just on merit, without the draw.

I usually go for a see food breakfast. I rummage around until I see food.
