Two chicken biscuits and a bottle of Coke, please.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Well, that’s silly British bacon. Anyone would prefer any sausage, if that’s a necessary decision.

Two fried eggs, toast, bacon, baked beans, hash browns, mushrooms and maybe a fried tomato. If I'm going to have any sauce, it's going to be chili garlic sauce. HP is an abomination and yeah, fuck ketchup too. One big mug of strong fresh coffee too, please.
Of course, this would all be incredible if I made it myself, but I might search one out when I'm in London next week.

Subtract the shrooms and tomato (I prefer a fresh locally grown ' mato) and add blood pudding or especially white pudding from
Stornoway and that would be my idea of the best meal of the day.

Hash browns have NO PLACE with a full English.

They definitely do. A place that takes up at least 1/4 of my plate. Get with the modern, Grandad!

I like the suggestion of white pudding, that's a good middle-classification of a good honest breakfast, adding a specific location doubly so. Having grown up in the shadow of the Heinz factory in Kitt Green, and regularly walked through Porters' wood at its side, seeing such a lovely location polluted with masses of bright orange colouring and the stench of that weirdly specific Heinz tomato sauce smell hanging in the air, means that beans are effectively an ethical no-no for me. Aside from which - baked beans are for kids, surely?

They're not a breakfast food at any rate. I remember David Millar's autobiography - the Italian cyclists used to take the piss all the time: "Tell us David, do British people really eat baked beans for breakfast?"

I had the full-on thing when I was over there. I forget what was in it. Everything.

I wasn't hungry again for 12 HOURS.
