: : : : : Another question from the Brit-coms on PBS: what do you get when someone serves a "full English breakfast"?

: : : : The full heart attack on a plate - bacon, sausages, fried eggs, fried bread, tomatoes, mushrooms and anything else there's room for. I go for the vegi-sausage version myself so I'm not an authority, but I get the impression that the full English is easier to find in Ireland these days.

: : : You forgot the black and white pudding, and the tinned beans!

: : What's black and white pudding? Beans for breakfast?

: Believe me, you'd rather not know, and yes, we eat baked beans for breakfast.

That will get you going in the morning.
