Start Your Day the Kelloggs Way, Old Chap

While weekday breakfasts in Britain and Ireland often consist of a brief meal of cereal and/or toast, the fry-up is commonly eaten in a leisurely fashion on Saturday or Sunday mornings.

The history of corn flakes goes back to the late 19th century, when a group of Seventh-day Adventists began to develop new food to meet the standards of their strict vegan diet. Members of the group experimented with a number of different grains, including wheat, oats, rice, barley, and of course corn. In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the superintendent of The Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan and an Adventist, used these recipes as part of a strict vegetarian regimen for his patients, which also included no alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine. The diet he imposed consisted entirely of bland foods, since he believed in sexual abstinence and following the precepts of Sylvester Graham, the inventor of graham crackers and graham bread and felt that spicy or sweet foods would increase passions, while cornflakes would have an anaphrodisiac property or lowered the sex drive.

Volkswagen Bollocks

Volkswagen AG, or VW, is an automobile manufacturer based in Wolfsburg, Germany. It forms the core of Volkswagen Group and is the world’s fourth largest car producer after Toyota, GM and Ford, respectively.

The name means “people’s car” in German. Its German tagline is “Aus Liebe zum Automobil”, which is translated as “For the love of the car” – or, “For Love of the People’s Cars”, as translated by VW in other languages, though in direct translation it reads “Out of love for the car.”

Bollocks” is a word of Anglo Saxon origin, meaning testicles in British English and in Hiberno-English. The word is often used figuratively, most commonly as a noun to mean “nonsense” or as an expletive following a minor accident or misfortune, but also in a number of other ways: as an adjective to mean “poor quality” or “useless”, as a noun to mean “top quality” or “perfection” (e.g., “That bike is the dog’s bollocks!”), and in various compound expressions.

Hot dog attacks Wall’s Sausages

Wall’s are a prominent manufacturer of sausages in the United Kingdom.

English, Scottish and Welsh sausages, or bangers (so named for their tendency to explode during cooking if poorly made), for example, normally have a significant amount of rusk, or bread crumbs, and are less meaty than sausages in other styles. Bangers are also used to make toad in the hole. They are an essential part of a full English breakfast, and are usually offered with an Irish breakfast. According to Sausagefans.com, in Britain alone there are over 470 different types of sausages. The British sausage was once the butt of a joke on Yes Minister, where it was to be renamed by European Union directive on all labels as the “Low Density, High Fat, Emulsified Offal Tube”.

Marmite Breastfeeding

Marmite is a British savoury spread made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing. It is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful taste that polarises consumer opinion. This is reflected in the company’s marketing slogan: “Love it or hate it”.

Breastfeeding is the feeding of an infant or young child with milk from a woman’s breasts. Babies have a sucking reflex that enables them to suck and swallow milk. Experimental evidence suggests that, with few exceptions, human breast milk is the best source of nourishment for human infants. Experts still disagree about how long breastfeeding should continue to gain the most benefit, and how much extra risk is involved in using breast milk substitutes.

Vomiting (also throwing up or emesis) is the forceful expulsion of the contents of one’s stomach through the mouth and sometimes the nose. Vomiting may result from many causes, ranging from gastritis or poisoning to brain tumors, or elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). The feeling that one is about to vomit is called nausea.
