What Europeans Think Americans Eat for Breakfast.

Sent by a friend who said someone thought I'd taken the picture to which Old NFO replied "It couldn't have been her.  Brigid would have laid the pistol on its left side to make it faster to pick up!!"

HA!  (but it's making my triple berry muffin  this morning look sort of wimpy now).

  2. That could be breakfast here but I prefer white toast and my coffee black...also sidearms go to the left side of the place setting for us proper-handed folk.

  3. In my formal upbringing we were taught that the pistol goes directly above the dessert fork. If silver and crystal is used then a stainless pistol, or revolver should be used.

  4. That pile of bacon reminds me of the BLT at Tony's I-75 restaurant in Michigan. It has 1 lb of bacon (pre-cooked weight).

  5. And the proper place mat would be firearms cleaning mat.

  6. Not true at all. We think you have a mountain of pancakes. That looks like an English breakfast to me. But yes, if European media are to be believed you will inevitably shoot someone before breakfast.

  7. But in the absence of silverware, the pistol may be placed within easy reach of the dominant hand, but must never be pointed in a direction that threatens the coffee.

  8. MMMMM Bacon!
    And what Murphy's Law said!
    (and the grip frame is facing the wrong direction for right-handers - what do Euros know?)

  9. So they have a fairly accurate picture of the event then :)

  10. I am absolutely certain that your triple berry muffins are not wimpy. Beside you being vested in solid good food, there is a grace about you. As to what Europeans think? Sometimes right, sometimes wrong, always jealous. I may not be the best American, but that is what I am in any case. Be well.

  11. Take away the toast and that's a perfectly healthy breakfast! What do they expect? Muesli?

  12. Silly Europeans. That's not an accurate picture, there should be 2 eggs and a few sausage patties. Also, an extra magazine next to the spoon.

  13. Where is the other egg, and the hash browns?
