Fancy a big breakfast tomorrow morning?

If you do, you might want to drop in at the Jesters Diner in Great Yarmouth, England.  The BBC reports:

It prompted calls for it to be banned and had one expert warning that someone could die after eating it.

But the "Kidz Breakfast", described as weighing the same as a small child, has remained the talk of a Norfolk seaside town.

Consisting of a dozen sausages, 12 bacon rashers and enough eggs to be produced from a coop of chickens in a week, Jesters Diner's fry-up in Great Yarmouth contains more than 6,000 calories and weighs in at 9lb (4.08kg).

But despite hundreds being sold after it was first put on the menu 18 months ago, only one person has managed to eat "the baby".

There's more at the link. An earlier report gave additional details.

The "Jesters Challenge", at the cafe on Morton Peto Road, invites contestants to eat the breakfast in 60 minutes, with no additional help, to get it free of charge.

Its price if you fail is £15 [about US $24].

The breakfast is served on a plate covering 2.5 sq ft (0.23 sq m).

The cafe menu claims you can "leave half a stone heavier" by tackling their "ultimate breakfast".

Again, more at the link.  (A 'stone' is fourteen pounds.)

I reckon that could feed half-a-dozen people with normal-size portions.  The thought of tackling it alone is enough to give me the collywobbles!

"collywobbles", I haven't heard that term in decades. Thank you for reminding me of the joys found in the language.

Breakfast for 5 or 6 for $24? Sounds like a deal to me. Eat it by myself? I don't think so!
