What is the Breakfast of Champions?
The mantra ‘Breakfast of Champions’ may have various meanings. It had been initially used from the advertising mantra for the Wheaties brand of breakfast cereal which was noted for featuring famous sports athletes on its product packaging and claiming they had the product in the morning, suggesting that it helped them turn out to be winners. It soon became a relatively ironic expression or slang for almost any food or drink that may be frequently considered to be unhealthy. This is especially the case if one consumes it for breakfast or early in the day on a regular basis. One example is some people joke about a morning ritual as the Breakfast of Champions is a thing the daily morning ritual of having a few smokes and a couple mugs of coffee in order to get the fix of nicotine and caffeine to be able to face your day. For some it could possibly imply the regular consumption of the identical breakfast every day, like bacon and eggs. Some claim they need their Breakfast of Champions to properly wake up in the morning and to get their bowels moving prior to facing the day ahead.
In contrast to this, the Breakfast of Champions is also a 1973 book also known as Goodbye Blue Monday an American author Kurt Vonnegut. The book is set in the imaginary city of Midland City and it tells the story of two lonely, thin, rather old white males on a planet that was dying. One of those males, Dwayne Hoover, is a Pontiac seller owns a Burger Chef business who becomes obsessed with the fictional writings of Kilgore Trout, taking what his science fiction articles for a literal reality. As the narrative starts, Trout goes to Midland City for a convention appearance where he meets Dwayne Hoover and Dwayne is motivated to run amok following that. It is actually not really that clear in the story what the title of the book has to do with the widely used use of the term, breakfast of champions.
