The slogan ‘Breakfast of Champions’ might have quite a few connotations. It had been initially used from the advertising slogan for the Wheaties brand of breakfast cereal which was known for having famous athletes on its packaging and declaring they had the product for breakfast, suggesting that it helped them turn out to be champions. It soon became a somewhat ironic expression or jargon for just about any food or drink which may be commonly regarded as being unhealthy. This is especially the situation if one consumes it for breakfast or in the morning frequently. For instance quite a few people joke about a morning routine as the Breakfast of Champions is something the daily early morning ritual of having a few cigarettes and a couple cups of coffee to recieve the fix of nicotine and caffeine to be able to face the day. For other people it could possibly imply the regular eating of a similar breakfast, like bacon and eggs. Some claim that they need their Breakfast of Champions to effectively awaken in the morning and to get their bowels going ahead of facing the day ahead.
In contrast to that, the Breakfast of Champions is also a 1973 book also known as Goodbye Blue Monday the American author Kurt Vonnegut. The story is set in the fictional town of Midland City and it tells the story of two lonesome, thin, rather old white males on a planet which was dying. One of these males, Dwayne Hoover, is a Pontiac seller owns a Burger Chef franchise who becomes obsessed with the fictional works of Kilgore Trout, taking what his science fiction writings for a actual reality. As the book begins, Trout goes to Midland City for a conference appearance where he meets Dwayne Hoover and Dwayne is inspired to run amok from there. It is actually not too obvious in the novel what the title of the book has to do with the widely used use of the term, breakfast of champions.
