    You've stopped in Leigh Delemare Services on the way home and are hungry. You know there's nothing in the house plus you can't be bothered to cook when you get in. The 5 item breakfast is £7.29 and you've only got a ten spot after giving you're other tenner to a pikey to buy petrol with after they started crying in the car park. The 5 item is all you can afford now. You could play a Wildcard and get an extra item for £1.25 but you wouldn't have enough money for tea which is £2.70. So you have to decide.

    Choose 5 from

    Bacon, Sausage, Fried Egg, Tomatos, Beans, Hash Brown, Black Pudding, Mushrooms, Slice Toast, Fried Bread, Veggie sausage, Fried Potatoes, Half Fresh Tomato.

    Can you balance this out? You don't want it too dry but blow me you want some meat as well don't you? Plus they charge for toast the bastards so how are you going to add the bulk. What about tea? Got to wash it down with something surely but you might think the juice from tomatoes will sort your thirst out. I dunno.

    It's a conundrum no denying. One of the great questions of our age. If you play along, myself and others will be making judgments about you in my head based on what you plump for. Some may even go on the ignore list.

    Actually, scratch my answer for now, there's more questions that need answering.

    Bacon - how has it been cooked? In an overcrowded baking tray in the oven? Is half of it steamed & half dry & crumbly?
    Sausage - again, how has it been cooked? Is one half burnt, the other pale & flacid?
    Egg - baked with dry yolks?
    Tomatoes - Tinned hopefully.
    Beans - cheap & stewed, quite like these actually.
    Hash brown - are they hard in the middle, burnt on the outside?
    Black pudding - Are they dry & crumbly?
    Mushrooms - Tinned?
    Toast - What kind of bread? Thick white sliced I'd wager. Has it actually been toasted?
    Fried Bread - Normally just shown a frying pan or deep fried, what's it like?
    Veggie sausage - normally have to wait for these or they've been sat under the lights until you could used them as a paper weight.
    Fried potatoes - never have these, yesterdays main reheated
    Fresh tomato - normally raw.

    I'd probably go to Marks & get a noodle salad or some pork pies.

    That's not one of the options and everything else is standard motorway fare so either buckle and fly right or fuck off.

    Actually I’ve changed my mind too.

    The shite they serve up in those places is fucking rank.

    As you gave the breakfast option it’s obviously morning. Therefore I’ll pull off the motorway, get on the side roads and look for one of those burger van things. For about a fiver I can get a breakfast roll - bacon sausage egg mushroom black pudding etc. all freshly cooked on those black things. I’m betting I’ll even get a can of Fanta thrown in for the fiver too. Then once I’m fully refreshed, back on the motorway, stop at the services to spend the other fiver on a jazz mag or two. Back to the car, quick five knuckle shuffle and then on with the journey home.

    Food drink and a squirt for a tenner - good times.

    Bacon, Sausage, Fried Egg, Tomatoes and mushrooms, lowest carb options, or I would pop in the Greggs there for a bacon roll and a flat white which would be half the price even though they don't take staff discount cards :nope:

    If TDA did this one we'd probably opt for a the jambon beurre & a coffee & still have enough change for a packet of gitanes.
