“Continental breakfasts should be served on tectonic plates”

A “continental breakfast” isn’t the size of an actual continent, but there’s a joke:

“Continental breakfasts should be served on tectonic plates.”

“I’ve lived in California all my life, but I still can’t get the drift of serving Continental Breakfast on Tectonic Plates” was posted on the newsgroup rec.arts.comics.elfquest on August 1, 1995.


Wikipedia: Breakfast
Europe
A typical Continental breakfast consists of coffee and milk (often mixed as Cappuccino or latte) or hot chocolate with a variety of sweet cakes such as brioche and pastries such as croissant, often with a sweet jam, cream, or chocolate filling. It is often served with juice. The continental breakfast may also include sliced cold meats, such as salami or ham, and yogurt or cereal. Some countries of Europe add a bit of fruit and cheese to the bread menu, occasionally even a boiled egg or a little salami.
