“Brunch is the meal you eat when you're too drunk to get up for breakfast.”
“Now you've ruined two meals: Lunch and Breakfast!”
In gastronomics, brunch is a light meal traditionally served with wine, crêpes Suzette, split bananas, baked beans, watermelon, deep-fried Mars Bars, buffalo wings, grog, Diet Lard, Freedom fries, Mountain Dew™, salt, ice cream, Little Debbie Snack Cakes®, jalapeño insanity peppers, SPAM™ and copious quantities of Alka-Seltzer™.
Brunch was first discovered by a ravaging gang of surprised dietitians in 1993. Its placement within the daily meal structure served to partially fill that vast swath of temporal emptiness between the after-breakfast coffee-and-danish break and the pre-lunch snack.
British Brunch Time
Brunch has become a such a permanent fixture in British life that, precisely at 10:45 AM every morning (as indicated by the giant deafening bells, whistles, and gongs of Big Ben), every single other activity is suspended. For the next 15 minutes, British people everywhere engage in a virtual orgy of unrestrained gluttony, raucous drinking, nude ballroom dancing, and casual conversation.
During brunch, everyone rushes to the bakery, in hopes of finding pies filled with minced meats. The small roads are almost completely cleared, and this is the critical time when the carnivorous pigeons of Greater Londontown arrive in alarming numbers to viciously attack the helpless naked people and their exposed foods. All in good fun, of course.
Additional nonstandard meals of Europe
An additional nonstandard meal, poetically known as "l'supper" by the French, combines all of the traditional elements of the meals lunch and dinner, of which is thoroughly mixed in a vast trough, jumped up and down on for a few minutes and drenched in a delicate cheesy sauce.
Furthermore, many reputable German sources claim that there also exists a strange meal called "sexfest", which, supposedly, is a three-way combination of supper, oral sex, and breakfast. Appropriately, it begins late at night, and tends to continue well into the early morning hours (amidst much indigenous flugelhorning).
New York Brunch
Also known as "schmearfest", this hangover cure is even referenced on the dubious Wikipedia site, which although not known for factual account, can be relied upon for haughty humor and refusing to accept useful editing. While popular in hipster hangouts as late as 3 PM, brunch in New York lends credence to the established lack of class and decorum in a city filled with douchebags and swindlers. Unlike most cities' refined late morning noshes, New Yorkers belly up to a trough of steaming offal, sometimes accompanied by hard rings of bread named after Ed Bagley Jr. In more touristy haunts, one may find something similar to a traditional brunch, but with certain substitutions. Ask for some Raspberry preserves and you will be treated to a local specialty known as the "Bronx cheer."
What a ridiculous word
The word brunch is so ridiculous that it causes some people to go bwargh whenever they hear it due to its very ridiculousness
