This Day in History: Holy Breakfast

This day in history:

In 1540, the Jesuit order is established.

As I am sure you know, the order was, “Bacon and eggs, over hard.”

Naturally, this set up a rivalry with the Benedictine order, who quite naturally broke their fasts on Eggs Benedict.

Peace was brokered between the two factions by the Carmelite Nuns – no one can stay angry while eating a low-calorie caramel roll first thing in the morning.
