Military-grade breakfast now includes scourge of homebuyers

The British Army is adding avocado on toast to its breakfast options in a bid to catch up with dominant brunch trends add range to a breakfast offering that is decidedly rooted in greasy spoon tradition. The official military line is that it’s because too many soldiers are overweight or obese according to BMI measurements — which are not necessarily useful indicators of body composition and, anyway, does this matter — but one high-ranking official has described the situation as a “national security threat.”

And lo, avocado toast is now a solution to national security crises, as well as millennial financial security and home ownership. Bearing in mind that complaints about a recent advertising campaign to increase diversity in recruitment centred on the adverts being “too politically correct,” expect this flagrant concession to snowflake millennials to go down super-well with Britain’s military super fans!
