I tend to think of breakfast as perhaps one of the most fun meals of the day, certainly more entertaining than lunch, but perhaps not as exciting as dinner, which tends to have a wider variety of choice and selection. That said, I don't really think of myself as in a state of "fun" while eating breakfast, even when it's eggs, hash browns, and veggie bacon. Then again, if I was making waffles that looked like happy faces, that might indeed be considered fun.
I never had Crazy Cow cereal, but I kinda wish I had.
Apparently I'm not the only one thinking of these kind of issues. In Googling a few things ahead of writing, I stumbled across a Yahoo! Answers question entitled, "Is Making Breakfast Fun?" which included the following enlightening statements:
"i hate it. i'm never up in time for breakfast any way. i don't like breakfast food very much either, so when i am up in time i don't make breakfast."I often prefer to get a bit more sleep than give myself enough time to adequately eat breakfast, so I'll often head out the door with a couple of cereal bars instead of a "real" breakfast. So for me, I'd say breakfast is sometimes, but not often, fun.
"I like cooking breakfast sometimes"
"Eating it is. Making it isn't."
Interestingly, I also encountered the meaning behind the cereal advertising buzzwords "...part of your complete breakfast!" Yahoo! Answers also tells me that this is an admission on the part of cereal makers that their product does not contain a complete line of nutrition that would adequately supply all of your breakfast needs. In particular, things like protein and Vitamin C.
A quick search of Bing Images shows me that there are an incredible number of pancake (or cookie I suppose) molds, which does lend credence to the public's desire to have a fun breakfast. In particular, I liked the Star Wars molds from Geeky-Gadgets.com.
