The Breakfast of Champions

I figure that today we could all use a laugh and my mother, once again, has supplied me with a brilliant one.

She just called me to say that one of the guys who delivers supplies to her office came in today and for some reason, the topic of breakfast came up.
The young man said that he never eats breakfast, which prompted Mama to say...

"Well, they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives you your energy. If you don't eat breakfast, what do you run on all day."

Mother heard the young man respond by saying...

"Cheese Nips."

So, Mama, of course, immediately said...

"Oh, I LOVE Cheese Nips. I eat them all the time. I've been known to eat me a box of Cheese Nips sitting in front of the tv..."

At which time, my mother's co-worker, Mitzi, interrupted her to say...

"Wanda, he didn't say he runs on Cheese Nips. He said he runs on Jesus."


You say Funyuns and I say onions.
You say Cheese Nips and I say Jesus.
Funyuns. Onions.
Cheese Nips. Jesus.
Let's call the whole thing off.
