“What do you call a hotel breakfast that gives you diarrhea?"/"Incontinental.”

A “continental breakfast” is a light breakfast (such as juice, cereal and pastries) that’s often served in a hotel. There is no such thing as an “incontinental breakfast” (incontinent + continental breakfast), but there are jokes.

“Do urologists review their journal articles with peeer groups? Yes, over an occasional incontinental breakfast” was posted on the newsgroup alt.humor.puns on May 28, 2003. “Oops, turns out they meant incontinental breakfast (bran, prune juice, dried fruit). Anti-diarrhea medication: $17.53” was printed in the Times-Colonist (Victoria, BC) on July 4, 2004. “If it makes you sick, is it the incontinental breakfast?” was printed in the National Post (Don Mills, ON) on July 19, 2004.

“If a hotel offers bran muffins and prune juice, is that an incontinental breakfast?” was printed in Here (Moncton, NB) on February 26, 2009. “Stayed at a hotel once, the meal in the morning had prunes, bran flakes, and complimentary diapers. It was an incontinental breakfast” was posted on Twitter by Kevin Matthews on November 7, 2013. “A bran muffin and a glass of prune juice is an incontinental breakfast” was posted on Twitter by ann on September 17, 2014.

“Had a dream I was in a nursing home and all they had on offer was an incontinental breakfast” was posted on Twitter by Jack Cassidy on April 23, 2009. “The morning meal at the nursing home, is that incontinental breakfast?” was posted on Twitter by 온조엘 on February 4, 2011. “Nursing homes serve incontinental breakfast #pun” was posted on Twitter by Camilly Vanilly on July 7, 2015. “What do you call the first meal of the day at a nursing home? Incontinental breakfast” was posted on Twitter by Branch Manager Probs on July 15, 2015.

“you can make any continental breakfast into an incontinental breakfast by pissing in everyone’s cheerios” was posted on Twitter by POOPSCRUFFIN4U on May 9, 2019. “Piss in someone’s Cheerios” is a slang expression meaning to disappoint or irritate someone.

“Continental breakfast implies the existence of Incontinental breakfast.” was posted on Twitter by “to dismember or not to dismember” on December 29, 2019.

“What would be sold at an inconvenience store?"/"Incontinental breakfast” was posted on Twitter by The Doctor on December 3, 2020.

Yes, over an occasional incontinental breakfast ...

4 July 2004, Times-Colonist (Victoria, BC), “Summer road trip from Hell” by Jack Knox, pg. C1:
Oops, turns out they meant incontinental breakfast (bran, prune juice, dried fruit). Anti-diarrhea medication: $17.53.

19 July 2004, National Post (Don Mills, ON), “Family survives U.S. shopping trip” by Rob McKenzie, pg. A2:
Well, I finally figured out which continent they’re talking about in “continental breakfast,” and judging by the frosted mini-donuts, cinnamon rolls and Cheerios, that continent would just have to be the North American continent. (Side note: If it makes you sick, is it the incontinental breakfast?)

26 February 2009, Here (Moncton, NB), “Think he can do it?; John Mazerolle asks. . .well a lot,” pg. A6:
If a hotel offers bran muffins and prune juice, is that an incontinental breakfast?

Signs you’re staying at a bad hotel:
• They changed the name to “Worst Western”
• When you call about the dead hooker in the bathtub, they offer to replace her with a fresh one.
