Mexican breakfast

Definition

Slang

  • noun a cigarette and a glass of water. A witticism originating in the USA, where the Mexican reference is supposed to evoke poverty and lack of sophistication or competence. There have been other, probably later, variations on this pattern, among which are dingo’s breakfast and ‘pelican’s breakfast’ (a glass of water).
