Q: What can you never eat for breakfast?

Q: What can you never eat for breakfast?
A: Dinner.
I have decided that I can't just do trump memes all the time, so I am also going to do a joke explanation as well today.

This is a riddle. The humor in this joke lies in the fact that the listener was expecting a food would be the answer, but the answer ended up being a meal. That surprises the listener, and is therefore funny.

The answer is also sort of wrong. A better answer would be supper, because dinner is the biggest meal of the day, and supper is the last meal of the day. Theoretically, if the biggest meal of your day is also your breakfast, you could have dinner for breakfast.

I often have breakfast for dinner, but if I had my dinner at breakfast time, and had breakfast foods at it I would be having breakfast for dinner for breakfast.

Actually, I have to apologize for that last part - that was just stupid.
