If you failed to try your eggs with the house artisanal ketchup, you should hide your head in a bag.

A diner's 'Scalia Is a Douche' brunch special sold out almost immediately.

If there are two things the world remembers from Friday's landmark Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision, it's:

1. The overwhelming outpouring of goodwill towards an historically oppressed minority from people from all walks of American life, and

2. Holy shit, Antonin Scalia is an incredible douche!

Yeah, the Court's resident cranky old man (Clarence Thomas isn't animated enough to be defined as "cranky"—he's more "sepulchral") really solidified his legacy as one of the most embittered and execrable political figures in America's long line of embittered and execrable political figures when he delivered one of the ugliest and vitriolic dissent statements in judicial history.

And the honorable Justice has justly been "honored" with his own breakfast platter at Philadelphia's rightfully beloved* Morning Glory Diner.

When it opened at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning, the South Philly establishment had the ingredients to make 150 servings of the 'Antonin Scalia Is A Douche' breakfast special (eggs, andouille sausage, tomato, scallions and Monterey jack cheese, available in both scrambled and frittata forms). By 10 a.m., it was sold out. Bear in mind, this is tiny establishment, so for it to sell 150 of these plates in two hours is remarkably remarkable.

"Not one single person complained,” owner Carol Mickey revealed to the Philly-centric Billy Penn blog. “The atmosphere in here was really wonderful. People were just loving saying it! 'I'll have the Scalia is a Douche, please.'"

I'm no legal expert, but I'm pretty sure this sets a precedent for future breakfast specials. We really need this frittata to go nationwide.

* Full disclosure: I nearly recused myself from writing this post on the grounds that I used to live literally 30 feet from this establishment and would eat there at every available possibility. If you're ever in there, I strongly recommend the Glory Cakes with blueberry and strawberry.
