    What are the criteria for a sandwich anyway?
    Meat between bread? The classic grilled cheese says no, so....moving on...

    What about pita bread? Is a wrap or a gyro a sandwich then, too? Stuff between a type of bread.

    How about then tacos, or burritos, enchiladas, fajitas and so forth?

    Is that not also just stuff between a type of bread?

    WTF is a sandwich actually? IDGAF, I'll eat them all with joy.

    Speaking of which, brb

    It's a chicken and egg problem. We call them sandwiches because the Earl's title was applied to the meal he favoured. Food contained in bread preceded his popularizing the meal, so I'd say the traditional terms are more properly applied to those meals.

    A croissant is a pastry but you wouldn't call a pie a croissant.

    This could be a good thread. You will read this: The Story of the Sandwich, and then respond.

    My direct answer on a hot dog in a bun? Yes, it's a sandwich as far as I'm concerned, albeit one step up from nitrite/nitrate loaded cancerous garbage, nevertheless a sandwich in it's rightful class. Google the history of deli meats and learn how they were designated as garbage food for the less fortunate from inception.

    A hotdog is an extrusion.

    Well? It sucks being me, as no one makes three-legged pants. :D

    I LOVE THAT! Tell me stuff about it - the tone, what you're shooting for, the guitar(s) you plug into it, anything.

    Not much to tell Vin. Les Paul Studio(2014) is my fav I guess. An'86 MIJ Squire Strat I dig too.
    Got a Tele 5 stringed up in Open G for you know who!
    Here's the Gibby and my recent board set up.

    One might make the case that everything we might consider a sandwich might also be considered a taco.

    Who was first to hold his creation up high and proclaim it by name?

    The Earl of Sammich's Butler?

    Or Montezuma's maid?

    I think you have an extrusion delusion.

    It's halfway between sexual harassment and racist jokes about Koreans

    If you take 2 slices of pizza, and turn them both toppings in/crust out, do you now have a sandwich?
