Is it a sammich?




I’ve never seen ice cream between waffles described as a sandwich, but I have seen ice cream between chocolate wafers or cookies described as a sandwich.

Somebody got a new box of matches late last week. :yikes:


Sandwich relativism: It’s a sandwich if you want it to be.

The sun’s not yellow, it’s chicken.

Why do people with no stake in it have to butt in?

Where is your god now?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but there’s already been an official ruling on this issue.

In Glendale, Arizona, it is illegal to drive a car in reverse, so virtually everyone in a mall parking lot is breaking the law.

Laws can be silly.

A pop tart is pretty close to structurally neutral. Better anarchist examples would be a jelly donut, a cannoli, or a Twinkie.

Also, I note that the examples given all have vaguely bread-like or cakelike outer layers. True structural anarchy would include dolmades, cabbage rolls, and leaf-wrapped bulgogi and 3 Musketeers bars. At that point, I would shift to true neutral.

It’s structurally neutral because it covers both (2) sides but not more. A poptart does not fit this definition.

You are correct, structural rebel could be any wrapping of any kind as long as it’s food. The examples don’t show this but that’s what the definition states.

Does a poptart become a sandwich once you’ve eaten all of the edges?

The invention of the sandwich was due to the gambling problem of the 4th Earl of Sandwich. He didn’t want to leave the card table so he had his cook prepare him something he could eat at the table. His specific order was meat between two pieces of bread. Then other people wanted the same as Sandwich which eventually got shortened to just sandwich.

So the three criteria are:

  1. Not interfere with playing cards at the same time.
  2. 2 pieces of bread
  3. Meat

So really the poll needs a third axis.

Only if you’re a structural purist/ingredient rebel. Which, in that case, would mean that 3 pieces of bread stacked together would be considered a sandwich.

Lets cut to the chase, where does the McRib sandwich fit in this discussion?


PLEASE: will someone at 2363 stage an intervention and change Matt’s password to CD? It’s for the best.

I need some help with a categorization. Where would a “wish sandwich” fit?


It appears to be structurally pure but I cannot figure out where it fits on the ingredient axis.
