    What's a Sandwich?

    Secular Talk on Twitter: "Is a hotdog technically a sandwich?" / Twitter
    had response
    Michael Grunder on Twitter: "@KyleKulinski Here's a technical diagram https://t.co/ldginwvFim" / Twitter

    The Sandwich Alignment Chart: modeled after the Dungeons and Dragons one:
    • Lawful - Neutral - Chaotic
    • Good - Neutral - Evil

    What's in the picture that that tweet links to:

    Structure:
    • Purist: A sandwich must have a classic sandwich shape: two pieces of bread/baked product, with toppings in between
    • Neutral: The container must be on either side of the toppings, but not necessarily two separate pieces
    • Rebel: Can contain any food enveloped in any way by a containing food

    Ingredients:
    • Purist: Must have classic sandwich toppings: meat, cheese, lettuce, condiments, etc.
    • Neutral: Can contain a broader scope of savoury ingredients
    • Rebel: Can contain literally any food products sandwiched together

    The sandwiches:
    • S P, I P: BLT
    • S P: I N: Chip Butty
    • S P: I R: Ice Cream between Waffles
    • S N, I P: Sub
    • S N, I N: Hot Dog
    • S N, I R: Ice Cream Taco
    • S R, I P: Chicken Wrap
    • S R, I N: Burrito
    • S R, I R: Pop-Tart

    The diagonal:
    • S & I P: Hardline Traditionalist
    • S & I N: True Neutral
    • S & I R: Radical Sandwich Anarchy

    A pop tart is not a sandwich. It is a pastry. Pastries are not sandwiches. A pie therefore, is not a sandwich. Even if it is a filling between between wheat based materials.

    I'd say a pop tart isn't a sandwich as it doesn't involve a baked bread in any shape or form. It'd be more accurate to call a jelly donut a sandwich.

    A hot dog is just a poor man's sausage hoagie, which is also a sandwich.

    Sandwich has been in Cape Cod for centuries.

    I’ve used hamburger buns to make sandwiches so I don’t see why hotdog buns should be excluded. Though I think it would be good form to split the hotdog bun in two, not roll up your deli meat into a hotdog shape. Anyone over the age of twelve would be asked to leave for doing so.

    Anything wrapped in flat bread is a wrap.

    Anything edible 'sandwiched' between two pieces of bread.

    If you fold your slice of pizza does that make it a sandwich? If not, then how can anything that doesn't have 2 separate pieces of bread qualify?

    Maybe, since the dough is cooked with the other ingredients already on it, that makes folded pizza not a sandwich, for similar reasons that a calzone is not, b/c if it is then a cherry pie is a sandwich.

    Also, does it even need bread or grain-based product as the outside? What about a Jibarito? It has all the qualities of a standard steak sandwich except the "bread" is actual flatted fried plantains (and it's amazing).



    This is a dangerous discussion. Wars have been started over less.

    It is mystifying to me how some people are able to navigate reality given what they find perplexing.
