Scene: Prairie stash is ordering food at a restaurant

PS: Iíll order the sandwich

Waiter: what type of sandwich would you like?

PS: it doesnít matter, Iím mainly in it for the bread. I donít like to concern myself with the actual flavors of whatís between the bread. Just tell the kitchen to make me something and please keep the filling ratio to a minimum!

Why would I be ordering a sandwich at a restaurant from a waiter? Now you're hitting below the belt. ;)

But you are right, I'm very concerned with the flavour of the bread! If you're ordering a sandwich without regard to the appropriate bread being used you may as well order the soup. Bread is the most fundamental part of a sandwich; are you suggesting I shouldn't be concerned if the restaurant didn't have fantastic tasting bread? The first thing you taste when biting a sandwich is the bread, if you build the sandwich correctly.

The filling is the second thing you taste. A filling should leave a lasting impression to make you want another bite. WIthout both parts working in tandem a sandwich isn't complete. Never once have I sugested the filling isn't important, without a good filling you just have a slice of bread. So as not to piss off the bread crowd, bread is also delicious (however I would never say bread is a sandwich either).

I've been eating a lot of pulled pork this week, I had pulled pork on toast last night and a pulled pork sandwich for lunch. Using basic math problem solving skills; how many slices of bread did Prairie Stash eat?

1, because bulled pork sandwiches should not be served on sliced bread




Also, the ideal sandwich is a submarine sandwich, but with the insides of the bread hollowed out to create more of a shell.  Ideally to the point that the bread actually closes again and touches itself all the way around.  Preferrably filled with beans and rice. 

That sandwich is topographically a burrito.  In fact, it's better if the submarine bread is actually a flour tortilla.

The ideal submarine sandwich is a burrito.


P.S.  hotdogs are sandwiches, open face sandwiches are not

I fixed waiter above for you

And it’s impossible to know because you mentioned this entire week and yet failed to categorize how many other meals in the week had sandwiches or toast based meals. Perhaps even one of the meals could have been a half sandwich.

Pick it up and eat it while wearing an expensive shirt. If it makes you nervous, then its not a sandwich. You should be able to play cards while eating it, as the good Earl intended.

No way.  Your rule means that pulled pork sandwiches aren't sandwiches.

Nor the messiest food item ever, the fried egg and bacon sandwich.

You've reminded me of this:
