Thanks. Neither are sandwiches and it's time we understood what was really going on here.

Hamburgers and hot dogs are not sandwiches. If they were, people would order a hot dog sandwich, or a hamburger sandwich, which they don't. It's like saying toast with butter is really a pizza. It's not. Any troll who insists hot dogs or hamburgers are sandwiches should be required to order them as sandwiches and see what happens. Better yet, they should be banned from eating them.

And yet I can order a "tuna melt" without saying sandwich just fine...

Tuna Melts are listed on menus under "Sandwiches." Hot dogs and hamburgers are not.

We aren't going to be one of those sites that's all daisy about it. WE KNOW WHAT A SANDWICH IS.

The trick is, you can never mic-drop this, because there is no definition of "sandwich" that doesn't definitely include hamburgers, and probably include hot dogs.

So I am in full agreement with the right-thinking, God-fearing Americans here who know that neither is a sandwich, but if you are ever challenged on it, there's nothing to point to other than "that's my feeling", while they're pointing at their dictionaries.

It's a hard life for us, fellow non-sandwichers.

We do all the work around here though and that has to account for something.

If hot dogs and burgers are sandwiches then bagels are cream cheese sandwiches and loaves of bread are bread sandwiches.

And a pizza is an open-faced Italian sandwich!

Last night at Sonic I ordered a Footlong Chili Cheese Sandwich. The lady said they didn't have a footlong sandwich, only the hot dog. I said yes, the sandwich. She then asked me if I was having a stroke.

I think the language has changed since the inception of the two items in question. Hot dogs used to be called frankfurters back in the day and I believe 'hamburger sandwich' was the old timey moniker of the other one. They might not fall squarely in the sandwich category but it's close enough for government work.

Find me a single restaurant menu that has burgers under the heading "sandwiches", instead of a separate "burgers" section or even under "burgers & sandwiches".

Find one.

One.

1.

I believe I'll have the scrambled eggs and chicken livers with a glass of buttermilk, please.

I should have clarified that Old News entries were not acceptable.
