I love reading about odd news stories especially if they involve sandwiches. I thought it would be fun to share some of the ones I find in Sandwich News.
This just in….
Be a Hero, end the $10 sandwich!– as reported by Columbia Spectator, Students at Columbia College are trying to create a Sandwich Ambassador to help represent the students of Columbia College against having to pay $10 for a sandwich at their college. Good luck to them. If they are paying $10 for a sandwich – it better be GOOD!
Thai protesters give out “Sandwiches for Democracy”– as reported by BT.com– Activists protesting against last month’s military coup in Thailand face a possible two-year jail term if they get too strident, so they have found a new way – handing out “sandwiches for democracy”. Lets just hope they are passing out the condiments on the side- nothing worse then causing food poisoning while trying to be peaceful.
Flaming Hell- World’s hottest sandwich!– as reported by the DailyStar– this sandwich was created to cure the hangover. The Flaming Hell sarnie is topped with a sauce made from the two most fiery chillis, the Trinidad Scorpion and the Bhut Jolokia. The butty registers 2.3million on the Scoville chilli heat scale, can only be handled with latex gloves and is hotter than a police pepper spray. Having to wear gloves in order to eat a sandwich seems pretty intense. Hate to see how that sandwich ends.
Famous Novelists retires from having sandwiches– as reported by The New Yorker– Novelist Philip Roth says “I had my first sandwich when I was three or four. That’s almost eighty years ago. That’s a lot of sandwiches.” Lets take a moment to let that soak in. Now lets take a moment of silence for Philips tastebuds.
