National Sandwich Day: Revisiting The Age-Old Hot Dog/Sandwich Debate

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Food categorization is a pretty polarizing topic, and this debate has been going on for years - perplexing dinner parties and offices galore. 

The American Heritage Dictionary definition of sandwich has three sections as of 2017: 


a.
Two or more slices of bread with a filling such as meat or cheese placed between them.

b. A partly split long or round roll containing a filling.

c. One slice of bread covered with a filling.

However, as early as 2014, the dictionary's definition was only A - two or more slices of bread. Was the dictionary updated due to the debate? The answer may seem simple to some, but if one slice of bread is a sandwich, that makes avocado toast a sandwich, or flatbreads sandwiches. This debate, like a club sandwich, has layers. Where do you stand? Perhaps this recorded debate, or some of the memes below, will help you decide.

Chernobyl fox chomping down on some bread slices and putting together sandwich.

Lots of new Chernobyl memes have popped up since HBO did a miniseries about the whole disaster, with tons of haunting photos of Chernobyl taking on new meaning now that people have a better understanding of what occured in the incident.
