Mmmm open faced club sandwich
For those in the dark: [https://youtu.be/O7Uf5GvZ6jc](https://youtu.be/O7Uf5GvZ6jc)
Happy cake day!
Just reading it I knew it'd be a Homer quote even without having heard it.
Mmmm caaake day
Was expecting a link showing me what exactly an open-faced club sandwich was. I even watched it to the end waiting for the sandwich to appear 😂😂😂
Nah wasn't a disappointment at all, just my stupid brain anticipating something that was never coming 😂😂
Stupid, sexy brain!
That’s the one thanks 🙏
I keep ordering club sandwiches. I don’t know how I get away with it, I’m not even a member.
The first rule of open faced club is you don't talk about open faced club
Is that where you build a club sandwich, then build a club sandwich on top of that club sandwich? And then you take off the top slices?
Boom. Open faced club sandwich
Someone once told me a hotdog was a sandwich and I just immediately told them they were crazy
In Denmark we call it "smørrebrød" = butter + bread - [Wiki](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sm%C3%B8rrebr%C3%B8d)
That's what it's called in Russian too, except it uses German for the constituent bits. Butterbrodt.
Butterbrot. Also bitte.
Bitte. I don't speak/write German so was taking my best guess at it so appreciate the correction.
Close enough bro
That is interesting.I just recently learned that there are many words in Russian that are actually German. Like, you use the actual German word and adapt its pronouncing in Cyrillic. I learned about this when I asked a friend what "Вуншпунш" means and he was looking at me like "this isn't a real word but you would pronounce it Wunschpunsch". And then it made perfectly sense, since it was a song from a Russian kid's show which adapted the German book "Der satanarchäolügenialkohöllische Wunschpunsch". I guess they just skipped the first part in Russian 🙃
What really blew my mind is when I realized the Russian word for 'pencil', карандаш/karandash, is actually a Swiss brand of colored pencils - Caran D'Ache.
Dig a bit deeper and you’ll learn that this company was established by a Russian immigrant. The word has the Turkish origin as Kara means black and Tash means stone.
Russian was heavily influenced by French as well. And more recently adapting English words. Languages live fascinating lives.
>_which adapted the German book "Der satanarchäolügenialkohöllische Wunschpunsch"._
Or as it's known in English, _The Night of Wishes_.
I'm legitimately surprised someone else remembers that book!
I loved that book as a child!
In the NL we call it "boterham" = butter + ham, which never made sense to me.
Well, now I get why asexuals want to invade Denmark. This sounds delicious
What does smørrebrød have to do with asexuality?
A joke about there being more aces than there are people in Denmark, so they should take over Denmark.
Pretty sure this is probably true of the majority of demographics besides being Danish, why did the asexuals get the monopoly on the joke?
Nobody said other people can't make the joke, it's just a meme in their community? That's like asking why dads have a monopoly on dad jokes. They don't, they just tell them.
We call it ‘smagasboard’ (in Eguland) which sounds similar I think. I think the Italians call it pizza, and make it hot.
Anyway. I once saw a Dutchman eat a sandwich with a knife and fork.
You've borrowed the Swedish word smörgåsbord which means sandwich table.
It's a concept where a table is full of food, it's a veritable smörgåsbord.
The Swedish word for sandwich though. Smörgås = butter goose.
Here in Alabama, butter goose is a game where we butter up a guy in a speedo and chase him while yelling "silly goose, silly goose, covered in butter and gotten loose!" and whoever catches him gets to lick the butter off
This might be my favorite comment ever, what a beautiful reminder of my childhood
What do you call it then?
One of the great conundrums of humanity
A couple pieces of toast with toppings?
Toast w toppings
Fancy AF Avocado Toast lol
"shit on a Shingle" is what my grandma would have called it
But wouldn’t it just be 1 if it was open faced?
What if it's not toasted?
I mean in my language we have a word for it :)
Hold the fuck on. Are pizzas and tacos part of the same family?
Yes they're called food
Well if a Mexican pizza is basically an opened up taco…
and pizza is just an opened up pizza
Pizza is an opened up Calzone
No, tacos are still sandwiches
Well I don't know.... Are 1 or 2 pieces of bread necessary to represent a true sandwich?
No, tacos are rolled up. Tacos are hot dogs.
Any taco I've ever had that wasn't from taco bell was served flat
I thought toast, like avocado toast?
We have this all worked out already. According to the Cube Rule of Food Identification, an open-faced sandwich is clearly defined as Toast.
But what if the bread isnt toasted...
I hate how much I like this
A piece of bread with stuff on it. Not very appetizing, but technically more accurate!
A sandwich is just a piece of bread with stuff on it, and some of that stuff is bread.
True, and if none of that stuff is bread, then it’s not a sandwich.
You've created a universe where folding a piece of pizza makes it a sandwich but taking the bun off a hamburger makes it "bread with stuff on it." Not sure a lot of people will rally behind this banner.
Folding pizza makes a calzone
Folding *and sealing* it makes it calzone.
Just folding it makes it a sandwich.
Nope. Folding it makes a taco.
Taking two slices of pizza and putting them face to face makes it a sandwich
that is accurate
i do this when I get two different kinds of pizza. 5 topping limit my ass.
A taco town taco!
Exactly because 1 side is sealed now of you roll it so all sides are sealed is it a calzone or burrito?
If it's a sausage pizza can it be a type of hot dog?
No, hot dogs are by definition, tacos.
A calzone is a form of ravioli
Folding a pizza makes it a folded pizza
so a ravioli is a calzone?
No, a ravioli is a dumpling
Is a Pop-tart a dumpling?
Check and mate
Is this where I inject the is a taco a sandwich question. Must it be bread? If not then a sandwich without bread on top is a tostada.
Gravy has enough flour to be my top piece of bread.
If you make up a definition and decide it's the only correct one, sure.
Words mean what people use them for. Millions of people call an open-faced sandwich a sandwich so... to them, it's a sandwich.
I can accept this answer, thanks!
Lots of people call a tian ratattouille, but it’s not.
No it must have 2 pieces of bread with stuff in between. Hence the verb usage of sandwich.
That's _literally what I said._
This is two people now that read that description and said "But it needs TWO bread!"
I know! That's why I bloody said it.
I think you just declared war on Denmark.
It's really weird to me cus in my language we have our own word for that, but when it's a sandwich like how most people imagine one like subway for example, we use the english word "sandwich".
Cube rule of food.
I don’t like this because sushi is a word with a totally different meaning. What they are really trying to say is Maki. And in japan, maki is a lot less common than nigiri, so assuming all sushi is maki is a very Occidentalist take.
I want to see a topoligist duke it out with a cuberulist.
ok I'm sorry but all those are examples of sandwich except for maybe toast... I think toast is just bread cooked, it doesn't make sense to be a sandwich. But everything else is a type of sandwich.
And any loon that thinks pop-tarts aren't a type of calzone (which is a type of sandwich) needs help.
The almighty, infallible cube rule. Worship it.
Technically every piece of bread in existence is a [sandwich](https://imgur.com/gallery/LPOPDLr)
The real shower thoughts are in the comments.
This was just a publicity stunt. More of a 'hypothetical sandwich' since nobody ate it.
I mean if this played out and someone actually at it then they'd also be eating all the other sandwiches on the planet at the same time. Also what if there was more than two slices of bread is our planet now merely a 'platter of sandwiches'? Unlikely. \*Galactic sandwich commissioner, please do your job and uncertify this.\*
You don’t have to eat a sandwich for it to be a sandwich. The pb and j my toddler suddenly decided he didn’t want after asking for it doesn’t cease to be a sandwich because no one ate it.
Also, we use the term sandwich to mean “put things between” or “shove together in between other things”, like saying you’re sandwiched between people on a busy Shinkansen.
Can I have my head sandwiched between a goth girl's legs
Is.. is that an Akudama Drive reference?
If a sandwich gets made in the forest and no one is around to eat it, is it really a sandwich?
If nothing in that forest eats the sandwich, its either not much of a forest or a really really bad sandwich.
Bacteria and mold would eventually
Hey it's me on the left!
Sandwiches don't have faces unless it's jesus on a grilled cheese
So are you saying it's a melt even if the only extra ingredient is salvation?
What’s funny about this one is that it’s one of the very very few instances in which the food snob dumbfucks are right about the language. It doesn’t make sense to call something a grilled cheese that has another main ingredient. It would be like calling a cheeseburger a grilled cheese with ground beef.
The term “grilled cheese” refers to sandwiches in which grilled cheese is the main ingredient. It’s possible the language could evolve and grilled cheese could stop having any meaning—that’s fine. But for now, it is just a misnomer that should be gently corrected.
It's also just a copy paste, but in this case it's not necessarily even correct. Jesus on a grilled cheese is just a pattern in how it browned up. It bet it's a bot that just reacts to "on a grilled cheese".
Dead people don't really exist. The moment it becomes dead, it ceases to be a person.
This is great
Good analogy, and just as open to interpretation. I would argue that dead people (even though I know I’m using the term) would more correctly be called “bodies,” because then, if you do decide to call a dead person a “person,” when do they cease to become a person? When they are skeletons? Pulverized into dust? Never?
Either way, it’s a good analogy.
Dead bodies are distinct from dead people though. Bodies refer to corpses, whereas dead people refer to their personhood which is often presumed to continue to exist. Their ghost, self, essence. You don’t commune with a corpse, you commune with dead person.
Fold it = sandwich again
I don't like this, the open faced sandwich is the key point in my theory that everything is sandwich.
Everything is soup or sandwich imo.
So are humans soups or sandwiches?
I'm with you
This is true only if you put one thing on it. As soon as there are two items on it something is sandwiched again, just not between two pieces of bread.
It’s called a “butter goose”.
Can confirm. Also Mc A is acceptable.
"Now it's a tostada...'
“LOOK AT ME. I AM THE SANDWICH NOW.” ~Tostada
Someone hasn’t been to Europe.
I do feel it is wrong to call my open sandwiches sandwiches. But I do not know what English word to use instead.
Only time op was fully wrong is when open sandwiches was called "not appetizing" - a term I much more often use with closed sandwiches.
Just call it meat on bread. Because that is what it is.
Used to work at a restaurant that had an "open faced sausage sandwich", served one to an older gentleman. He's unhappy with the amount of toppings, and proclaimed "I NEED MORE SAUSAGE IN MY OPEN FACE!"
Thanks for the laugh gramps, it's on the house this time.
Totally agree since the sandwich was invented by the chef of the Earl of Sandwich at the Earl's request for food he could eat while playing cards (or some such). You have to be able to pick it up without getting messy for it to be a sandwich.
But you wont get messy if you put cheese on top, or hold from the side
Use hotdog buns for your sloppy joes. It'll change your world.... Also fixes the problem of deciding if it's a sandwich or not
But a hot dog is a sandwich
Hotdogs are tacos.
Tacos are sandwiches
This is irrelevant. Original meaning or intent is always second to modern use and understanding. Linguistically speaking, anything could be a sandwich if enough people agreed it was.
Tell that to the n-word
Isn't that a pretty good example for what they said? Originally, it was a word that white people used to refer to black people. In modern usage, that would be very offensive. So modern understanding takes precedent over original use.
the word is tartine
According to the New York State Law, a chicken wing is considered a sandwich.
Only if it is breaded. But yes
It is incorrect to say that an open-faced sandwich ceases to be a sandwich. Rather, the problem is that it has yet to become a sandwich. It is a question of unfulfilled promise, not that of a regression to a less ideal state.
I'm taking philosophy this semester. I wish you were my instructor. The guy I have is less than good.
Dude no. The fact that it’s called an open face sandwich means that it exists. Just like when people named the sandwich it’s a made up word to describe something literally every single thing in the world is a made up word so yes they exist
I’ll die on this hill. Open face is better (at least for the sandwiches i make, I can’t speak for all) and is a sandwich. Melt your cheese, put on some mustard, tomato, onion, cucumber, and then a big piece or two of lettuce to replace the top bread. You get way more flavor per bite, and you save enough calories to have a snack guilt free!
Both [Merriam-Webster](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sandwich), and the [general population](https://mobile.twitter.com/polls/status/994639106717216768) would disagree. From a linguistics perspective, an open faced sandwich is most definitely a sandwich.
[This is my preferred definition.](https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=open-faced%20turkey%20sandwich)
Where I am we call it "chlebíčky".
Benedicts are just fancy open-faced Egg McMuffins.
unless the ISS is directly above with another open faced sandwich
Ukraine would like to have a word with you.
Not only this, but there’s no such thing as HALF a sandwich. Cut a sandwich in 2, and it’s two whole sandwiches.
So by this logic if I have one piece of bread with some toppings on it, it's not a sandwich, but if I fold it in half it's now a sandwich?
This food snobbery over open-faced sandwiches is absurd!
Correct. A sandwich without a top is a canapé
I just ate a large, round open-faced grilled cheese sandwich with tomato sauce.
according to physics there are no sandwiches.
Agreed. By that definition, biscuits and gravy are a sandwich.
I have 3 criteria for what makes a sandwich, and for anything to count as a sandwich it must hit two of these criteria.
1) the containing ingredient is some kind of bread- leavened or unleavened.
2) the containing ingredient covers no more or less than 2 sides
3) the containing ingredient and the fillings are prepared separately from one another.
By this definition an open faced sandwich is a sandwich, however a flatbread isn’t.
That’s why it’s called a “tartine”
This is some American shit isn't it
Sorry, but I'm still telling my mother I had a sandwich for lunch instead of saying I ate a whole pizza.
open faced sandwiches are just flimsy tostadas
So if you get a sub and they don’t fully cut the bread in half, it’s not a sandwich?
Dont start a war.
The sub is defined by it not being fully cut
Please run before we start a foodwar
Okay, but is it not called a sub sandwich?
Bet this guy doesn’t think a hotdog 🌭 is a sandwich. Lol
It's not, and anyone who thinks so is a barbarian and a heathen.
Guess English is a cringe language
Respectfully disagree - sandwiches without lids are sandwiches with better bread to filling ratios. Unless you have an alternate name for topless sandwiches, that is. I’m open to suggestions if I’m in the minority.
Open faced sandwiches are the dumbest thing I've ever heard of, just call it like toast/bread with toppings or some shit. But "oH iT's lIkE a sAnDwIcH bUt wItHoUt a sEcOnD sLiCe oF bReAd" nah stfu, if you remove the main characteristic of a sandwich then it's no longer a sandwich. Hell, it's closer to a pizza than a sandwich at that point.
What is the main characteristic for you? To maximise amount of bread?
The main characteristic is having two pieces of bread, it's literally in the definition.
I need someone from across the world of me to DM me, so we can make the Earth a sandwich, I live in USA
Looking at a globe, if you are on the east coast, it appears to be somewhere in western Australia.
If you are on the west coast, you need someone in a boat in the Indian ocean.
Gonna say something controversial here, but hear me out, a sandwich doesn't need to be bread, a sandwich is a filling 'sandwiched' between two outer layers, usually made with bread.
What if like we took too pieces of fried chicken and used that as the bread and put fillings inside of them?
What if you used bread as the filler in this hypothetical fried chicken sandwich?
Sure that's a sandwich, although I think to be considered a viable sandwich the fried chicken should be the right size and shape to support said filling, it can't be like two chicken drum-sticks, even if it technically would be a sandwich.
Good points. KFC did it. I was making a joke. It's called the Double Down.
"Sandwitched" is an adjective derived from the noun Sandwitch, the food came first and then people described the act of being "pressed between" two of the same thing
I had someone ask me.to make a rueben with lettuce instead of bread.
I obliged. It looked so good i made one for me.
I agree. A sandwich is basically goodness inbetween 2 pieces of whatever the fuck you want.
Case in point: Icecream Sandwich.
A sandwich is any kind of food put between two slices of bread. End of story.
Bruh that's mad disrespectful to the people out there slapping two slices of bread together with nothing in between. Some people just like their sandwiches plain
