Is a hot dog a sandwich?
Ok, so my friends and I are having an argument here and we need to settle it. I thought this was obvious but apparently not. For centuries the hot dog and the sandwich have been considered different anomalies, as I understood. But, apparently some people out there group them into the same category.
By definition, they are the same. Meat in bread with toppings at your discretion. So, why do we classify them differently?
I never asked myself that but it raises a good question. In fact, this argument escalated well past hot dog. We went into burgers, tacos, you name it; how do we categorize food? It damn near caused an existential crisis. So before you answer, really ask yourself what a sandwich is and how it differs from a hot dog/etc. Really. Think.
