    thats a woeful attempt to fit AD&D style character leanings into the world of sandwiches. They've had to make some reaches. Nobody calls a wrap a sandwich. Nobody calls a baguette a sandwich. Rubbish

    So a kebab between 2 slices of bread is a sandwich then. :eek: :)

    It. is. not. a. topping. It. is. a. filling.

    FFS if they can't even get the basics right what hope do they have of getting anything right

    You can have a baguette sandwich, just as long as you separate the two halves

    No, i bought a sub from Gregg's at the weekend and cos it wasn't separated properly, all the filling splurged out the side. Shite.

    When I were an apprentice, a roll were called a fuckin' roll - none of this "baguette" lah-de-dah nonsense, and don't get me going on "subs" - which are also rolls and can never be a sandwich

    Baguette is the best sandwich bread. It actually has integrity and substance, unlike those soggy thin slices that you get in supermarket sarnies.

    Fried chicken, cheese and bacon. Not a sandwich, but looks tasty.

    Couldn't agree more . . . for a roll, it's just not and never will be a sandwich, I'll begrudgingly give you baguette even though it's a roll

    This isn't going to become like your "This is my cafe and you're going to have your breakfast how I say it's going to be" thread, is it?

    Rolls are round.

    Instead of bread, they use 2 fried chicken breasts. You can feel your arteries clog as you eat it. It's sure to double your cholesterol.

    And a sandwich can be made from a roll. Roll is the bread, the sandwich occurs when you slice it in two and put some meat, cheese, whatever in

    its still a roll. A cheese and ham roll. A chicken tikka roll.

    Which are types of sandwich. The shittiest, smallest ones.

    A roll is a sandwich. A hamburger is a sandwich. A croque-monsieur is not a sandwich because it has part of the filling on the outside.

    I just took a curious look at the dictionaries and found a real split there in terms of what a sandwich is. Oxford goes strictly for two slices of bread with food in between. Merriam-Webster, on the other hand, not only includes a split roll too but also a SINGLE slice of bread with food on top of it. Dictionary.com has the rather non-specific "bread or the like" as the outer layer.

    The figurative sense of sandwich is of a thing between two other things.

    "At the Academy Awards last year, I was sandwiched between Sir Ian McKellen and Sigourney Weaver."

    One would never say "At the Academy Awards last year, I was open sandwiched by Sir Ian McKellen."

    One thing is certain, wraps are not sandwiches and are pretty useless even when they're not posing as them.

    Not at the actual ceremony, no, but those after parties get pretty rowdy..

    Doe Subway make proper sandwiches? I can't recall whether they split the bread or not.
    They're horrible whatever they are.

    Wraps are clearly a kind of sandwich, if by 'kind of' you mean 'belong to a general class of things that also includes sandwiches', but not if by 'kind of' you mean 'is one of a sub-class of a larger set of sandwich-ness' (where that set is strictly defined as incorporating the notion of discrete (non-hinged) outer layers of bread).
