BACONPØLSE isn't a sandwich, either It has come to my attention that the internet is debating whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich. It is not. Hot dogs fail the "followed by sandwich test," which is a thing I made up to determine whether or not something's a sandwich. It goes like this. Name a sandwich and see if it makes sense to follow it with the word "sandwich." For example, today I ate a turkey club ... sandwich . That makes sense, thus a turkey club is a sandwich. If I said, "today I ate a hot dog sandwich," you'd wonder what I meant. I'd picture chopped up hot dog bits on bread with mustard, not a hot dog on a bun. As comedian Esau McGraw said on " Why? with Hannibal Buress ," a hot dog isn't a sandwich any more than a wrap is a burrito. Case closed .
