I have seen the norm on the internet, people ask is lava wet, and is water wet, and other wierd questions, but this is ridiculous, not because it is the most out of the box question or anything, people ask if flatbread is pizza and if pizza is flatbread, so it is not the most shocking that one would ask "Is a hotdog a sandwich?", but because . . . well matpat, do you ever think that you made a nearly 20 minute long video defining sandwich in order to confirm whether or not a hotdog is a sandwich, and you caused me to yell "NOOO!!!!NOOOOO!!!", as you questioned, is a taco a sandwich, is a quesadilla a sandwich?, what about open-faced sandwiches?, as you take definitions with skepticism and look at multiple sources acting like knowing what a sandwich is, is a form of rocket science, can't we just stay with something as vague, it is two slices of bread with some food than bread in between. No?, is that not ok, cuz if not I'm not sure what to say to you, other than trying to guilt trip you by saying, "Are you proud that you managed to tick me off by questioning if a taco is a sandwich?, Are proud that you earned the disapproval of a fellow sentient life form using the internet?".

So if you take a piece of bread with peanut spread on it, and fold it in half to resemble a sandwich, is it not a sandwich because the bread is still connected and therefore one piece?

Without watching vid, based on thumbnail, pizza is indeed a sandwich, but it also isn't. It should be obvious, but it entirely depends on your definition of "sandwich" the same reason why "water is wet/dry" all depends on what definition of wet is being used. The common definition of sandwich is roughly "two pieces of bread, filled with a variety of different ingredient" In this case, No pizza is not a sandwich, as there is only one piece of bread, and even if you eat the pizza New York style (fold it in half) it is still one piece of bread, thus does not fit the definition, despite now being "filled" with ingredients. By his definition, a sub is not a sandwich, as again, the bread is one continuous piece. If you chance the definition, to something like "food placed in between bread", then you have removed the required second piece of bread, and thus subs, pizza, hotdogs, and everything else placed inside of any type of bread is a sandwich. Place dog food inside a hoagie roll? Congratulation you made a dog food sandwich according to this definition. If you make it more specific such as " a sandwich is cold cuts, cheese, and produce, placed in between two pieces of sliced squares of bread" then pizza, subs, hotdogs, hamburgers, etc can no longer be considered a sandwich.

So others have mentioned subs. Some are two slices, with the bread cut in two. At times a hotdog buns is in two pieces as well. Meatball sandwich, the name says it right there, but the meatballs are not thin either. So is a meatball sandwich not a sandwich? So ya, the definition is not accurate either.

My friend argued with me that his Subway sandwich was a sandwich. I told him that since they never sliced the bread all the way (keeping the bread as a single piece...just like hot dog buns), then it was not really a sandwich. I think what upset him more was the fact that -- while fixing my hot dog, I was squishing the bun around the dog to get the sauce all over the dog. The bun ripped at the seam. I told my friend that my hot dog was now a sandwich.

To sandwich something is to insert or squeeze (someone or something) between two other people or things. A culinary sandwich is object-filling-object with both container and filling being edible, designed to be eaten by hand. An open topped sandwich is not a sandwich, but is related to a sandwich in the same way a camel is related to a horse. Due to world culture, you will know what a horse is, and a camel is like a horse, but... An open topped sandwich is like a sandwich but... If you sandwich cheese and bacon between 2 peices of chicken, that is a sandwich, a non tradional sandwich, but a sandwich. 2 pancakes with butter between them picked up and eaten by hand could be considered a non traditional sandwich. While you could put a sandwich in a wrap, or vice versa, a wrap is not a sandwich. It is however in the sandwich family. If the burger or hotdog bun is in 2 distinct pieces, they are sandwiches. If they are one piece, it is a wrap.

These appeal to authority doesn't vibe with my anarchist vibes. I want an appeal to the general consensus. So... uh... let's look at the word sandwich and its use as a word in the English language. Languages are decided by how we all agree to interpret words, so this is less about authority and more about general agreement. If something is sandwiched between something else, it means there are two objects pushing something together. So an open faced "sandwich" isn't a sandwich. Tacos aren't sandwiches and wraps aren't sandwiches because it's one tortilla wrapped around/cradling filling, not sandwiching the filling. I'd make the argument then that a hotdog could be considered a sandwich if you open your bun too far and it tears into two halfs. Because now your meat is sandwiched between the two halves of the bun. Subs are sandwiches too because you need to cut the loaf in half to sandwich the filling as well. So if something is cut in half in order to put something in, we can assume the stuff in it is a sandwich. A bagel cut in half to put in filling is also a sandwich.

Is cereal a soup? Depends on if soup is defined as being cooked, or meant to be warm. As well as if a certain kind of preparation makes it soup.

Why not base the definition of sandwich on the Earl of Sandwich who invented it. The first sandwich was roast beef between two slices of bread. Also, bear in mind that a wiener could be a sandwich filling, like a sausage sandwich. But certainly a requirement is that it is two slices of bread, not a wrap or bagel or dough or bun. Specifically bread.
