I don't like cake. Most cake, anyway. One year, my team at work made me a special "cake" for my birthday lovingly crafted from packages of sandwich meat frosted with Cheez Whiz(R). Those people were fucking awesome.

On snap. And here I thought the sandwich, in its simple beauty and perfectness, could not be improved upon.

How wrong I was.

Except for the hot dog sushi.

I keep alternating between "COOL!" and "bleurgh, excuse me..."

Finally, a sandwich blog I can relate to.

This is great fun, minus the sort-of weird anti-Italian tirades at certain points. (Maybe the guy's Italian-American himself, though. What do I know?)

Oh man, after awhile, everything began to look really, really good. I need to go eat something, NOW.

I don't condone it, but I understand.

Are these stunt sandwiches? Sandwich performance art? Conceptual sandwiches?

Most of these are silly or cute, although there's a few temptingly nice combos. The main bleurgh-factor (for me at least) seemed to come when chocolate was drizzled over Things On Which Chocolate Does Not Go. That and the food-colored eggs.

I guess subway started it with that whole "sandwich artist" thing, it figures that we would get conceptual sandwich artists next. When it comes to food, the artless Thomas Kinkaid thing may be more my cup of tea I think, so to speak.

After a quick look at Fancy Fast Food, those sandwiches are looking quite appealing.

I first read this as "Fun with shit sandwiches."

I don't like cake. Most cake, anyway. One year, my team at work made me a special "cake" for my birthday lovingly crafted from packages of sandwich meat frosted with Cheez Whiz(R). Those people were fucking awesome.

This I read in Andy Rooney's voice. I think I need a nap.

These are not sandwiches, these are silly stunts that happen to use foodstuffs as their mechanism. Sandwiches are delicious things that you can eat. And as the immortal Warren Zevon implored us, we must enjoy every one.

This is what I think it's supposed to be, right?

You've no idea how badly I want to be wrong.

I really really want a Blueberry Hamcake Sandwich. Like, now.

Now I'm REALLY sorry I read this post!

Here I go, raining liberal guilt on the sandwich party, but anyway, I think one day future historians will look back at this moment in the early 21st century after electronic communication has enabled people to share with each other their deepest fantasies and they will consider how many of the most materially privileged, technically literate, and electronically capable of the people shared images of culinary decadence and whimsy while many of their fellows lived in abject poverty.

Bacon on cats, sandwiches in scanners, Julie and Julia, and food blogs on one side; cholera, malnutrition, starvation, and food adulteration on the other.

Oh, look! Sandwiches shaped like dominoes!

Hot Dog Sushi. My kids have been waiting their whole lives for some idea like that.

"Bacon on cats, sandwiches in scanners, Julie and Julia, and food blogs on one side; cholera, malnutrition, starvation, and food adulteration on the other"

If none of the things on the first side existed, none of the things on the second would in any way be assisted.

Meh. I still prefer a good grilled cheese sandwich.

I'm kind of surprised I've never seen the sentence "This is a straight-up bologna and cheese cupcake sandwich" on the internet before today.

And I would so eat a blueberry hamcake right this minute.

It is hard for me to take seriously a sandwich specific blog, which does not even have a "Dagwood" category.

There are more of those that I would eat than there are those that I wouldn't.

This site is right up my daughter's alley. She's been working out the plans to create a pirate ship cake, with Swiss roll cannon and candybar plank and whatnot, as well as coming up with various forms of mock-sushi, alternative presentations of hot dogs, and sandwiches that defy convention. I blame it on the litter box cakes we made when the kids were little.
