The most heroic word in all languages is PASTRAMI ON RYE

So on the night of the New Hampshire primary, MSNBC's Chris Hayes accidentally referred to the democratic socialist senator running for President as "Bernie Sandwiches". There was much guffawing, punnery and memeing. And now it's a game, for iOS and Android. The staff from All In w/ Chris Hayes is reportedly entranced. (Note: the Bernie Sanders caricature in the game comes from DonkeyHotey, though it's used without attribution.)

As a guy who uses Quixotic as a handle when it's available, can I just say "DonkeyHotey" is an effing awesome nom de plume.

That Stephen Colbert clip is pure genius.

And a Mr. Rogers reference!

That's President Sandwiches thanks. As if any proud American could refuse to elect a President Sandwiches.

I haven't looked at any of these yet, but "Bernie Sandwich" sounds so much like a gangster alias from "Goodfellas", I'd be surprised if no one goes that way.

That reminds me of that band that had two members: Sue Denim, and Dee Plume.

If Bernie doesn't get the presidency, perhaps he can be made an Earl instead.

(Which brings to mind an appropriate title for Trump, come to think of it.)

Also quite a useful guide for foreigners (like me) who've always been confused by the many different names given to American sandwiches.

It's really just Po' Boy/Submarine/Hoagie/Grinder that are all basically the same sandwich that annoys me.

Bernie Sandwiches pair well with Manny Shevitz.

All this talk of sandwiches really makes me want a burrito.

But wait, is a burrito a sandwich or not?

Or a hotdog, beerperson?

How about canap├ęs? Are they tiny open-faced sandwiches?

I am just a po' boy
Though my hoagie's eaten cold;
I have squandered all my grinders
For a sub-roll full of lunchmeat.
Such are sandwiches.

Fair play on Chris Hayes owning up this. When calling a candidate "sandwiches" is not the most absurd thing heard on the trail, embrace the shit out of it.

The real question is whether breakfast cereal is a sandwich.

I'm holding out for a better candidate... somebody named Reuben.

Once again, the progressive, Bernie Sandwiches-heavy presidential ticket pays off for the hungry voter.

Bernie Sandwiches to Donald Trump: You're toast!

Does anyone else remember when the gaffe -> meme -> mobile app progression used to take months?

Don't let Bernie's folksy populism fool you. He wants to prohibitively tax spoons and forks to "make them pay their fair share." He's nothing but a shill for Big Rueben.
