Literally all sandwich shops anywhere I've gone in the last several decades offer rolls as their main bread type, often times outnumbering sliced bread, if it is even offered. These rolls aren't ever cut all the way through to keep the sandwich from falling apart. So ToGos, Subway, Jersey Mikes, Blimpies, et cetera don't actually server many, if any sandwiches. And if you are going to call those dishes sandwiches (common scenes would say you would) then a hot dog would have to be as well, as it is exactly the same preparation. This seems like a pretty epic fail in this video by not addressing it as fact or refuting against it somehow.

Oh wow it's almost like we should have different names for different things... oh wait we do. A human is a human, and humans live. Dogs are dogs, and dogs live, so dogs are humans because both are living creatures that live just like how anything in or on bread makes in a sandwich, apparently. This stuff is as stupid as this comment, honestly.

I mean... even by colbert's definition a hotdog is not a sandwich, a sandwich is between two pieces of bread by the loosest sense. As such a hotdog is a sub by all accounts, which is a piece of bread that's cut partway through and stuffed with things. A quesadilla isn't between two pieces of bread, so not a sandwich, it's between two other TYPES of a grain, but they aren't bread. An open faced sandwich is not a sandwich. If I start calling a donut a hamburger, and it catches on, it's still not a hamburger. However, if you put a person's head between two pieces of bread you can make a perfectly good idiot sandwich as Ramsay proved.

If matpat wants to continue to dance around definitions and ignore the "two separate slices" part which would mean by that definition a hotdog is not a sandwich, then I recommend anyone who actually cares about this question should look into the cube rule of breading, depending on which sides of the cube is occupied by breading means that food is classified as a pizza, a sandwich, a taco, a suchi, and even a calzone. Because a hotdog is surrounded on 3 sides (the sides and the bottom) in this specific shape means it's a taco. Matpat, you need to stop taking the flat earther method of making up evidence to prove your preconceived notion that a hotdog is a sandwich

6:51 is there much point using a USDA opinion? It mentions biscuit, which to the English would be a savoury scone, whereas a biscuit here is what you call a cookie. I certainly wouldn't call meat inside a scone a sandwich. Of course you go ahead and explain why that definition was wrong anyway, but I wanted to say this anyway. 15:29 pretty circumstantial here. Is a hot dog where the bun split but they still used it suddenly a sandwich but not if it's just a bun cut not all the way? I've had many hot dogs where it's two slices, not having it buttered is personal preference, I certainly like it, calling a hot dog not thin is just plain dumb, how is it not a thin piece of meat? Or is a steak sandwich suddenly not a sandwich too? Sauce can be spread between the buns too, again, preference. Seems you're using a warped American view of the hot dog here to justify it not being a sandwich. Hot dogs aren't even American.

What about bread that is baguette shaped cut in half, it is not 2 slices if there is a little part still uncut, but can define as a sandwich, also even does the topping sit on the side of the wiener of a hot dog, if looked at horizontally with the wiener pointing right, it is now not havig layers, but one layer with more toppings on the side, BUT THAT A THEORY A FOOD THEORY, THANKS FOR READING

Well the man was asking a judge to make a judgment, she needs a definition. She is not there to define a sandwich, she was put there to judge. She was given the definition, she passed her judgement. If you are not satisfied with the outcome I'd say it's more the fault of the definition than that of the judgement.

Also let’s not forget about the sausage sandwich the tradition the inventor of the ‘Red hot dachshund’ when he made it. Also that’s why the sandwich is also called a ‘Redhot’ or ‘hot dog’ none of this is covered in the show. Nor the fact that there are other sausage sandwiches where the sausage like the iconic one from Chicago. Not gonna lie kinda disappointed in this one. Just feel like it was less research and more just fishing around to try to prove a bias.

The question is non-related to the topic in the video but what if they took all four series put them together into one channel and then just have different playlist so everyone can come together and get one channel therefore to make more profit and we can meet together. And don’t even get me started with the Harry Potter idea I just had

I agree with hot dogs not beeing sandwiches. And yes the two pieces of bread are always thin in what we call sandwiches. Nice vid matpat.
