to state there is a right and wrong way to cut a sandwich?

(140 Posts)

Pole to ploe is incorrect.

Around the equator is the One True Way.

Any deviation from this means you are a Sarnie Deviant.

Oh, triangles are acceptable. Mmmkay?

AIBU?

Dd gets triangles.

Ds gets rectangles.

Dh and I don't eat bread.

Triangles are only acceptable for toast. Sandwiches should be cut straight across tge middle. Mind, the right sandwich should be in a large round white floury bap which doesnt need cutting.

There is also a right and wrong way to hold a sandwich. not the weird way DS does it that drives me batty

Triangles only. They taste so much nicer.

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:25:35

Wtf do you mean by pole to ploe (sic) and around the equator.

Can you please draw a diagram?

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:26:08

I do squares unless I am trying to be posh, then it's triangles.

Triangles are for immature people, they think eating triangle sandwiches make them appear cooler than they actually are.

DameFanny Fri 26-Apr-13 19:26:27

Triangles are Acksherley the one true way. There's science and everything about the increased ratio of filling to bread in each mouthful.

You luddite.

DameFanny Fri 26-Apr-13 19:27:34

Oh, sorry, I see that should be you luddites

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:27:35

I once did a thread on carrot cutting. I am a luddite because I do circles sometimes.

Triangles for sweet fillings.

Rectangles for savoury fillings.

Fingers for the baby.

No triangles, for toast or sandwiches.

Cut across the middle, all the crust on one side.

Never cut through the crust.

Doinmummy Fri 26-Apr-13 19:29:13

They have to be cut length wise so that each half has a bit if top crust and a bit of bottom crust.

LadyBeagleEyes Fri 26-Apr-13 19:29:16

Triangles of course.
It's all about the presentation grin
They just look nicer, and I always cut off the crusts.

BanjoPlayingTiger Fri 26-Apr-13 19:29:38

My ds swears his butties taste better if I cut them into triangles.

I would scoff, but I prefer them that way too.

So, yes. YABU. smile

Just eat bamboo. No need for stupid sandwiches. Or sadwiches as I call them.

I was once accused of having unnatural ways with radishes.

FBmum Fri 26-Apr-13 19:32:06

Aren't you all cutting your children's sandwiches into cutsie shapes like hearts, dolphins and kittens, as dictated by Annabel Karcrash? confused

everlong Fri 26-Apr-13 19:32:20

Pole?

Do you mean diagonally is the right way?

<confuddled>

Tee2072 Fri 26-Apr-13 19:33:00

How do you not cut through the crust hazeyjane? Isn't it on all four sides? confused

And what are the poles of the sandwich?

I cut mine in triangles, numbering 2. Husband's in rectangles. A Small Boy either triangles numbers 4 or squares, also numbering 4, depending on his mood.

OK, if Chaos has buggered off, can anyone else explain this pole to ploe/equator thing?

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:34:14

That analogy would suggest that Chaos is making spherical, globe-shaped sandwiches.

everlong Fri 26-Apr-13 19:34:55

Pole to ploe = chaos on her bloody phone wink
