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.

angry

Oh, triangles are acceptable. Mmmkay?

AIBU?

Fold toast rather than cut it

Sandwiches should be triangles

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:35:48

Yes, but even accounting for the typos everlong, what does she mean?

everlong Fri 26-Apr-13 19:35:53

Yes agree mardy.

I can believe that of chaos somehow smile

You can't go siccing on a food therad, Mards, that;s unbecoming. shock

Obvis I prefer triangles - less crust - but if you have to give me a rectangular sarnie it has to be bisected through the equator, or I wll hmm your arse.

And, no, I am not expalining, MardyBra, I am too humphy.

And, you, you were PROPERISED then.

What.are.you.on.about?

EmpressOfThe7OceansLovesMN Fri 26-Apr-13 19:37:41

I think Chaos has her uncut sandwich, first cuts north to south and then cuts east to west.
Or something like that?

FBmum Fri 26-Apr-13 19:38:11

Is Chaos drunk?

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:38:24

^^

What everlong said.

Dawndonna Fri 26-Apr-13 19:38:39

Poor Mardy, Chaos won't expaline her! grin

mackerella Fri 26-Apr-13 19:39:33

I assume the top of the loaf is the North Pole and the bottom is the South Pole. doinmummy cuts pole to pole and hazeyjane cuts along the equator.

everlong Fri 26-Apr-13 19:39:35

Diagonally is the correct way.

Tastes much nicer cut this way.

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:39:41

Chaos. In your OP, you said around the equator, which suggests you go around the middle of the sandwich in a circular motion.

Mrsrobertduvall Fri 26-Apr-13 19:40:07

Rectangles are common. (according to my mother)
It has to be triangles grin

hazeyjane Fri 26-Apr-13 19:40:13

I am a bit of an idiot tonight, I sort of forgot that there is a crust all the way round blush.

However I meant the top crust, never cut through the top crust.

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:40:35

I am devastated Dawndonna

SoMuchToBits Fri 26-Apr-13 19:40:57

FGS how hard can it be? Pole to pole obviously means North to South (i.e. top to bottom), round the equator means across the middle (so you get one top sandwich and one bottom sandwich. Crikey, even Norman knows that, and he is a useless plastic tweedle!

Btw, I think equator-wise for sandwiches, and I never cut the crusts off, you lose a lot of the sandwich! shock

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:41:20

Btw Chaos 173 plays 93. Just saying. wink

Dawndonna Fri 26-Apr-13 19:41:24

I can imagine, Mardy what with it being a Friday, too!

hazeyjane Fri 26-Apr-13 19:41:30

Yes, I would think my way (or The Right Way, as it should be called) would be round the equator.

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:42:27

But if the equator is the middle, it doesn't matter which way you cut - it could be vertical or horizontal and it would still cut the sandwich in half.

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:43:06

I think I'm finally getting it following SoMuch's explanation.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 26-Apr-13 19:44:02

But the top crust is rounded, Mardy. So it is different.

SoMuchToBits Fri 26-Apr-13 19:44:35

Yay! grin

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:45:11

Well it depends what bread you're using Doctrine. Sometimes it's square - like the plastic bread DS loves. And the South Pole is never rounded.

MardyBra Fri 26-Apr-13 19:45:52

Fuck knows why I'm arguing about this when it's Friday night and I haven't cracked into the gin yet.
