Are hot dogs sandwiches? Switch owners decide

Posted on August 18, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Random, Switch

A few weeks back, Nintendo sent out a notice to Switch owners asking them if a hot dog is a sandwich. The results were published yesterday. 54 percent of respondees said that hot dogs are sandwiches. The other 46 percent disagreed.

Super Mario Odyssey director Yoshiaki Koizumi weighed in on the subject during a Reddit AMA a couple of months ago. He personally does not believe that a hot dog counts as a sandwich.

This whole thing is a bit silly, we admit. But it’s a somewhat interesting use of the Switch’s news feature. Nintendo added in options to send feedback with “Great” or “Oh” options following a firmware update, and we’re sort of seeing it be put to use now.

    Thank goodness for this modern age, in which we have things like dictionaries. According to Mirriam Webster:

    Definition of sandwich:
    a : two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between
    b : one slice of bread covered with food

    A hot dog is a split roll having a filling in between. Therefore, it is a sandwich.

    • Reggie

      “One slice of bread covered with food”
      So a slice of toast with a bit of cheese on top is a sandwich? News to me.

      • Mark

        Open-faced cheese sandwich.

    • Carlos

      Wouldn’t that make toast a sandwich? It’s a slice of bread covered with butter, which is a food.

      • Mark

        Open faced… butter… sandwich? Yeah…..

        I feel that the linguists at Mirriam-Webster weren’t considering condiments when they wrote that definition.

  • Tlink7

    Well a sanvich is two pieces of bread with something wedged in between, so yes, hotdogs are sanwiches 😀

    • Gestrid

      But a hotdog bun is one piece of bread.

      • Tlink7

        Fair enough xD I still consider it a sandwich though, because plenty of people make ”normal” sandwiches by just folding a piece of bread that has something on it

      • Eagle367

        But you call chicken burgers chicken sandwiches and that’s one piece of bun

    Heck no

    • According to the dictionary it is
      “two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between”

      • JasonBall

        I don’t consider tomatoes a fruit either even though it scientifically is. I guess it’s literally a sandwich, but in common use and my life no, I don’t consider it part of the group.

        • MagcargoMan

          “I don’t consider tomatoes a fruit either even though it scientifically is.”
          So you choose to be objectively wrong?

          • JasonBall

            Yes. Tomato is a vegetable to me and hot dog is not a sandwich. My truth is defined by the way I live my life, the way my prior experience shapes me as a person, and how I perceive the world, as are all of our truths about everything.

          • Eagle367

            Who cares it’s just a name anyways. I mean a hamburger is just a beef sandwich and a chicken sandwich is just a chicken burger. A hotdog is a sausage burger or a sausage sandwich. besides we define words the dictionary doesn’t. That’s why dictionaries change meaning. I don’t consider myself human even if biologically and physically i am one. I mean I just don’t understand humanity and all the social constructs and the stupidity and everything. It’s like I am on a different plane of thinking compared to most humans

          • JasonBall

            …okay then

  • Διονῦς84

    Are burgers sandwiches? Are wraps and pitas sandwiches?

    • Reggie

      Not sure about wraps or pitas, but burgers yes.

    • Mark

      A wrap and a pita are neither made up of slices of bread, nor are they a split roll. Therefore, not sandwiches. A hamburger bun, however, is a split roll.

      • Pita is a type of bread, which is split in some way and filled with a filling. I’d call a stuffed pita a type of sandwich

        • Eagle367

          yup so is shwarma

    • Dascylus

      If a hot dog isn’t a sandwich, neither is anything made at Subway.

    • Eagle367

      Yup. Even a shwarma is just a sandwich and whatever the arabic version of shwarma whatever you call it is a a sandwich as well

  • awng782

    Seems like Nintendo is attempting to answer the world’s most important issues…

  • Justin McQuillen

    Nazis vs commies next pls nintendo

    • Eagle367

      shut the hell up. And communism is a system of how to run the government while Nazism is about being superior due to the colour of the skin or a few dna sequences. It would be like comparing apples to Starbucks Coffee and even that is more valid since both are still food. So it would be more like comparing apples to space rock

      • Justin McQuillen

        pretty sure communism killed ~114 million in the past century. anyway it was a joke, but jeez, seems like you want to sympathize for collectivism. sorry man but i’m for english liberal enlightenment values of individualism so I’m not feeling either side of your foolish identitarian debate.

        • Matthew Wells

          That was mostly just Stalin and Mao. Who were much closer to fascists then communists in practice. However, they were definitely the commies, so you original comment works.

          • Justin McQuillen

            Stalinism is used to describe the period Stalin was acting leader of the Soviet Union while serving as General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party from 1922 to his death in 1953.

        • Eagle367

          Identitarian debate? The one blaming communism for Mao and others is calling me being identitarian which isn’t even a word. Plus I value both individualism and collectivism and both are essential for humanity so I’m not on either side and don’t call things evil or compare them to supremecists. In your sense capitalism has also killed millions of your count all the people US and others did

          • Justin McQuillen

            I believe you’re referring to imperialism. Capitalism is an economic system, not a form of government. The core motto of capitalism is “live and let live” otherwise referred to as laissez-faire. Capitalism has created prosperity for billions of people and is the reason for the population boom of the past century.

          • Eagle367

            No capitalism is a form of government much like communism. Even in your words, if capitalism is just an economic system then so is communism and capitalism is responsible for such income equality where the top 20% own 80% of the wealth

          • Justin McQuillen

            At least we have personal property rights.

  • Coonfoot

    At least they didn’t ask if pizza is a vegetable.

  • Dascylus

    If you think a hot dog isn’t a sandwich, you’re factually wrong. I don’t even know why anyone is even debating it, there is no debate, it’s a sandwich by definition.

    • Evan Gustavson

      That’s true.
      A sandwich is food inside bread.
      A burger is a sandwich thats meat inside a bun.
      A hot dog is also meat inside a bun.
      Even a Calzon pizza qualifies as a sandwich technically.
      You slice bread, you stick something inside that slice, it’s a sandwich regardless of whether or not said slice cuts all the way through.

  • DeltaPeng

    +1 for the pic

  • MagcargoMan

    We’re taking the memes too far. Soon there will be a Hotdogs vs Sandwiches Splatfest or something. Run for your lives!

    • ronin4life

      Wasn’t there already hotdogs vs burgers in the last game?

      • MagcargoMan

        I think so but I was specifically referring to the “Are hotdogs sandwiches?” meme.

  • ronin4life

    If a hotdog is a “sandwhich”,
    So is a calzone
    And so is a taco
    And so is an ice cream “sandwhich”
    And so is a smore

    • ronin4life

      Take a pizza, fold it in half= sandwhich

      Take 2 cakes, squishem together = sandwhich

      A bread pie/crumble = a sandwhich

    • Eagle367

      Yup sandwich is all encompassing kind of like physics in science

  • Eagle367

    Next do are rotis and naans types of breads.
