Are hot dogs sandwiches? Switch owners decide
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.

First off, it’s a pleasure to have you here Rabbid Peach! How are you adjusting to your new life here?
“Well, it’s certainly…different. There’s a lot of butt to kick, and you KNOW I do it well. I might not have a nose, but I can smell my enemies’ fear! There’s definitely not enough class for a girl like me though, have you SEEN the clothes these bad guys are wearing? Yuck.”
Understandable! You mentioned kicking butt there, care to elaborate?
“Oh gosh, it’s easy really, darling. I mean the rest of my beloved team might struggle sometimes, but I’ll gladly put them all on my back. These bad guys mean nothing to me, if anything they’re just good exercise!”
