Are Hotdogs Sandwiches

I know.

I haven’t posted in like three years and this is what I am starting back up with.

Honestly, this question is a pretty good example of unnecessary hills people are willing to die on.  Like gif vs gif.  Why do people care to the point of anger about these things?  I don’t know.  I’m just going to address the title question today.

So, Alexis, are hotdogs sandwiches?

I actually gave this a fair bit of thought last night as I waited for sleep to claim me.    The answer I came up with is “not really.”  Here’s why;

Names have a purpose.  I can’t roll up into any sandwich shop and order a hotdog.  Snarf’s is the only place around here that serves them.  One Sandwich shop out of four.

Hotdogs are going the way of the burger.  Burgers have become a thing unto themselves and I cannot count them amongst the sandwiches.  I believe hotdogs are going that way if they are not already there.  I mean, if you can own an establishment that thrives off selling variations of a single product, that product deserves to be its own thing.

But that is just my opinion.  I don’t think that it is worth the heat people are putting behind it.  It’s not hurting anyone after all.

Is it?

Happy 2019.  I’ll see you soon.
