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.
Happy 2019. I’ll see you soon.
