"I order the club sandwich all the time, but I'm not even a member, man. I don't know how I get away with it. How'd it start anyway? I like my sandwiches with three pieces of bread. So do I! Well let's form a club then. Alright, but we need more stipulations. Yes we do; instead of cutting the sandwich once, let's cut it again. Yes, four triangles, and we will position them into a circle. In the middle we will dump chips. Or potato salad. Okay. I got a question for ya, how do you feel about frilly toothpicks? I'm for 'em! Well this club is formed; spread the word on menus nationwide." - Mitch Hedberg

Nope, it is cheap because people are still willing and able to cook at home. But if you want to send us free Club Sandwiches I can give you my address.

Africa is not a country.

Or, perhaps in your world, the people of California and Saskatchewan are grateful for the Hurricane Katrina relief funds.

Come for the Apartheid, stay for the club sandwiches!

abhorrent1: They have hipsters in Geneva? And they're as dumb as they are here?


Yes, hipsters love club sandwiches!   Every time I think Fark has redefined the term Hipster to a newly overly broad level of idiocy, I am corrected for my assumptions.
 
2014-05-13 08:37:11 AM  
I farking love club sandwiches. You want to know how good a place is? Order a Club first. If it's just right, the rest of the food is probably good. If it sucks, they suck; because if you screw up a sandwich, you're simply stupid.

OMG, New York didn't even crack the top ten.  We need to do something about this Sammich gap, and do it NOW PEOPLE.  For the SAKE OF THE CHILDREN.  Won't someone please think about the children?  If we don't act, we will continue to fall behind in the Sammich index and before you know it, we're going to bed by the LIGHT OF A COMMUNIST MOON!

Club sandwich and kettle chips: who needs that skin on the roof your mouth?

I think a better barometer in US is price of grilled cheese sandwich. Not talking about gourmet, just 'merican cheese on toasted white.
Pioneer Bar NYC, $10 for grilled cheese. Take that Geneva.

/swiss on rye, lightly buttered and toasted

It has honey and almond nougat!

You still remember apartheid? That is like a quarter century ago. There days we are more like these Chinese McDonalds, side by side in the same box, culturally confused and not really amounting to much.

Not really, I was too young - but I remember when they discuss it in leathal weapon 2.

All I will remember of South Africa was my trip to JoBurg where one of the tourist guidebooks (or maybe wikitravel) actually had, under the 'safety section' - "If driving, never come to a stop at a red light" - its apparently safer to just blow through that shiat than to come to a stop and risk being jacked..

How could this be possible.  Even India is charging more for a sandwich than in America, and that was the cheap end of the scale...  WTF?

This is making me want to avoid all of Europe entirely, and I dont want that, because I want to visit.  But these prices can't be real!

They are prices at expensive hotels in tourist areas, which are always a ripoff.   I've been to Paris and London many times and had meals for under 17 bucks at many places.

17 is a bit pricey still...  But I am cheap...  $10 is a good price for a meal at a sit down place.  I understand it gets more expensive as it gets fancier, which is why I stay out of those places.   Buffets are just fine with me too...

You can get by eating cheaply in Europe (although the euro-dollar exchange rate sucks).   Even if you can't find cheap places, you can always get away with going to a market and getting cheese and bread and whatever and make yourself a sandwhich - thats how I survived when I was doing my first Euro trip and didn't have the money to spend on stuff.

I always head to the hotels to stock up on potato chips and chocolate bars.  At ten bucks apiece they must be far superior to the seemingly-identical items selling for a buck or so at the 7-11 convenience store across the street.

WTF, a club sandwich is turkey, ham & bacon, along with cheese, lettuce & tomato.

That's not how scale of economics work.

Its cheap for the same reason its cheap in India.

But maybe you can eat it in RSA without getting sick. I wouldn't trust anything from India that had been washed in tab water, and not boiled afterwards.

Here's a hint: don't order a sandwich from the horribly overpriced hotel restaurant.

I know what it costs to get a sandwich in NYC, and it isn't >10pounds unless you don't understand the concept of "a deli".
