Rolled starch on the top, bottom, and two opposing sides is, according to the Cube Rule, maki roll sushi. Therefore, an enchilada is sushi.

But applying his Cube Rule, nigiri sushi (pictured) is toast because it has starch on the bottom only.

I'm not convinced these new definitions are more useful than the old ones.

No, no, no. Steak isn't salad. Chocolate is salad!

Does that mean a taco is a sandwich?

Never mind, I started reading TFA. I wish I hadn't.

Okay, so if I get a Kleinbottle and use it to drink vodak in public, there's no way the cops can arrest me for an open container violation, because a Kleinbottle has zero volume and therefore cannot contain anything by definition, right?  Sounds like the perfect thing to do while eating Rolled Chicken Sushi from Taco Bell.

By those rules a hero is a taco. One "piece" of bread sliced with a hinge, some bread scooped out, and filled with stuff.

I'm just going to continue as I always have and not dwell on the time I wasted reading that.

I hope this cube rule author burns his tongue off biting into a lava hot pizza roll.  Which is actually a calzone.  Why not a burrito?  Goddamn it.

A calzone is in a leavened crust and baked, a burrito isn't. The fark is wrong with you people?

Tacos are meant to be made with soft, flat tortillas.

Does this mean tacos are toast until you pick them up? Would that mean that the food states are interchangeable?

Spaghetti and Meatballs is toast if you serve the meatballs on top.

A stuffed turkey is negative space calzone.

And what about strudel? Is that a Hausdorf 3.6 Sandwich?

Didn't get that far, but now that some Farker posted the image from tfa, calling a pepperoni pinwheel "sushi" is even sillier.

So if I eat a soft taco and fold the top over so it's kind of a tube, it's not a taco any more, it's sushi.

*eyeroll*

Beer is soup. Bread soup.

/ It gets you toasted.

It's not a sandwich or a taco, it's a hot dog. How farking hard is that to understand? What's with this trend of everything having to fit into some higher category? Can't something just be its own thing? Hot dogs and hamburgers are not sandwiches, they're hot dogs and hamburgers. No further definition is needed.

Solid State Vittles: This shiat is so farking stupid.


Yeah. But it's gotten that way because of people who can't accept that hot dogs are sandwiches, when there is no logically consistent way to write the definition of a sandwich so that it includes hoagies but excludes hot dogs.

Why does everything need to be defined into some broader category? A hot dog is just a hot dog, no further definition is needed.

Generally speaking, a sandwich is something that tastes good cold. Ham & cheese, PB&J, Tuna, roast beef, these are things that can be eaten and enjoyed cold/room temp. That's not to say they can't be grilled or toasted, but hot dogs, hamburgers, burritos. Hot Pockets, etc., are not very good when eaten cold.

And yes, you can poke holes in that definition too, but that's the point I'm making, there is no one category that will fit everything eaten with bread. People who keep trying are morons.

So, beer is a sandwich!

/mind blown

So if you have yourself one of those burritos were one end is folded over so it's closed when it's rolled, but the other end (aka "the eatin' end") is left open, this effectively makes for a Bread Bowl Salad, served on it's side...

Also, apparently French Onion Soup is upside-down toast.

Yep.

A hot dog is a sandwich.

If you don't like that, that's your problem.

And if you don't care, then it's not your problem.

Because ultimately it doesn't farking matter.  Eat your hot dog sandwich or don't.
