There’s been an eternal debate on the Internet over whether hot dogs are sandwiches. And a few days back, the “Washington Post” decided to pour gasoline on that debate by adding a new option.
They say a HOT DOG is actually a TACO.
Think about it. When you break it down to the absolute core, a sandwich is two pieces of any starch with any filling in between. So a hot dog shouldn’t really qualify because it’s a filling between just one, folded starch.
But that SHOULD make a hot dog a taco, since it fits that definition better: Filling inside of a folded starch.
And here’s one more “food that’s really another food” to blow your mind for the day: Vanilla soy lattes are really three-bean soup.
Here are a few others, if you want to keep going down this rabbit hole:
- Enchiladas are sushi
- cherry pie is a bread bowl
- a corn dog is a calzone
- a jelly donut is a calzone
- fried rice is a salad
