here’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.
(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 . . . and fried rice is a salad.)
