    One thought on “There Exists an X, X is a Sandwich”

    1. Like most people, I haven't thought much about a sandwich past what I wanted on it, but like a hardy piece of meat, this book added another layer to it. Now it makes me wonder what places have been ripping me off with their faux-sandwiches. You know who you are. This book is packed with all sorts of logical proofs, interesting asides and philosophical inquiries, just like great sandwich. And don't forget the fantastic illustrations, which add that extra touch, like the perfect condiment.

    2. Perfect exploration of what it means to be a sandwich. It covers the sandwich origin story, absurdities created by certain sandwich criteria, and is extremely logical in its definition of what it means to be a sandwich. Great little contemplation on the humble sandwich.
