By 11.07.16

Can you imagine a world without sandwiches? There’s no way. Society would crumble. Sticking meat and cheese between two slices of bread is easily a Top 5 greatest invention of all time, right up there with the wheel, matches, running water, and Pornhub.

Today I learned that the origins of sammiches comes from an all-night gambling binge by the Earl of Sandwich, a legendary 17th-century degenerate. He didn’t want to leave the table, so he asked his kitchen staff to throw some meat between bread so he could eat it with one hand.

We’re all indebted to this man’s vices for changing the snack/eating game forever.
