2. Revenge of the Sandwich?
3. Sandwich = H1N1 ??? (Editor's Note: these disparaging and libelous statements against the Sandwich MUST end)

5. Is the introduction of a french fry featured sandwich (which I must as a responsible Sandwich advocate, differentiate from sandwiches merely containing fries) a carb-tastic development or a glum glop of gluten?
6. To close: The Superbowl (aka the single day of the year where comically oversized sandwiches are not just permitted but encouraged) has resulted in my personal quest for a subway style party size sub. Here are selected excerpts from two emails chains I have had with various sandwich makers to procure such a sandwich
I am wondering if you guys are able to do a custom sandwich akin to the subway party sub (e.g. 3-4 foot party sub) for a superbowl party.

We do a sandwich loaf which is about 2 feet long. What we do is stack the meat and cheese, etc., on the dough and wrap it up. Something for the Super Bowl I would suggest our Pizza loaf (Genoa Salami, Mozzarella Cheese, Onions, Tomatoes, Olives, Green Peppers) and our Philly Cheese Steak loaf (Roast Beef, Carmelized Onions, Cheddar Cheese and Green Peppers). The nice thing about this, is you pick it up from us already prepared in advance and before you eat it just put it in the oven for a few minutes to warm it up. It won't affect the sandwich at all except get the sandwich hot and melt the cheese.
Hope this helps.
To be Clear, THIS is what I consider to be the benchmark (source: Pieson Pizzeria in Catasauqua,PA)
