    Got an interesting response elsewhere so let's see how it goes here:

    One or Two?


    I say there are two smaller sandwiches.

    Using analogies such as cutting pizza, babies, cars and money does not apply here, the topic is sandwiches.

    Originally from here. Away you go.

    So if I have one pound and I snap it in two, do I have two pounds now?

    No it's definitely one. If you only had one slice of bread and folded it, that's not a proper sandwich, thus you need at least 2 slices to make one sandwich. Cutting it into 16ths wouldn't change that fact.

    Yes I did put effort into this.

    It's 6-1 in the office here for one sandwich, and that includes a Frenchman's vote for one, I think that says it all.

    It's 2. They may be small but they are still sandwiches.

    It's one sandwich. When u go to a food stall/place/bar/take-away and ask for a sandwich, they will give u one cut in two halves. they do not give u one slice.

    Thats true. You never get one slice.


    But then again, if you got one slice of bread, buttered one side, added the filling and then folded the slice of bread in half, isnt that a sandwich too?

    When slicing something "in two", you have two halves, not two wholes. Half + half = one.

    What if you used a muffin for your sandwich you'd have to cut it in two before using it anyway so it can only be 1!

    Pret-a-Manger offer perhaps the most ludicrous item - the slim pret. Which is basically one half of the normally two pack sandwiches available.

    http://uk.biz.yahoo.com/050908/241/frkul.html

    The above news report refers to this as a "half sandwich" so yes....the problem above, according to the report, equates to one sandwich.

    But this is not conclusive cos I don't think there are internationally recognized standards as to what exactly makes a sandwich. How many slices of bread? What about those quickies which you can make with one slice and fold it over? What happens when you have one half spread with jam and the other half spread with peanut butter?

    Heres another interesting way to look at it...From some supermarkets, you can get the three pack - but three pack of what? Three halves? It is again not clearly defined.

    Prolly not the best thing for me to discuss about cos I'm fasting at the mo and I am bloody hungry! :mrgreen: - I could murder a 3 pack prawn mayonnaise!

    I think the answer is in how many slices you use to make the sandwich. if you use 2 slices and cut both in half then it is equal to one sandwich (half +half=whole) . now if for some reason you only have one slice and fold it up then it too is considered a sandwich beacuse you only used 1 slice of bread (half a slice+half a slice=whole).

    the question is all mucked up. at no point does it say the guy put the two slices of bread on top of one another, and it says he sticks a filling in between. in between what? theres two slcies lying, he can only stick the filling on top of one slice coz he hasnt put the two slices on top of one another.
