For centuries, humanity has been plagued with age-old questions and debates. What is love? Why is the sky blue? Is a hot dog a sandwich? Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel weighed in on the great hot dog debate.
Last Friday, the editors of Merriam-Webster dictionary declared that a hot dog is, in fact a sandwich. By definition, they say, a sandwich is two or more slices of bread or a split roll with filling in the middle. Kimmel is firmly on the other side. He says a hot dog is its own thing. “If you went in a restaurant and ordered a meat tube sandwich, would that make sense? No. They’d probably call the cops on you.” True. He also points out that if a hot dog is a sandwich, then cereal is soup. Also true.
In case you haven’t heard, Kimmel is running for vice president. And when he is vice president, he says, a hot dog will be a hot dog, a hamburger will be a hamburger, and a sandwich will be a sandwich. This will be law.
Watch the video, and please weigh in in the comments. This is important.
