It seems National Geographic has finally figured us out. Keep your historic monuments and distant cultures for yourself — we want sandwiches! Delicious sandwiches from all around the world.
So thanks, guys, for putting together a list of global sammies. Previously we had no reason to go to Portugal, but now that we know they have a sandwich that is “drenched” in “beer sauce,” well, why on Earth would we go anyplace else (aside from the 14 other sandwich-makin’ places they’ve listed). Seriously. You thought that sad excuse for a sub you get from the corner deli is a sandwich? Where’s the caviar? The smoked fish? The sandwich that is actually just French fries between bread?!?!?!
It seems we have a lot to learn and a lot of traveling to do. Maybe someday we can write a memoir about it. We’ll call it “Eat (Sandwiches), Pray (for Sandwiches), Love (Sandwiches),” and James Franco will be in the real-life version, not the movie one. Thanks for giving us something to look forward to, National Geographic.
