Let’s say that you’re on-the-run, hungry, and want to get a sandwich at a drive-thru restaurant. Any one will do; you’re hungry.

You spot a sandwich you like, say a grilled chicken sandwich. It normally comes with lettuce, tomato, and a sauce. But you tell the person at the drive-thru to make it “plain”. Now, when you get that sandwich, what do you expect to have on the sandwich?

When I say “plain”, I expect: chicken. That’s it. No lettuce. No tomato. No sauce. Am I the only one who thinks “plain” is an absolute term, and means what it’s supposed to mean?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
