The Daily Ping

This Ping redesign took 7 years and cost $58 million in taxpayer dollars.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I like a good sandwich. That’s why I’m glad that sandwich shops have really grown over the past few years to the point that I have a few favorites where I can get a good, reliable sub – in addition to my own kitchen.

I was somewhat startled, though, to read that the average American eats 193 sandwiches a year. That works out to four a week! Now, I don’t know about you, but I haven’t pulled off a four-sandwich week since I was in high school. The 193 stat doesn’t include things such as hamburgers, which are really their own things.

I do know that lately I’ve been enjoying sandwiches more. They’re easy for me to assemble in the early, groggy mornings and there’s total control over how many meats and veggies I have (unlike the folks at the chains that weigh food.)

Do you still eat a lot of sandwiches? Four a week?

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!
