It’s kind of sad, but also quite amusing, that a judge needed to rule that a taco isn’t a sandwich.
Panera Bread – they of the tasty baked goods – had a clause in a particular store’s lease that forbade the owner from leasing another space in the plaza to a sandwich shop. Makes sense. Except that when Qdoba – they of the finest damn queso ever – came to town, Panera cried foul. Get this: they actually argued that Qdoba’s tacos, burritos, and presumably their queso were sandwiches.
I know. WTF?
I think my favorite part of the AP story is that the judge in question quoted the dictionary. You know you’ve lost your case when Noah Webster comes to town.
