Fillings?

[Picture of sandwich sandwich board in Glasgow]A SANDWICH BOARD FOR SANDWICHES SEEN IN GLASGOW RECENTLY HAS CREATED SOME DEBATE AMONG THE LOCALS.

Please take a look at the picture (double click on the image to see an enlarged view). This is what it states:

DAILY BAKED WARM
BAGUETTES
CHIOSE OF FILLINGS

MEXICAN CHICKEN    SANCHEZ
CORONATION CHICKEN
DELI REUBEN     BIG BIRD
MARIE ROSE PRAWNS
OR
MAKE YOUR OWN

I am almost prepared to forgive the dotting of the capital letter “i” and the odd spelling of “choice” with an “s”, because the whole thing is just astounding.

What on earth is “Sanchez” (I shudder to think), and although the corned beef and saurkraut on rye or pumpernickel is a classic American sandwich known as a Deli Reuben, I have never heard of it as a sandwich filling on its own.

I have heard of Prawn Marie Rose (isn’t Marie Rose Sauce the classic prawn cocktail sauce?), maybe that’s the same as Marie Rose Prawns sandwich filling, but it’s a rather odd, in my opinion, to eat a prawn cocktail in a warm baguette.

[Picture of Big Bird from Sesame Street TV]However, I think the scariest baguette filling possibility is “Big Bird”.  I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t eat a whole one!

The strange statement at the bottom suggests that you can make your own sandwich all by yourself. It seems to me that if you could make your own sandwich, then you would have done so — and would therefore not be out looking for something to eat at lunchtime!

Things are getting worse when one cannot understand a simple sandwich menu!
