    Sure. And it's a type of sandwich.

    And it's not on bread, it's on a bun. Bread comes in slices. A sandwich can be on a roll, but a bun isn't a roll, either.
    "Bread" is a general term. You can prepare bread in multiple ways. A bun is one of them.

    Just because some sandwich obsessive calls it a sandwich, that doesn't mean anything. The article says a hot dog is a sandwich, too. (It's silent on the issue of hot dobs.)

    That's the same article that has these two passages:

    In the United States, the ruling in the case of Panera Bread Co. v. Qdoba Mexican Grill established that a sandwich must legally include at least two slices of bread. An open-faced sandwich does not satisfy this condition.
    Legally in the United States, a sandwich with only one piece of bread(also known as an open-face sandwich) is indeed considered a legal sandwich.

    There is no ambiguity in the dictionary definition.

    You can't declare me the loser because you refuse to take all evidence into account. We need an unbiased judge here.

    If you're using the most general definition of "two pieces of bread plus filling = sandwich" then a hamburger is a sandwich. If you exist in the real world, a hamburger is in a class of its own, separate from the sandwiches.

    I think that if "sandwich" to you means "two pieces of sliced bread with a little deli meat in the middle" then you live a pretty boring life.

    Ironically, whereas I have supplied a few sources for my stances, you have supplied none (other than your strong feelings on the matter).

    That's ignoring facts. Don't be a Palin.

    No, I'm completely unbiased. I'm just right.

    My fellow non-believers of 'burger=sandwich' have presented ample evidence proving our stance. Realize AJ, I am trying to help you by opening your eyes to the truth. As mgpenguin pointed out, you are not living in the real world.

    Evidence meaning...?

    And as I told Walt, anyone who lives by such a dull definition of "sandwich" clearly doesn't have an exciting life.

    (Man, I wish the PS could be this fun.)

    So is it your contention that a hot dog is a sandwich as well?

    You know, I never considered a hot dog a sandwich (see the previous page), but it could be. Especially when the bun breaks in half and becomes two slices of bread.

    But then again, I always think of sandwiches as layered foods, and hot dogs are kinda cylindrical.

    EDIT: But one thing we're all forgetting is that hot dogs and hamburgers can be hot dogs and hamburgers without bread.

    My mom used to cut them in half lengthwise and put a slice of pickle and cheese between the slices... and then put the two slices together and wrap them in bacon before cooking it. That's layers... and its probably the reason why I hate hot dogs.

    In many places, there's a sandwich called a "patty melt." It's a ground beef patty with melted cheese on rye toast.

    It's not just a "hamburger on rye toast," it's a whole separate thing. That's because one is a sandwich and the other isn't.
