Friday Funnies: National Sandwich Day

On the heels of Halloween...

but well before Superbowl Sunday...

...there is a 24-hour period known as National Sandwich Day. That's right, it's an entire day centered around America's favorite lunchtime staple.

"It is no coincidence that November 3rd is also the birthday of John Montagu," explain the folks at Punchbowl, "[who was] the fourth Earl of Sandwich.

"This 18th century English noble wanted to eat his meal with one hand during a 24-hour gambling event, so he instructed his servants to serve him his lunchmeat between two slices of bread.

To commemorate the birth of the world's first sandwich-maker, November 3rd is now National Sandwich Day."

So grab your bread, and pull out the peanut's time to celebrate!

A panda walks into a restaurant, sits down, and orders a sandwich. He devours the sandwich and pushes away his plate.

Suddenly, the panda pulls out a gun, aims directly at the waiter, and fires.

As the panda stands up and starts to turn toward the door, the manager shouts, "Hey! Where are you going? You just shot my waiter, and you didn't pay for your sandwich!"

The panda yells back at the manager, "Hey man, I'm a PANDA! Look it up in the dictionary!"

The manager goes into his office, opens his dictionary, and sees the following definition for panda:

A tree dwelling marsupial of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves.

What's in an astronaut's favorite sandwich?

What did the police officer have in his sandwich?

A ham sandwich walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve food here.”
