A sandwich is a popular food item, typically consisting of two slices of bread with something delicious wedged between them. So-called “open-face” sandwiches, with only one slice of bread, also exist, but can hardly be referred to as sandwiches at all.

The sandwich is a poignant metaphor for a particular variety of selfless individual – the kind who works hard, plays by the rules, behaves exactly as he is instructed to by others, and is ultimately consumed, turned into shit, and forgotten. Like those individuals, the sandwich is ubiquitous at every level of society, and popular around the globe.
