Activist Judges

Judge Rules a Burrito Is No Sandwich - AOL News

    This time, those damn, dirty Liberals have gone too far wanting to change the definition of sandwich.  It's clear we need a Constitutional Amendment to protect the sanctity of sandwiches.  Burritos can be called wraps, but don't you dare call them sandwiches.  If burritos are allowed to be called sandwiches, what's next? Can I call my dog a sandwich?  Will I be forced to order Sandwich Supremes from Taco Bell?

Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke cited Webster's Dictionary as well as testimony from a chef and a former high-ranking federal agriculture official in ruling that Qdoba's burritos and other offerings are not sandwiches.

The difference, the judge ruled, comes down to two slices of bread versus one tortilla.

  1. I hear pizza's next, something about open faced...


  2. Open-faced sandwiches are an abomination in God's eyes!


  3. That is probably the stupidest thing I have heard, of course a burrito isn't a sandwich. But I wish there were more places in england where I could get a burrito..Vamp

  4. I'm enraged!  It sounds like just the kind of thing those crafty Democrats would do.  Thank goodness for Judge Locke...........

  5. I don't eat burritos. Tacos? Sure. Fajitas? Bring 'em on. I've even been known to sample the occasional quesadilla. But there's something about burritos that just...bothers me.

  6. Oh no!  Don't anyone dare to change the name of the almighty burrito to a SANDWICH!??  Absolutely not!!  I live in California.. the Mexican Capital of the World, and to change the name of that scrumptious 'wrap' which is a meal unto itself, is sheer and utter blasphemy!!


  7. I voted but a lot of good that did considering the results of the ViVi awards. Personally, if I had a dog I'd name him Fugger although Sandwich is also a fun name for a dog. I know, I'm not quite right.

  8. That article was enough to make me not want to eat at Panera ever again. Fools.

  9. Hmmm . . .

    I am now going to refer to Mike's penis as a sandwich.

    He always liked to call it a burrito . . . but now apparently it can just be a sandwich.

  10. I once took a 40-hour training course with Girl Scouts to obtain my official camping training.   We were broken into four groups for our overnight trip.  For one lunch, we were all to bring sandwich items.   One group decided upon peanut butter, which was NOT considered a sandwich by this particular instructor, as he felt everyone must be able to share it all.   Oy.   Too much fighting.   I snuck in my own jar of peanut butter, anyway, and yep, let others use it, too, if desired:)   Sometimes, a sandwich is what we chose to make of it.  -- Robin

  11. Well I think our Judges are bored and if they really want to be considered as Activists by me than they should take on the label Modest Pads. Its a primitive subliminal message from our backwards society that the stick-em-ups have some sexy revealing nature to them. I shouldn't have to feel modest pads are an entitlement for modesty agendas. Hell, I'm celibate. -Raven

  12. I agree.. The burrito is not a sandwich.  I love my veggie burritos!!! :)
