Who knew this was National Sandwich Day?

Wooden teeth can be a little rough on the gums.

John Montagu probably had no idea what he was doing back in 1762 when he asked for a slice of meat stuffed between some bread. But as Montagu – also known as the 4th Earl of Sandwich – quickly discovered, there's something quite delicious about the food creation that now bears his name.
We celebrate the sandwich in all its forms today during National Sandwich Day. And for all you sandwich lovers, there are plenty of ways to pick up free or reduced-priced grub.

There is some controversy regarding the original creator of the Sandwich, probably do to the fact John Montague was a British citizen. In many places he is considered the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Who knew?

Role:  Former First Lord of the Admiralty
Died:  April 30, 1792, Chiswick, United Kingdom
Spouse:  Dorothy Montagu, Countess of Sandwich (m. 1741)
Children:  John Montagu, 5th Earl of Sandwich, Basil Montagu

Not funny. National Sandwich Day is a great marketing tool. Sandwiches are free in most areas of the USA today. What could be better after the World Series? Keep the party going.
