Spanish saying[edit]

In Spanish we have a saying "Pan con pan, comida de tontos" (Bread with bread, fools' meal)

Britain's cheapest[edit]

"The sandwich was named ... "Britain's cheapest lunchtime meal"... [however this] has been questioned, as "bread on toast" is approximately two thirds the cost.[citation needed]"

I really love how the editor felt the need to slap a "citation needed" on the end. Bread on toast needs two slices of bread; a toast sandwich needs three. Two divided by three would make...

  • Completely agree; most wikipedia "editors" need to be shot behind the ear to save us from their pedantic in(s)anity... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.152.210.123 (talk) 11:12, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Personally I think it was a bit of homour. Seeing the "citation needed" made me laugh and I'm sad to see it go. 82.45.34.80 (talk) 12:08, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Prank[edit]

surely this is a prank and not a real thing and needs to be deleted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.234.131.220 (talk) (talk) 08:26, 21 November 2015‎

Check the sources for yourself. Grayfell (talk) 08:32, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

I did. looks like they were all pranked and wrote articles around the same time based on the same source, which was a troll. No sources for anything pre 2011. sounds like they are all the victims of a internet hoax **** — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.234.131.220 (talk) 22:58, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

It's in Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, which was written in the 1860s. You can read it yourself on Project Gutenberg and other places. If it's a hoax, it's a very deep one. Grayfell (talk) 00:43, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Note to the hungry diner[edit]

The double toast sandwich consists of four slices of bread stacked on top of each other. The triple toast sandwich consists of five slices of bread stacked on top of each other. If one cannot afford to go to a fancy English restaurant for a toast sandwich, one can simply purchase a loaf of sliced bread and attempt to bite at it vertically.
