I saw this in the flesh crumb yesterday, at a motorway service station it's a Marks & Spencer Lettuce, Guacamole, Bacon & Tomato sandwich. 20190730_175558.jpg

Which is a bit queer- or is it?

I did expect there'd be lots about this on the internet...and oh yes there is.

I'd never seen or heard of anything about this before, at all. Apparently it's been getting screamed about for months, but I certainly heard nothing until having seen it, ashelfed, and for purchase.

It seems like either an utter crazy bit of cross-branding....or perhaps a calculated critique of modern-world insanities.

My old housemate is homosexual and, funnily enough, he enjoys pretty much the same food as I do.

It's hard to believe, I know, but there may be almost no link between sexuality and diet.
I don't know, I used to live with a gay guy who microwaved freezer pizzas. Nowt queer as folk.

RE the sandwich, it's an example of 'pinkwashing', or as it's now known, 'rainbowwashing' brands.

LGBT is so last year. I remember when it was "Lesbian and Gay", then LGB, then LGBT. Last I can recall, it was LGBTQI+. The term is becoming so inclusive that it will soon be quicker to list those who are excluded.

Therefore, surely a suitable charity sandwich would be Lettuce, Guacamole, Bacon, Tomato, Quorn, Italian herbs, and a mystery bonus ingredient.

I suggest the initials JP, for "Just People". Then we could stop defining each other by our sexuality, get along with each other, and have Jalapeño Pepper with everything.

As a straight, white male I'll just stick to cucumber sandwiches.

The sandwich was said to be invented by the Fourth Earl of Sandwich , First Lord of The Admiralty, who wanted a snack while gambling. He was also a member of The Hellfire Club and started an affair while his wife drifted into insanity.

You have to be careful when appropriating lunchtime snacks for causes.
