Fun fact

A sandwich—a food item consisting of two pieces of bread with one or more fillings (eg, meat, cheese, peanut butter, etc) in between them—is a very common lunch food in North America. The word sandwich can be traced back to John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, an English aristocrat from the 18th century. Montagu would request that his meat be put between two pieces of bread, so he could eat one-handed while playing cards.
