The Earl of Sandwich;
Did he invent the sandwich?
Or’d he just eat them?
It’s All Soul’s Day, Housewife’s Day, Sandwich Day, Chemistry Week, and Peanut Butter Lovers Month. According to Holiday Insights, All Soul’s Day is usually on November 2nd, but is on the 3rd when the 2nd is a Sunday.
The common origin story for the sandwich is that the Earl of Sandwich was an avid gambler and ordered a servant to bring him some roasted meat between two slices of bread. But the Wikipedia article suggests he may have eaten it at his desk because of his involvement with the navy, politics, and the arts.
