I'm In Love With A Sandwich

It's a rare pleasure for me to be able to give a delectable food-porn item a name.

Reuben.

Slippy and I hit Windy City Subs for lunch today, and I had one thing on my mind. My sweet, succulent Reuben.

Grilled, buttery rye bread. Juicy, pink corned beef. Extra sauerkraut. Thousand Island dressing. All smooshed together into a hot, messy mess, first in my hands and now in my belly.

Oh, sweet Reuben. We must do this more often.

It's a slow day here at "work." It's sort of like Take Nora to Work Day, because I have very little to do in an official capacity, so I'm going to grade some of Slippy's papers for the class she teaches. I love being Slippy's Bitch. It's so fun. She is a kind, benevolent mistress. Ok, off to grade papers like a good TA. (That's teaching assistant. Not Tits and Ass. Or is it?)

I always thought you were a Monte Christo type of gal. I to am a minion of the Reuban, and have tasted the carnal desire which it is.

See? It's omnisexual.

Oh, by the way, the post title is to be sung to the tune of "I'm In Love With A Stripper" as sung by R&B artist, T-Pain.

All Hail Reuben! The greatest sandwich of all time! I too have partaken (partook?)of the mighty Reuben on this day. It is by far the greatest and best sandwich ever! Some say French Dip and I say, "the power of Christ compels you," and douse them with holy water. Others...they may not like sandwiches, to which I say, "Heathen!" Truly we live in a remarkable time...the glorious time of the Reuben!

All hail the Reuben.

Carl's Bar in Hutchinson makes the worlds greatest Reuben.

Especially when a certain sandwich artist makes it.

I think we should institute a SWC Reuben swap. It would be food-porn-a-riffic.

I would be angry if you didn't, Ratherto.
