1. Featured this week on the NPR food blog, The Salt:

    We’re Sandwich Monday, a regular feature from the staff of “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me,” and we’re moving in here to provide an antidote to the informative and insightful posts to which you’re accustomed.

    What we do is eat sandwiches — the most disgusting, fattening, and unique ones out there — and we talk about them. It’s as simple as that. Disclaimer: Sandwich Monday has no nutritional or educational value whatsoever, may cause heartburn, and it’s possible reading it will make your eyes fat.

    Every generation, sandwich convenience takes a leap forward. Our grandparents saw the first drive-thru restaurant; our children will be the first to try McDonald’s McRib IV Bag. For us, it’s the Candwich: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a can.

    See how the Candwich rated.
