300 Sandwiches

I couldn't find a thread for the blog 300sandwiches.com, but it just had a write up in the New York Post, so it was just a matter of time. 

 

Here is the "mission" of the site:

My boyfriend E is obsessed with two things: Star Wars and sandwiches. During a Sunday lunchtime viewing of "Return of the Jedi" he told me: "you are 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!" … And so, I got cooking …

 

I'm really hope this blog is tongue-in-cheek, because I really don't want to believe that a woman like this exists. But even tongue-in-check, the feminist in me doesn't find it all that funny.

At least the 300 feminist sandwiches hashtag came from it: http://www.grubstreet.com/2013/09/300-sandwiches-feminist-sandwiches.html

 

This is almost as sad as TW's marriage powerpoint.

That's excellent. And now I'm kind of hungry. Maybe I need to find a Swedish man to come make me a sandwich.

I can already feel her selling the story as a romcom. drinkI don't want to live on this planet anymore.

Since she compares her boyfriend puke to Alexander Skarsgård, I guess we know who would be the male lead.

Not to snark on his looks (I am really), have you seen her bf? Alexander  Skarsgård he is not.

I did, hence the puke. He is so not Alexander Skarsgard. But she is actually getting some attention (positive even) and people have joked about a movie already.

I bet Tim from "40 Days of Dating" and this guy would be great friends.  They can have each other.

I can't wait to see her follow-up blog: 300 BlowJobs, about a food blogger who wants to have a baby, but whose husband is reluctant.

Gawker's take on it is hilarious: http://gawker.com/b***h-make-me-300-sandwiches-orders-beautiful-woman-1383577562

 

"The story is like something out of a fairytale, one of those weird old German ones you can't read to kids, where an peasant girl's stepmother forces her to make 300 sandwiches for the Devil, and then a series of horrible things happen to the girl, and at the end of the story she freezes to death."

 

Someone on twitter made this:

Guys, it gets so much better. I spent the better part of yesterday clicking through posts during work. I see Gawker already highlight the Sloppy Joe stripper pole class one. It is tragic. It follows a series of "sexy back" sandwich making, where she assembles deli meats while dressed proactively. There's also a post where she "took a break" (1 day) from making him a sandwich, and explains it's because they had a fight. I really wanted to believe it was tongue-in-cheek, but no …

I AM CRYING LAUGHING AT THIS GAWKER ARTICLE omg

Those lines aren’t a prelude to the triumphant part of the story where Stephanie prepares Eric a special sandwich consisting of a box jellyfish on a bed of oleander leaves with hemlock garnish—a sandwich which, Stephanie will later testify, she had no idea would poison Eric so swiftly he would expire where he sat (though her browser history will suggest otherwise). They’re just part of the narrative of Sandwich’s charming life. I mean Stephanie’s.

 

Will Eric reveal that this challenge was devised as a brain teaser, to see if Stephanie could get a job at Google? (A: On day one, prepare a giant PB&J, and then cut it into 300 pieces.)
