    It's very strange. Last week at work I ate a sandwich named Steve. The other day I had a salad named Sally.

    Went to a mall where the food court was now named the "Food Garden." *groan*

    Processed meats, cheeses and condiments apparently.

    I've had hamburgers named Mac, but we all know hamburgers aren't sandwiches.

    always make sure to check for frogs before you toss a salad.

    I generally avoid sushi restaurants that have rolls named after customers: Charlie Roll, Emily Roll, Steven Roll, etc.

    There was a local restaurant that named some sandwiches after local bands from "back in the day". I was thrilled that they named a burger after my old band.

    People that name their food are stupid. I call my food "hamburger," "banana," "apple pie"...

    I had a salad the other day named Annie. It was a poke salad.

    All seriousness aside, restaurants naming sandwiches after celebrities isn't new, I can remember places 50 years ago that did that, and I suspect it goes back farther than that.

    Those belong to your co-workers. Stop stealing their food.

    What do I win for getting the joke?
