The sandwich shop is o-pun
kadyg just graduated from cooking school* and opened up our new business! Unfortunately, some clod (*coughs, looks away*) left the sandwich names off of the menu; all I have are the ingredients and some eclectic pop culture knowledge. Can you help us out?




1. Spam, turkey, and Swiss cheese on French toast, deep fried

2. A hot dog, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing, served open-faced on rye bread

3. Hamburger meat and American cheese on grilled rye bread - and when it arrives, your waiter forces you to march it back to the kitchen

Extra Credit (a toughie; hints in comments):
    4. Bread, coal, lettuce, bread, tomato, blood, and bread, held together with a toothpick and served with bottles of Budweiser and Heineken on the side




NOTE: Comments will contain solutions and/or spoilers! (The checkmark next to the number indicates someone has solved it.)

*Ding!* (Assuming you were referring to #1.) And after your meal, a wafer-thin mint?

*Ding!* Just be careful of Stockholm syndrome -- if you spend the next month working as a chef, we can't make any promises it won't affect your résumé.

I can't help but think "#4 must be a Fight Club sandwich", but then "no, that can't be it".

You're starting from the right base. The solution is a pun of a different flavor, though.

And that itself was a subsidiary pun, I gather?

I was thinking the same last night, then trying to include everything, I came up with a "Miner's Bar Fight Club Sandwich", but I think that's too convoluted, even for Bax.

Definitely too convoluted. The solution, while probably obscure, is at least elegant.

I'm surprised to learn that there are such things as "coal clubs" which is probably where you are going with that one, but I can't figure out where the beer and the blood (!) come into it..

Hints for #4

* Every element of the puzzle relates to the solution. However, you don't need all of them to figure it out.

* The solution is in fact a pun.

* So is one of the clues, and it's not worth much as a clue until you figure out the pun.

* (Big hint hidden in spoiler box:)
The sandwich name is a single word.

#4 is what a vampire were-locomotive eats.

How about a "drunken skunk with diaper rash?" It's black and white and red all over....

1. Pretty sure a deep fried sandwich is a Monte Cristo, but I thought that involved ham, not SPAM.

Okay, I actually just made some progress on this, I think. I managed to get as far as “cold-blooded” + “club” + something with the beer: I'm tempted to think that since it's bottles, there's a 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall somewhere in there, but that sounds wrong.

Beer… bier? Bierce? No. Club, heart, spade, diamond… no. There's a film titled “Coldblooded”, but none of the visible character or actor names match up with anything and I've never seen the actual film. Club + beer = clubber… no! Seal clubber? "cold-blooded clubber" has one Google result about Waluigi. No!

Aaaaaaaaa.

Budweiser and Heineken specifically. What do they have in common? They're both lagers. Lager. Logger? Lagger? Cold-blooded logging, to… make clubs? Someone AxCrazy? No!

Nnnnnzzzzz. @.@
