It’s a little bit surprising that humans took so dang long to invent the sandwich. We’d had bread, meat, and cheese for eons, but it wasn’t until 1762, when the degenerate gambler John Montague, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, decided that he wanted to have a handheld dinner (so that he could gamble with the other hand, as it goes), that the sandwich was invented. Like, I genuinely feel bad for everyone who lived before then.
