    Are you flamin’ kidding me. National Ham Sandwich Day? A complete waste of time and it’so ne of the main reasons I voted to leave. Or stay. I can’t really remember now it was weeks ago…

    Anyway, I like cheese.

    I love ham. But I have a severe gluten intolerance so I don’t eat bread or bread-like products. Once again an article is wasted on me Intertwit. Tell me, what exactly is your point??

    Onions. I like onions. I put them in everything. Even my tea. I will be joining in the celebratory nature of the 1st National Ham Sandwich Day but I will be including onions.

    Ham Sandwich day? what is the world coming to. I bet it won’t be 2 bits of doughy white bread with a thin slice of value processed mean in the middle. It’s a sign of the Hipster culture sweeping across our land like a unwanted rash. I bet it has to be some sort of flashy “taste the difference” ham, or honey glazed ham from hand reared pedigree British saddleback hogs on some kind of Artisan Foccacia. I for one won’t be engaging in this and will be sticking to my corned beef or spam sandwiches with a pickled egg.

      Boychap, thanks for you comment. Just so you know, the National Ham Sandwich Board is an all inclusive organisation so if you want to eat wafer thin processed ham from any of the well known discount supermarkets between two slices of StayFresh medium white then you just go ahead and do it!

      Have some for your tea right now or perhaps as a light snack before you retire for the evening. You’ve still got 5 hours plus of the inaugural National Ham Sandwich Day 2016 left so put your pickled egg down this instant and join in the fun right now!
