Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

There are some food debates that will always be contentious. Full English or American Breakfast, pineapple on pizza, should Ketchup be kept in the fridge or the pantry?

Another of the big crowd dividers is how to cut a sandwich – some like their bread sliced diagonally, whilst others cut it straight down the middle.

But one method of cutting sandwiches we had never seen before was shared on Reddit recently, and it genuinely made us feel a little uneasy.

We mean, just take a look for yourself…

Shared on the forum Casual UK, the user offered up an alternative to both of the more popular sandwich options.

“Personally I believe this is the best way. Optional shapes and sizes, plus two extra pieces,” they wrote.

If you have OCD, we can only apologise…

“Has the heat got to you . . What is this craziness,” wrote one person in the comments.

Whilst another penned: “What is this chaotic…monstrosity?”

“Is everything okay at home? Do you want us to call someone?,” joked someone else. “The middle ones only have 1 crust! You need crust on at least 2 sides for structural integrity, no one wants a flappy sandwich.”

Meanwhile, a fourth simply commented: “Found the psychopath!!!”

Believe it or not, there were some who came to the sandwich-cutter’s defence, though.

“Progress in society isn’t made by those who are scared of change,” joked someone in their defence.

Whilst another agreed: “I like it. I get bored easily but with this pattern there is a completely new little sandwich each time.”

“I kind of like it, smash the system,” echoed another.

Now, here at Twisted, we’d proudly class ourselves as certified sandwich connoisseurs (we have a whole competition named Sandwich Goals, after all).

And we firmly believe that the whole fun of sandwiches is how versatile they can be, from choice of bread to filling, to how they’re cut…but we’re sorry to say that we have to draw the line at this.

For one, the filling probably wouldn’t be evenly distributed; the crust would overwhelm some mouthfuls, and don’t even get us started on what happens when you end up with a smaller triangle left at the end… the disappointment would be hard to bare.

You can make a sandwich however you like, of course, but if you do it like this, don’t invite us round for tea any time, soon.
