This year, the Internet and social media lit up when Oscar Mayer made the bold declaration that a hot dog is indeed a sandwich and challenged people to convince them otherwise. And the brand wasn’t alone in its proclamation, either. Last month, the food company Jimmy Dean went as far as launching a petition asking famous dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster to change the definition of the word ‘sandwich’ by getting rid of the part that says “slices of bread”.
As the debate over whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich continues, one of the latest people to give their two cents is none other than Draco Malfoy himself, actor Tom Felton. For those unaware, Draco Malfoy is one of the characters in the massively popular Harry Potter series, serving as a major nemesis to the main character.
So what does the former wizard have to say about hot dogs? Felton agrees that a hot dog is “absolutely not” a sandwich, reasoning that if the food is referred to as a sandwich only then it is indeed a sandwich. You can check out the full interview over at The Takeout.
