Earth Sandwich

by Duncan on June 9, 2006

My brother and I were going to Portugal and we decided to make a quick stop in Spain to complete the Earth Sandwich. We had to deal with a few hard chargers along the way but overall it was a radical adventure. Thanks for the fun Ze.

Awesome Earth Sandwich, guys! And welcome to the League Awesomeness!

I feel a little closer to everyone else now that I have been part of a sandwich with them.

Geoff June 12, 2006 at 11:15 am

Great job guys.

Mik June 12, 2006 at 1:40 pm

Nice work!
I especally love that you did it with a baguette too.

Joe June 12, 2006 at 1:49 pm

I like the little duckies in the pond, and I like you too.


Yellow Duckie June 12, 2006 at 2:06 pm

Hey, a sincere congratulations on your success!
Thanks to you, we’ve all become sandwiched closer together.

Nice one! :D *salutes*

Way to go SportsRacers! If you happen to be in the middle of the Indian Ocean in your travels, let me know and I’ll complete your soggy sandwich in Canada. Have fun traveling and don’t let the hardchargers get you down.

David June 12, 2006 at 2:54 pm

Great job! Not to put a damper on anything, but how do you know that the first piece of bread was still there when you placed the second piece?

uzi June 12, 2006 at 3:33 pm

I can’t see the video, I can only hear it. Is there a video?

Duncan Rawlinson June 12, 2006 at 3:47 pm

Do you have quicktime 7?

jb June 12, 2006 at 4:56 pm video. but did you cut the bread in the half? i didnt see that part. if you put a whole piece of bread on the ground while the one on the other side is cut in half then you didnt really make a sandwich…

Justin Ruckman June 12, 2006 at 5:38 pm

DELICIOUS! I’m allergic to humans though — had to pick that shit off.

Sean June 12, 2006 at 5:42 pm

great work guys – can’t believe you actually did it!!!

umijin June 12, 2006 at 8:46 pm

Excellent! :-)

gypsysister June 13, 2006 at 8:22 am

Megablade and The Crusher: you have given credance to the LOA. Owwoooo!

MW June 13, 2006 at 12:56 pm

You guys are the sportsiest of racers.

Stephanie June 13, 2006 at 7:02 pm

Excellent work, gentlemen.

John June 14, 2006 at 2:36 am

Awesome, great, nice, sincere, way to go, cool, delicious, credence given, sportsiest, excellent, okay…I guess (which adjective is mine!?!)effort gents!

I live in Christchurch, New Zealand and I tried (and failed) to make the Earth Sandwich by e-mailing every hotel, backpackers, restuarant, etc that I could find in Viveiro, Spain (opposite Christchurch)….but didn’t get one response!…even with a link to Ze’s page!

I guess this task required the steely determination of the Brit’s!

MEGABLADE June 14, 2006 at 1:39 pm

Ummm…thanks John…except we are CANADIAN! The brits couldnt handle a task this AWESOME!


Arden June 14, 2006 at 6:41 pm

Interesting, but… do you really put both of your pieces of bread facing the same way? For a true sandwich, the bottom must be face up and the top must be face down, so for an Earth sandwich both pieces must face down. Think about that next time you’re slicing that hunk of salami.

Mad props to the terrestrial delicatessen workers. I’m wondering two things, though. First, how do you know your sandwich wasn’t, you know, skew with one piece rotated maybe 90 degrees across the axis of the other? Second, why not cut the baguette in half, throw one half in the garbage, put the other cut-side down on the ground and there you have it: OPEN-FACED Earth sandwich.

Now all I need is a little Tabasco.

bob June 14, 2006 at 9:51 pm

ok, so we have pretty convincing evidence that you were in Spain – how do we really know that the other piece was really in New Zealand at exactly the same time? All we have is one pic of it, which could have been in your backyard, for all we know.

Dave June 15, 2006 at 12:38 pm

I agree: not a real sandwich! The inside layers of the bread should be touching the contents. Disqualified! Personally, I think it doesn’t count unless both sides are from the same loaf of bread.

Also, there should probably be butter or mayo, ideally some horseradish. A sandwich with only the Earth in it is pretty bland.

curtis June 15, 2006 at 4:11 pm

How absolutely cool! You guys rock!

vloggie June 16, 2006 at 10:03 am

so owesom!

…but …evar heard of deinterlacing

Jiggaman June 16, 2006 at 6:52 pm

What’s a hard charger?

Anyway, Canadians have everything. First Kristin Kreuk, and now the Earth Sandwich.

fez June 20, 2006 at 1:48 am

fez June 20, 2006 at 1:51 am

Joselo Rey July 8, 2006 at 9:58 am

Amazing job guys. I ‘ll never forget your faces.

Liz July 13, 2006 at 5:32 pm

Holy crap…that’s the most bizarrely awesome thing I’ve ever seen. Rock on!

Lorika July 14, 2006 at 7:53 pm

That is the best thing ever! I love the quirkiness and also the little horse interlude in the middle. Great job!

Carlos August 25, 2006 at 1:05 am

Wow. I must say, you folks are fantastic and have made the world a better place. I mean, really…how many people can say they participated in the world’s first earth sandwich? No one except you, your companion and the other guy ;)

League of Awesomeness welcomes you.

Carlos January 30, 2007 at 1:05 am

I love taht sandwich.

Aidan June 25, 2008 at 3:59 am

Their better not have been any mayo in the sandwich… that would mean WAR!

AnnaNoble June 5, 2009 at 12:22 am

I found the best thing to my boyfriend’s birthday… It’s really hard to find cool and still unique.
So today I saw this thing from ZTARLET on facebook where you can name a real star in heaven and have the certificate and a teddy bear sent to you and pay it by a single SMS. So awesome :)

Mike Wrathell November 2, 2009 at 12:38 pm

Great idea. I am glad it has come to fruition, too, even if it is without the raspberry jam… time can someone figure out the polar opposite of my house for me and I can help make the first raspberry jam and Earth sandwich! *s*

Great idea, Ze!
