Heat dashes Palestinian quest for longest sandwich

Palestinians abandoned a quest to build the world's longest sandwich on Wednesday after health officials told them their 750-meter construction risked rotting in the West Bank summer sun.

Hundreds of volunteers spread a 750-meter bun on tables along a dusty roadside in the West Bank city of Jenin, long a hotspot of Israeli-Palestinian violence.

But the attempt was called off for health reasons before volunteers got a chance to add 180 kg of mortadella meat, 350 kg of tomatoes and 250 kg of green peppers.

Organizers had planned to serve the sandwich to the poor, and said they were aiming to beat a record set in Portugal in 2004 for a 634-meter sandwich.

"We were planning to add the mortadella and stuffing at the last minute to rule out any possibility of rotting," chef Ahmed Nazzal told Reuters.
"There must be a conspiracy against us by other competitors."

Let's see, it was probably in the mid-80s to low 90s in Jenin today.

What did they think was going to happen?

I love this quote, "There must be a conspiracy against us by other competitors." Geez, the Arabs are NEVER responsible for their own actions are they?

Will HEAT work on 750m long subs? And not the General Dynamics kind of sub.

Probably not, but it's a fun way to cut
it into smaller pieces and grill it at the
same time.

Mmmmm. Now I'm hungry for Quiznos.

Clearly a Zionist plot to prevent Palestine from achieving longest sandwich status.
