American People Lead World In Compressing Big Sandwiches So They’re Bitable (video)

And more awesome stuff other people did on the Internet today.

Thank you, The Onion, for bringing us this entirely believable news report. According to a study, Americans lead the world in their ability to take very large sandwiches into their hands and crush them until they are small enough to fit inside the human mouth.

Lead Pew Research Center researcher Hugh Newell says “while most Americans can apply an impressive 400 pounds of pressure per square inch to a hero or roll, their skill in simultaneously maintaining the sandwich’s structural integrity is what ultimately sets them apart.” We’ve crushed a hoagie or two in our day.
