Subway bows to cheese tessellation pressure!

Looks like the infamous Left-Handed Toons comic about cheese placement on Subway sandwiches has finally paid off.  No longer will you have to suffer soul-crushing disappointment at the hands of so-called “sandwich artists”!  Well, at least in Australia.

I saw a tweet from Digg that captured my attention this morning, which lead to a link that I couldn’t follow… so I had to Google “Subway Finally Agrees to Tessellate Cheese” and it paid off.

This came from Gawker:

This came from The Consumerist:

The Consumerist | Subway to Start Tessellating Cheese

This is the word from Left Handed Toons:

Hopefully this wave of geometrical correctness makes its way to the shores of the states soon, and maybe they’ll figure out a way to not use one knife for every sandwich and even a way to stop flinging little creamy bits of death all over the place!  I may have to start bugging my old contacts there once again.

  1. There are sandwich building training materials??? I never saw any sandwich building training materials during the 2 months I worked at a subway!

    Of course, that also might have been the franchise owner’s fault. He also bounced my paycheck… he was not the most on-the-ball kind of employer.


    • Hmm… Not a shock. I guess the standards really are all up to the owner/operator/managers or whoever does that sort of thing. You’d think a corporate representative would be in to check on things periodically.

      I never worked in a Subway, but I did hang out in the back of one with friends when I wasn’t supposed to be there. They had little posters… and a big one in the back that showed how to make every sandwich.

      The one-knife-for-all-sandwiches thing is just nasty to me… even if they do wipe it over & over with the same dirty cloth…


    • Not until July 1st in Australia or New Zeland!

      If one where to tessellate the cheese before that date, I shudder to think what would happen.

      Perhaps a social experiment where you go in and ask the sandwich artist to tessellate your cheese by special request is in order.
