True, a hot dog is not a sandwich, but a hot dog in a bun is.

 

In the English speaking world a sandwich is defined as follows:

Definition of sandwich

1a. two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between : 

1b. one slice of bread covered with food

 

2. something resembling a sandwich; especially :  composite structural material consisting of layers often of high-strength facings bonded to a low     strength central core

 

So by that definition a hot dog in a bun is a sandwich.

I refuse to make my own sandwich. I rely on sub contractors.

As I don't suppose sliced bread was around during the 4th Earl of Sandwich's time (1718-92), I guess that any two pieces of bread with a filling slapped between them technically constitutes a sandwich or sarnie, so yes, a hot dog is a sandwich, as is a <spit> Macdonalds <spit>.

Is it a Sandwich if you have No Buns and just fold a slice of bread around it?

As that is only one piece of bread, I'd say that it isn't.

What if I break the bread in two and put half on each side?  Does that make it a sandwich?

Sounds like a wish sandwich to me.

 

That's when you have two slices of bread and you wish you had something in between!   :)

McDonalds is a corporation, not a sandwich.

When I was a kid, we called that a "half a' sanwitch".

 

A burrito is an undocumented sandwich.

 

A burrito is an illegal sandwich if it contains burros.

 

(Or burrito could be an affectionate nickname for a little burro)  :D

We made sugar sandwiches back in the late 50's.

 

On a good day - syrup sandwiches!
