Famous Lesser Known Cool Person

I enjoy Mighty God King's blog since he has the same kind of snarky opinions and irreverence that I approve of. Doesn't take himself or his topics too seriously but does attract the right kind of loons to his blog to at least make his more outrageous opinions worth the effort and time to write in the first place. This weekend he wrote about various levels of Nazi Bastards. Of course, making a list of your favorites should be pretty easy to do and interesting to read. However, THIS time he went too far and I had to let him know it in the comments which he totally ignored. He knew he was wrong so that is all I need to know.

"I am usually with you, you magnificent Nazi hating bastard but I will be damned if I will let you say ONE bad word about John Montagu, fourth Earl of Sandwich. The boy put meat between two pieces of bread for the first time and gave it a name? Only the second greatest human achievement since landing on the moon (and you can bet both of them were dying for a blt the second they landed). Next time think before you write. God DAMN!"

Now I know that things get said in the heat of the moment and I can forgive that. I admit I take it a bit personal when someone criticises John Montagu. I cannot overemphasize the man's importance to the lunch or snack time in my life (and yours too bitch). What kind of destroyed wasteland would we live in complete with people wandering around looking for a place to die without the marriage of bread and meat (or your other fillings if you will)? Only the noble 'sammich' (as Lisa calls it) holds up the fragile columns that support true human civilization. So tomorrow or the next day when you are staring at your breakfast blt or your late night baloney with cheese, please give a thank you to John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich for all he did for mankind.

"The modern sandwich is possibly named after Lord Sandwich but not invented by him. It is said that he ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between two pieces of bread. Because Montagu also happened to be the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, others began to order "the same as Sandwich!" [9] However, the exact circumstances of the invention are still the subject of debate. A rumour in a contemporary travel book called Tour to London by Pierre Jean Grosley formed the popular myth that bread and meat sustained Lord Sandwich at the gambling table[10]. The sober alternative is provided by Sandwich's biographer, N. A. M. Rodger, who suggests Sandwich's commitments to the navy, to politics and the arts mean the first sandwich was more likely to have been consumed at his desk.",_4th_Earl_of_Sandwich
