There's been an eternal debate on the Internet over whether hot dogs are sandwiches.  And a few days back, the "Washington Post" decided to pour gasoline on that debate by adding a new option...

They say... a HOT DOG is actually a TACO.

Think about it.  When you break it down to the absolute core, a sandwich is two pieces of any starch with any filling in between.  So a hot dog shouldn't really qualify because it's a filling between just one, folded starch. 

But that SHOULD make a hot dog a taco, since it fits that definition better:  Filling inside of a folded starch.

And here's one more "food that's really another food" to blow your mind for the day: Vanilla soy lattes are really three-bean soup...  WHAT?

If you want to keep going down this rabbit are a few others:    Enchiladas are sushi . . . cherry pie is a bread bowl . . . a corn dog is a calzone . . . a jelly donut is a calzone . . . and fried rice is a salad.
