Something to Think About
Is a burrito a sandwich? According to a Massachusetts court in 2006, the answer is no. Cambridge chef Chris Schlesinger testified in an affidavit: "I know of no chef or culinary historian who would call a burrito a sandwich. Indeed, the notion would be absurd to any credible chef or culinary historian."
So there you have it. If you would like to read a judge explain in ten pages what I just told you, check out White City Shopping Ctr., LP v. PR Rests., LLC (21 Mass. L. Rep. 565). This question was also the basis of my grade for first year contracts, so yeah, I'm learning a lot.
