World's Largest Sandwich Attempt Fails

Iranians have failed in a daring attempt to create the world's largest sandwich. The 1,500 meter-long chicken and ostrich meat sandwich was to encourage consumption of healthier ostrich meat in addition to setting a world record. The attempt was foiled when hungry onlookers prematurely ate the sandwich, before proper measurements could be taken.

It's hard to know exactly what this means for Iran-U.S. relations. In an encouraging sign, political rivals John McCain and Barrack Obama have chosen solidarity. Today they outlined an intricate policy of deterrence from the grill room of Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, home of the world's largest cheeseburger.
