I'm sure it's good, seeing as the deli is famous and all, but I just don't see the need to attach bread and call it a sandwich. Pile of meat, maybe. That being said, I freakin love sandwiches. Do we HAVE to figure out what that thing is before we discuss them?

It doesn't look like it connects to anything, and the "roller" doesn't look cylindrical - more like a shield. Cutting blade? and the little metal thing sticking up in the center moves the material up close when the crank is turned? From the dimensions I'm thinking something to do with index cards or library card catalogs.

Could it potentially be a stamping tool of some sort? like the roller, could it have ink in it and as you roll the card through it imprints something on it?

Sort of. It's called a mimeograph, and this particular one is actually for duplicating postcards, hence the small size. Small postcards around 3x5 inches were a common advertising tool around the 1850s-1920s, and this sort of desktop mimeograph would be used by shop-owners and other suppliers to create basic postcards to send out to customers.

The way that it works is that first, an original postcard would be made by typing onto a piece of waxed paper with a typewriter with sharp-tipped letters, breaking through the paper and effectively creating a stencil.

The large top roller head on the mimeograph would then be inked up, and the stencil would be wrapped around the roller until it was taut and secured by some sort of pins. You can't see very well in the photos Hannah posted, but there's actually another smaller roller below the big one. A clean sheet of postcard paper would be rolled in between these two rollers, and the ink from the top roller would bleed through the stencil onto the clean sheet.

To add on, the ink made the paper smell weird, and some people thought it could get you high. It probably could, if you were in a small, poorly ventilated room mimiographing all the day long. That's why there's a shot in Fast Times At Ridgemont High of students all smelling their quizzes.

Also, has anyone gone to TKB for sandwiches when down here for coach? It's on Golf Center Parkway in Indio (the one off Washington closed). I haven't been in awhile because the Washington one was closer to me, but when I did go, they made killer sandwiches, and the staff was always super chill. This thread made me miss that place.

Godmother = Genoa salami, mortadella, coppacola, ham, prosciutto, provolone, yellow mustard, onions, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, Italian dressing, and a hot pepper salad neatly layered between two slices of fresh Italian bread.

Best sandwich I've ever had.

I've never had fried baloney, though I did eat a lot of cold baloney sandwiches when I was a kid.

Favorite sandwich? French Dip.

And my perception of insobordnat has now shifted to a 90 year old who remembers when such anti-erection contraptions were actually utilized.

Oh dear god....
That is a very apt description of that cup, and the thought of it in action is so incredibly unpleasant.

technically it's an anti-masturbation device.

Oh, the good old days of anti-masturbation devices and merkins. It seems just like yesterday when Marconi was spouting off about "messages through the air". Those were laughable times.

That sounds like too much meat, but looks really good.

It's completely not too much, although I see how it sounds like it is. And that bread, soft yet chewy fresh italian loaves. The bread makes the sandwich.

I don't understand why everyone hypes the godmother when the caprese is so much better.

Different strokes, etc. I'm not a fan of a caprese sandwich, throws the whole simplicity and balance of the dish awry.

Okay. What the hell is this? The left side is a soft but dense foam, and the right side is a single row of very soft bristles. It arrived in a graduate school swag pack full of branded household items including a chip clip magnet, some post-it page flags, and a yellow triangular clicky pen like those ones you used to find on the floor of a U-Haul when you were six. I'm not sure how it fits in with those items, or why the university thinks I should have it. My only notion was lint remover, but it doesn't remove lint at all. What is it? Why is it?

There is nothing like getting a good shoe shine in Vegas and then going over to the Peppermill for lunch.

Could you clean vinyls with it? Or you could use it to brush on sauce for a BBQ brisket for an open faced sandwich...

No it isn't it's a shoe shining device that is clear to see. This lady probably never shines her shoes, do how would she know the difference between a shoe shiner and something that isn't a shoe shiner which she claims to be something other than a shoe shiner

You put the shoe shine on the foam part and then use a rag to rub it in

And then the soft bristles are to brush the dust off

I'm an Oregonian, Vigo. We don't clean our shoes with anything that hasn't been rendered from the fat of a free-range animal.
