That Must Have Been Some Sandwich







Iowa man accused of offering bribe with sandwich

Iowa City police said a man who was driving drunk tried to bribe a police officer — with a sandwich. Police said a 25-year-old man was charged with drunken driving early Sunday morning after an officer saw him driving with his headlights off and pulled him over.

Police said the man was riding with a police officer in a squad car when he offered the officer free sub sandwiches if he could go home.
The officer declined.


In case you don't believe me, here's a link to the AP article:


So, my question is...what kind of sub was it?


If we're talking baloney sub with American cheese, I would never accept that bribe. But what if we were talking a Potbelly Wreck Sub (Turkey, Roast Beef, Ham and Salami) with those yummy spicy pickled vegetables they put on their sandwiches? I'm not sure I would have been able to resist.


Are there any sandwiches that could sucessfully bribe you?

I love the Wreck sandwiches, too. Those jalapenos are super hot! Maybe the Heavenly Hero from The Great American Hero on Lemmon.

Well, I would be completely unloyal to myself if I didnt say I would offer him JR Wiches....which I happen to keep readily made and warming on my car's radiator for just such an emergency. However, I think a corner bakery Chicken Salad Sandiwch is what I would use to bride the officer.....but lets be realistic here.....if I am in a car with a hot officer, in uniform, cuffs dangling, do you reeeeeally think its food I am going to be offering? MUAH!
