Throw away your toothpicks (that is, if you only use them for keeping your sandwiches together--if you use them for picking your teeth, DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY). Hinged bread to the rescue!

       Hey, guys, give him a break. He means regular white, wheat, or rye, sandwich-sized, sliced bread. With a hinge. For kids under 10, you should be able to get a latch for the side opposite the hinge so that the danged sandwich *cannot* flop open and spill tuna salad on the floor.

       A hinge on one side is simply not good enough. You'd need some sort of clasp on the other side to stop it falling open. Introducing Velcro bread.....

       Why not buy an unsliced loaf and slice it with ready made hinges? You can pride yourself in your new found art of cutting bread strangely.

       Of course, you could just fold a slice in half...

       There was a sandwich bread marketed in the US Midwest in the early 60's called Yogi Bread (for some strange reason, I'm sure). Essentially, it was sliced double-wide white bread with two crowns. Being something of a bumpkin, I didn't recognize the obvious and would, yes, cut it in half when making a sandwich from a single slice.   

       Perhaps it might have become popular had smarter folks bought it.

       So, Military, you're saying they test marketed Yogi Bread in the wrong part of the country...?   

       Yes, it takes a sophisticated cosmopolitan to see double-wide bread with two crowns and come up with the fold-over idea. Who was the marketing genius...?

       I dunno. Maybe the wrong *country*. I was so young. Such huge bread in such small hands. It was so unfamiliar...alien. So somehow...wrong.

       it would be a good gimmick if you had a series of extra bits of moulding on the bottom of the tin to form proper hinges from the crust   

       i cant think of anything to make the clasp out of so cover all filling ingredients with syrup/honey/jam to stick it together
