Sandwiches have a tendency to slide
around and become "unlayered" in
transit (while packed in a bag, while
on their way to your table, ...).
The usual solution to this problem is
to spear the sandwich with a
toothpick. The toothpick solution
suffers from two flaws:
1. You have to remove
it when you eat
that part of the sandwich.
2. It sticks way out, making the
sandwich hard to pack in a bag.
I propose, then, a "sandwich staple"
which (like a regular staple) lies
flat to the surface of the sandwich,
and which is also made of an edible
(and perhaps even tasty) substance,
adding a little extra crunch to the
experience but nothing worse.
Wrap them in this

||I once got a brass beebee in my sandwhich. I think you just need to truss your sandwhiches tighter: try trussing them with thin strands of pork fat. Improves the flavor, too.
||My wife came up with sandwich glue, which bested my pathetic idea of magnetic bread.
||Bind the sandwich like a parcel with lots of Twizzlers.
||You could bind it with strips of nori (seaweed). Or just have sushi for lunch.
||if you wrap up your sandwiches they shouldnt move at all
||Two interlocking L shaped pretzels. Each perforates the bread, makes a 90 degree turn, and interlocks with the other pretzel. For very large sandwiches four pretzels could be used. The pretzels will interlock using my newly devised Pretzel Locking system, soon to be posted as a seperate idea.
||Who knew anyone in TheMilitary would come up with a creative masterpiece like licorice (red of course) bindings.
