The Telegraph lists 20 "stupid" questions asked by passengers. One is:

"Excuse me, what's in the ham and cheese sandwich?"

All you have to do is look and see it is already more than "ham and cheese". That is the problem. Culturally say in New York, ask for "ham and cheese" and get just that, you want bread, ask for the bread, "stupid". In California when you ask for "ham and cheese" on rye, you get some amalgam of fruits, nuts, plants, and who knows what that the cook, owner or someone thinks you should have and never intends to inform you. Kind of like Republicans versus Democrats.

So to paraphrase Forest Gump, "Life is like a hand and cheese sandwich."
