A fine tradition in NYC

100+ years ago, before prohibition, the busy body progs were also trying to regulate away saloons.  (effing Teddy Roosevelt...)

You had to serve food if you wanted to serve booze.

So they brought you a sandwich with your drinks.  Then they took the sandwich away.  Then they brought that same sandwich to the next table with their drinks, and on and on.  After a week that one sandwich looked pretty...  leggy.  Especially if it was egg salad.  So, a rubber sandwich was made up to be the served 'food' to comply with the law.  What do you want for nuthin'  A rubber biscuit?

Well, the progs are at it again, and New York saloon keepers are just as resourceful.
