Subway Sued Over 11-Inch Footlongs

Remember when sub sandwiches were called submarine sandwiches because they were long and torpedo shaped?

  But they weren't really submarines, nor meant to be taken underwater.

Remember when sandwiches were so long and large that in some parts of the country they were called hero sandwiches because it was said it took a hero to finish them? But the sandwiches weren't really heroes, nor the patrons who ate them.

Now two New Jersey men are suing Subway for shorting them a half-inch to an inch in the advertised footlong sandwiches. But the plaintiffs may want to first read the dictionary. It defines footlong as:

foot·long [foot-lawng, -long] 1. approximately one foot in length: Their specialty is footlong hotdogs.
