Some people are truly dedicated to their web sites.

Before you think I’m talking about Lenny, Tiff, Steve or Beth, I direct you instead to Nick Chipman, the creator of He’s a food blogger, and he, like many other food bloggers, he likes to experiment.

Some people like to experiment with spices, some with cooking techniques, some with artistic design. Chipman likes to experiment with sanity.

Case in point: the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a sandwich with a filling for every letter of the alphabet. From the site:

(D)o you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.

The components, in alphabetical order and including the garlic bread “bun”, were: avocado, bacon, cheese, Doritos, egg, fish sticks, garlic bread, ham, Italian sausage patty, jalapenos, Krispy Kreme doughnut, lettuce, mac & cheese, noodles, onion rings, pepperoni, queso blanco dip, ramen noodles, spinach, turkey burger, Usingers bratwurst, veal parmesan, waffle, xylocarp, yams, zucchini.

How did he manage to stuff all that in his mouth? Well… in my view, at least, he cheated a little. He deconstructed the sandwich and ate in parts, although he did consume the entire thing in one day. But when giant party subs are regularly constructed and counted as single large sandwiches, he has a strong case for it being presented as one big, albeit somewhat disturbing, sandwich.

In case you think this might have been a single moment of oddity, I present you with a clip from CNN about one of his other famous efforts, the McEverything:

Question of the night: What’s your favorite sandwich?
