Silly Story - Subway 11" footlong

http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/...

What people don't realize is that all they have to do at Subway is stretch the dough an extra inch. Maybe their new marketing scheme is 13" footlong.

The meat filling will remain the same due to portion control. The only thing you gain on is a little extra mayo and lettuce.

  1. We have been fans of FIrehouse Subs for a long time - and we noticed the bread is narrower now, but about the same length. Where before I could only finish 1/2 a sandwich, I can pretty much finish the whole thing now. I am disappointed! I'd rather they went up $1 or something.

      1. Someone must have downloaded a measuring app onto their phone.

              ROFLMAO!!!! OMG, that is great. :-D

              1. Took a guy to measure it. I guess women are more trusting when it comes to professed length of items.

                  Never believe her when she sez the 6 inch sub is just the right size for her.
