The Daily Mail Asked If Anyone In Britain Could Make A Sandwich And You Can Guess What Happened Next

The speed of response when it comes to piss-taking in this country these days is really something.

1. Hello, and here is today’s Daily Mail front page, which asks a very important question.

2. A question that has shaken the country to its core.

3. Within minutes of the front page appearing, a nation responded.

4. This country INVENTED the sandwich, damn it.* *sort of

5. Indeed some would say there’s no country on earth with a greater aptitude for sandwich-making than this sceptred isle.

6. Others wouldn’t. But still…

Aw, man. The Daily Mail is right.

7. …there was outrage.

@aljwhite outrageous slander. #sandwiches

— Sam Dyslexio (@SamDyslexio)

8. It was time to prove them wrong.

Fear mongering if you ask me #sandwichgate

9. To show them what we could do.

How hard can it be? #sandwichgate

— Zorro P Freely (@banalyst)

10. Of course not everyone was successful, but no one said this game was easy.

Bastard cat won't stay still and let me sandwich him with bread to make a #dailymail mocking image #selfishcat

11. Or safe.

I've just tried to make a sandwich and accidentally got my head stuck in the blender. I think the Daily Mail might be right, you know.

12. We strove to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Been trying to make the kids sandwiches for 45 minutes now. I give up. .

13. For we are a proud nation.

This sandwich making business is harder than it looks.

14. Not one to back down.

That Mail headline about how there's no one left in Britain who can make a sandwich is nonsense and I'll prove it.

15. However politicised the issue gets.

If elected we will address this sandwich making skills gap @MailOnline As this must stop:

— Ed Balls (@eddbaIlsmp)

16. And we now know that when it comes to sandwiches, we know what we’re doing.

The @MailOnline obviously never saw @BagelsAndSamba's 6 fish finger and potato waffle sandwich.

It has been going on all morning. We have a fresh meme people. A fresh meme.

Bane, my lab, thinks @MailOnline may actually have a point for once... #sandwichgate

Twitter lampoons @MailOnline #sandwichgate headline This from @Kenny__Stewart, for example:

  1. Can you make a sandwich?
    1. I can’t make a sandwich, it’s impossible so no wonder we’re recruiting high-skilled labourers.
    2. I can make a sandwich and immigrants entering the job market don’t worry me.
