5. Hot Dogs

The food item that highlighted the Great Sandwich Debate all those years ago. And you know what? Not a sandwich. All these hot dog defenders are missing one crucial thing: A hot dog bun is only one piece of bread. Gotta break that hinge to make it a sandwich!

4. Wraps

A bastardization of the hallowed sandwich — a dry-ass turkey roll isn’t lunch, no matter how you slice it. While there are foods that redeem the wrap’s justifiably lowly reputation, like gyros or burritos, they ain’t sandwiches.

3. Ice cream sandwiches

Yes, we know they have “sandwich” in the name. Yes, we know they have…

4. “So, you Moderna Massive or Pfizer Force Five?”

Despite what ironic hashtags will have you believe, this is an express flight to playing yourself. Science is dope, but pledging your allegiance to a billion-dollar pharma company is another thing entirely. This isn’t arguing about things with qualitative differences, like pizza chains and Girl Scout Cookies — they do the exact same thing in the exact same way. What, are you out here asking people if they’re Team Aquafina or Dasani?

3. “Girl, I’m like long-haul Covid — you think you’ve gotten over me, but I linger.”

Here’s a tip, Romeo: Your perseverance is not a virtue. Maybe not taking no for an answer was meant to be charming once upon a time, but so…

Stop being cute and just describe the damn thing!

6. Exuberance

For any general color you can think of, there are dozens of Pantone varieties. Take orange: There’s Orangeade, Jaffa Orange, Apricot, Orange.com (whatever the hell that means), Tangelo, D’angelo (okay, not that one), and the list goes on. Most of them at least sound orange. And then there’s… exuberance. We’re all for poetic license, but can anyone explain this one to us?

5. Urban Red

If we were being generous here, we’d say, “Clearly, Pantone was trying to evoke the deep-red hue of the bricks from which so many cities’ apartment buildings are built.” But we’re not that generous because we know exactly

No shots at the field, but let’s get some real New York legends in the mix

5. Times Square Elmo

If there’s one thing people dressed up as lovable characters and harassing tourists have in common, it’s that they know what a dollar’s worth — something that any NYC mayor needs to be in touch with. And be clear here: We’re not talking about the one that touched a kid. More like the one willing to throw hands for a bigger tip. Now that’s a work ethic!

4. Dapper Dan

The homebrewed fashion legend launched hip-hop style into the stratosphere with his bespoke ensembles — now he’s got brands like Gucci begging for that Uptown flavor. …
