Forget Nenghazi … here’s a scandal for you.
According to the UK Telegraph …
An Australian teenager measured his Subway “foot-long” sub and find it was an inch short.
The picture-is-worth-a-thousand words is buzzing the internet.
Subway’s corporate responses (two of them) are classics …
Company spokesmen and fan page postings tried 2 angles:
- “Looking at the photo which shows a slightly undersized sub, this bread clearly is not baked to our standards“
- “Subway Footlong” is a registered trademark “as a descriptive name for the sub sold in Subway restaurants and not intended to be a measurement of length.”
Of course, the bruhaha has prompted deserved ridicule ,,,
- “An inch or two can mean a big difference … if the Titanic had missed the iceberg by an inch or two it wouldn’t have sunk.”
- “Subway must have men doing their measuring ,,,”
- “Size matters …”
