Are clothes just comfy sandwiches?


#1

Well, what are they?


#2

:thinking: Food for thought.


#3

Part of me desperately wants to argue that they’re more of a cabbage roll.

The rest is advising me not to make myself complicit in this.


#4

I think it’s more that people in clothes are sandwiches.

Making us the lunchmeat.


#5

calling something “sandwich” is just yet another expression of the oft-repeated human pattern of attempting to make sense of an inherently chaotic and unfair universe. so, sure, why not, call it a sandwich. it will not help you


#6

I choose to think of sandwiches as delicious clothes.


#7

I believe in a meaning-is-use model of meaning in language, and that these sandwich definition debates serve as a very good illustration of why trying to assign meaning by definition instead see meaning as a by-product of usage is a futile project doomed to failure and at best only serves to create fake problems.

On the other hand, yeah, probably.


#8

Yes. Absolutely.
