When another user posted a message calling out one of the members, moderator Matthew replied with a recipe for egg salad as a way to relieve the tension inherent in such a potentially troublesome thread. From there the topic of conversation degenerated into talk of ham, tuna and chicken salads, the divine nature of bacon, and various other sandwich related topics. The term "sammich" came from a fan created redub of a GI Joe cartoon public service announcement (Warning: Adult Language) in which one of the characters mentions eating "porkchop sammiches". The silliness eventually spread across the message board and several threads contained sammich jokes. Though mostly subsided, references to sammiches can still be found from time to time and a sammich emoticon () has been created.
