Where Does the Name Sandwich Come from?

Answer

The origin of the word sandwich was born in London during the very late hours one night in 1762 when John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich (1718-1792), was too busy gambling to even stop for a meal though he was hungry for some food. Legend goes that he ordered a waiter to bring him roast-beef between two slices of bread whence came the term sandwich.
