22 May 06Apple Releases Open Source Sandwich.

Just days after rumors began to swirl that Apple had decided to close the Darwin kernel, the company attempted to demonstrate its commitment to open source today by open sourcing a sandwich.

According to a spokesperson for Caffe Macs, Apple has open-sourced the Thursday “Meal Deal”, a warm turkey sandwich known as “the Gobbler.”

Documents forwarded to Crazy Apple Rumors Site by sources indicate that the Gobbler is compiled by conducting the following steps in order:

  1. Slice open 1/2 of a French baguette.
  2. Toast the baguette lightly.
  3. Spread both sides with mayonnaise.
  4. Place a heaping portion of premium sliced turkey breast on one side and cover with provolone cheese.
  5. Spread horseradish on the other side.
  6. Toast again until the cheese melts.
  7. Serve hot.

Some Apple followers derided the move as a diversionary tactic on Apple’s part to deflect criticism over locking down the Darwin kernel.

Ars Technica’s John Siracusa said “If Apple believes it’s going to make us forget about the Darwin kernel by offering up this toasty sandwich, with gooey melted cheese and spicy horseradish, smothered in rich mayonnaise… mmm… all inside French bread that’s both soft and crispy… oh, yeah… that’s the stuff…

“What was I talking about?”

Siracusa, who noted he hadn’t had lunch yet, was soon speculating about hacking the sandwich to include bacon and possibly even avocado.

    This CANNOT be.

    We veggies protest.

    And we’ve got Steve on our side.

  5. Buthidae says:

    See, Apple’s not so bad! They may close a door and lock the windows, but it’s so tasty!

    Actually, this turkey’s a little dry…

    Hey, Luddites, how’s the centering problem? Fixed?

    You know, all the boss new browsers these days are free. Really. They just give them away. Seems like a crazy business model to me, but that’s what they do.

  7. comacnut says:

    The Turkey’s dry? You must of skimped on the spicy horseradish and rich mayonnaise. Put enough mayonnaise on and you could be eating an ibook and it’d be nice and juicy.

  8. GingerSex says:

    AAAAAAth with crispy on the outside, soft in the middle.

  9. Ace Deuce says:

    Please don’t hack while I’m trying to eat. It’s rude. Plus, I suck at the Heimlich Manoeuvre.

    Or was it CPR? Maybe it was that I suck at drinking through a straw.

  10. Huh? says:

    It just won’t be the same, or so my Pants™ tell me, until the Roast Beef Special is Open Sourced….

    oh… get ready for number…

  12. Streetrabbit says:

    Don’t forget, cheddar cheese for a universal sandwich.

    Colby for the PPC diehards.

  13. Streetrabbit says:

    Provolone?…Oh…didn’t read that bit…..didn’t read any of it actually.


    That’s a classic sandwich!

    Apple shysters!

  14. GordonC says:

    Hurrah for Apple, open-sourcing sandwiches. I’m going to do the same.

               Gordon’s Best Sandwich

    Slice 2 or 3 chestnut mushrooms in to 1 cm pieces, and drizzle a little sesame oil onto them. Dry-fry two rashers of streaky bacon in a very hot large cast-iron skillet. After half a minute, add the oil-soaked mushrooms and three uncut cherry tomatoes.

    Cut two 1 cm slices of tiger bread and spread one side of each slice with a 3 mm layer of crunchy peanut butter.

    Make space on the skillet and melt a small knob of butter with a drop of sunflower oil, then fry a corn-fed egg, sunny side up in the butter. When almost cooked sprinkle a little sea salt (large grain) onto the white of the egg, and spoon a little of the hot butter over the top.

    Grate a goodly amount of black pepper over the bread. Place the egg on one slice, and spread the yolk onto the other slice. Arrange the other ingredients on top of the egg distributing them evenly.

    The mushrooms should be nearly dry and well browned, the bacon fat crispy and golden, the egg lightly cooked but firm and the mushrooms should explode satisfyingly in the sandwich when you bite it.

    Serve with a glass of 2/3 pineapple juice, 1/3 pink grapefruit juice and a dash of lime juice.

    For a tangy variation, spread a thin layer of Marmite on the bread before the peanut butter.

  15. GordonC says:

    Darn – no editing for comments.

    Tomatoes explode, not mushrooms. Also it’s easier to grind pepper than to grate it.

  16. Eric says:

    That is NOT a Gobbler!!

    1. Slice a soft roll (preferably Potato)
    2. Toast the roll lightly.
    3. Spread both sides with Miracle whip.
    4. Place a heaping portion of left over roasted turkey breast on one side and cover with provolone cheese.
    5. Spread jellied cranberry sauce on the other side.
    6. Add a heaping portion of leftover stuffing.
    7. Serve cold.

  17. GordonC says:

    You’re right – it’s the rich folks version – the Snob-Gobbler!

  18. Jared the ex-Subway spokesman says:

    Could I have a bite of your sandwich, please? Jon Lovitz just kicked my ass.

  19. A priest, a rabbi, and Dan Brown says:

    I knew a girl in college who was called “The Gobbler”, and I can tell you, it had nothing to do about a turkey sandwich! …or turkey sounds. I think you get the picture. If not, I can send you a web link to some of the pictures 🙂

    TMI dude.

    I was going to wax rhapsodic about the wonders of an Italian sub, but you ruined it for me.

    Yay, no more alignment problems!

    Now I can return to wasting time on my work PC.

  22. NWJR says:

    It should be open-face as well as open-source. It’s only right.

  23. UhhhDude says:

    You know those sandwiches you get from the vending machine? The ones that were prepared, like, seven years ago and wrapped in plastic? The ones where the bread tastes like styrofoam and the meat has the texture of cowhide? The one you bought only because you were desperately hungry, then lived to regret it as it tore through your digestive tract?

    Voila! The Windows(R) SandwichXP.

    Hello everybody.



  25. Enlightened folks substitute thin-sliced, hickory-smoked Tofurky in place of the animal flesh. Extremely enlightened folks forgo the coagulated bovine lactate and use Nayonnaise in place of the ovum dressing.

  26. gono says:

    Does anybody know if it is possible to grab it pre-compiled somewhere?

  27. a says:

    no cranberry sauce? cheese? blasphemer.

    Yes, tragically, the site works with EyeEEeee on a PeeSea now. Thank you Masako. NOT! Those who use such devices and software deserve to suffer.

    And I am NOT sharing my Gobbler with them. Piss off.

  31. Del says:

    The Gobbler is really a vegan sandwich. As Tenzin pointed out all the ingredients have vegan options that Apple is secretly replacing the animal byproducts with. It s the first step in making us like Steve. You know from the planet Vega. Once we reach his enlightened state we will be one with Apple and get our own RDF. Plus it’s good for your iKarma.

  32. Mayo becomes secret sauce when toasted! Ha Ha, Sauce!

  33. Werner Waimarana says:

    No Tofurkey? Try substituting with Tricken, Notsages or even Facon. Mmmm. Ersatz goodness.

  34. vilms5000 says:

    Italian sub?
    You mean the famous Italian MIDGET subs? Scourge of the British Navy in WW2? Eh? EH?


  35. Steve Jobs says:

    This just in, I’ve also registered the name “Earl of Sandwich.” I was going to make it Burl of Sandwich, but he was one of the original Mac team. And he loved pineapple pizza.

    Oh well, Earl of Sandwich is fine. Just call me Steve for short.
