Question of the day

Q: Is a burrito a sandwich?

A: Panera Bread Co. says yes. A judge says no.

Superior Court judge Jefferey Locke cited Webster Dictionary as well as a testomony from a chef in ruling today against Panera in its bid to prevent a Mexican restaurant from moving into the same shopping mall. Panera has a clause in its lease that prevents White City Shopping Center in Shrewsbury from renting to another sandwich shop. Panera tried to invoke that clause to stop the opening of a Qdoba Mexican Grill.

The difference, rules the judge, comes down to using two slices of bread versus one tortilla. Breaking News! Earth-shattering!

Moral - If I'm unemployed, I'd rather sue my neighbor than find a job...
