Gurmlish – n. The red warning flag at the top of a club sandwich which prevents the person from biting into it and puncturing the roof of his mouth.
Be careful when dining out at lunch today at the better casual restaurants, because most of them will most likely have some kind of version of a club sandwich on the menu. When the server brings that lovely platter filled with turkey, ham, bacon, mayo, and veggies to you, you must remember to not only look for the gurmlish, but to remove it as well. That toothpick is the only thing hold that sandwich quarter together until you get it into your hand, and having a hole in your palate is going to be rotten way to spend the rest of your day at work or in classes. Gurmlishes might show up on other kinds of sandwiches, maybe on hors d’oeuvres tray, or even on one filled with petit fours. Gurmlishes might even be more of a common site with the holiday season coming up, so expect to see them not only at parties, but at grocery store demos, and maybe holding fruits together in well-dressed cocktails. Good luck out there, and don’t forget to look for the gurmlishes. They are there for your own protection.
