Cube Rule of Food

Is a hot dog a sandwich? It kinda seems like it is, but it's not quite the same shape. New York City classifies it as a sandwich, but not everywhere does. The debate has been all over the internet for years—until the Twitter account @phosphatide announced the "Cube Rule of Food," which is now a website. According to the rule, there are seven basic types of food shapes:

For example, a pie (with top crust) would be a taco shape turned sideways, a falafel pita would be a quiche/soup with bread bowl, and a burrito would be a calzone. The seventh option is salad, where the starch is distributed equivalently throughout.

It's a surprisingly solid, handy rule of thumb. Go check it out.
