Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (provided he or she emails me at with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is “JB,” who rebelled against the contest to give the sandwich a more (appropriately) Semitic name and instead argued, “Things are seldom named for their actual creators, and so it is both a logical and Jewish solution to keep the name ‘the sandwich.’ As long as the name remains, the sandwich will continue allowing us to combine our two favorite pastimes: eating and complaining about past wrongs against our people.”

Too true. JB gets a copy of Deborah Lipstadt’s The Eichmann Trial, because, I mean, if you wanna talk about past wrongs … .
