“Any sandwich is a panini if you sit on it”

Panini sandwiches are grilled sandwiches, and the bread is flat. “If you have heated seats in your car, any sandwich put on them can become a panini if you sit on it” was cited on Twitter on May 8, 2012. “Every sandwich is a panini if you sit on it long enough” was cited on Twitter on September 27, 2015.

The jocular saying was popularized when Eden Dranger tweeted on April 28, 2016, “Any sandwich is a panini if you sit on it.”


Wikipedia: Panini
In many English-speaking countries, a panino (Italian pronunciation: [paˈniːno], from Italian, meaning “small bread, bread roll") is a grilled sandwich made from bread other than sliced bread.

Examples of bread types used for panini are baguette, ciabatta, and michetta.
