“It’s impossible to make half a sandwich”

On the American television sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the episode “The Guitarist Amplification” that originally aired on November 9, 2009, the character Sheldon Cooper (actor Jim Parsons) said:

“You can’t make a half sandwich. If it’s not half of a whole sandwich, it’s just a small sandwich.”

The saying has been printed on an image.

“You can’t make half a sandwich” is another version of the saying. “A half sandwich? Do I have to wait for a stranger to order it as well? You can’t make half a sandwich, then it’d just be a small sandwich” was posted on Twitter by Thomas Jager on January 24, 2011. “‘You can’t make half a sandwich. If it’s not half of a whole sandwich, it’s just a small sandwich.’—Dr. Sheldon Cooper” was posted on Twitter by Liz Burnett on October 24, 2011. “I uploaded a new episode, ‘Episode 61: You Can’t Make Half a Sandwich, You Idiot’” was posted on Twitter by Four Fat Guys on April 3, 2019.

Can you make a half-sandwich without making the whole sandwich and then cutting it in half? I think not.
