Ah...*this* is why I like FW people!

Mean estimates of the difference in calories and weight would really take the cake! Yes, I have high standards.

If they wanted to cheat the customers they would make the bread shorter, ie not as tall, instead of cutting the width of the bread. They could take the 11" dough and stretch it out just a bit. Since the bread is hand made it will never be the same size consistently.except that it was consistently found that the subs were 11" rather than 12". that adds up when you sell millions of subs.Add to this the savvy observation (not originally mine) that they don't tend to err on the side of 13 inches, just the south end of the normal distribution curve...

edit - StevenColorado beat me to this post! +1 to you sir.

You must be absolutely livid with all of those "2x4s" in your house.

Touche, but the analogy follows that the 2x4 measure is width/depth and not length; it's length that is not rounded up...
