How do you like your sandwich? Do you savour the greens, or do you pull them out before you grab a bite? When it comes to sandwiches, everybody has preferences. Which is why when American comic and writer Josh Gonelman tweeted a picture of his Turkey sandwich recently, the internet was left divided. The amount of spinach stuffed in the sandwich became a subject matter of debate for the Twitterati on Wednesday.
The greens garnered reactions from across the world, while some cannot stop outraging, some found all that spinach inside the sandwich absolutely perfect.
In his viral tweet, Gonelman wrote “I don’t know what message she’s trying to send, but the lady at my bodega snuck an entire salad into my turkey sandwich,”

The hilarious episode also got a number of celebrities weighing in with their opinion on the ‘right amount’.
“Omg have her arrested,” Andy Lassner, the executive producer of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” wrote.
“Unpopular opinion: That looks good as hell,” tweeted comedian Donni Saphire.
Some also sympathised with the sandwich maker, “she accidentally got too much spinach on the last produce order and is trying to cover it up so her boss doesn’t find out spinach laundering”, tweeted a user.

As a spinach-aholic who has never once been served *enough* spinach, I want the name and address of this bodega.
