#2 Woddy Allen explains it in "How to end with culture":
The sandwich was invented by the John Sandwich. His first try was a slice of bread between two slices of veal. Commercially lay it was an abject failure. Second version was three slices of bread: it got good critics but sales were just so-so and he ran in finanacial trouble so he had to use turkey because it was cheaper. THen after weekd of intense invetigations and experimenting, many sleepless nights and drastic cuts in his household expenses he came upon the winning formual: a slice of turkey between two slices of bread. This was an instant success, he was charged to provide the buffet for the Royal Jubilee and it success led the king to grant him the title of Count.
