It's a New York tradition. Well-known newcomers to the city often have sandwiches named after them at the world-famous Carnegie Deli.
So this week, in honor of the rumored introduction of the Apple iPad 2 on Wednesday, the Carnegie has announced its latest, the iPad 2 Wrap. It won't be unveiled until the middle of the week, but a few of the ingredients have been leaked to the media:
-- Tender slices of beef tongue (iPads are known to be kind of mouthy, you know!)
-- Chunks of apples (all kinds: Granny Smith, McIntosh, etc.), bathed in a pear glaze
-- Thinly sliced roast beef (Apple plans to roast the competition)
-- Russian dressing (just to let the Russians know: ha ha, the iPad 2 is American all the way!)
-- Corned beef (St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner)
-- Deviled eggs (in recognition of the fact that competitors will
have egg on their faces)
-- Lettuce and tomato (salads are a must for California concoctions like Apple products)
Fortunately Apple has announced that the iPad 2 comes with a pre-loaded app providing all sorts of remedies for indigestion. Whew. Just in time!
