This guy spent $1500 and six months making a sandwich from scratch
And it wasn’t even that tasty.

MAKING A SANDWICH is perfectly simple, right?

You just take two slices of bread, add your favourite condiment, toss in the ingredients of your choice and voilà.

The whole thing should take maybe 3 minutes max — 5 minutes if you’re being really fastidious.

This guy, however, spent 6 months of his life and $1500 making a sandwich from scratch.

Why? Presumably because he has too much time and money on his hands.

I spent 6 months and $1500 to completely make a sandwich from scratch. Including growing my own vegetables, making my own salt from ocean water, milking a cow to make cheese, grinding my own flour from wheat, collecting my own honey, and killing a chicken myself.

 

He made a short video outlining the whole process.

We see him grow vegetables.

Then he goes out in a boat, collects sea water, makes salt and poses with a bag of said salt.

He milks a poor cow that probably doesn’t even know it’s starring in a ~viral~ video.

He harvests wheat, because of course he does.

He makes honey.

He makes bread.

And finally, he kills a chicken with his own bare hands. (And yes, you basically see the chicken being killed.)

Before he makes the $1500 sandwich.

The sandwich looks grand, but nothing more.

And when he bites into it, the disappointment is palpable.

It’s not bad. That’s about it.

Six months. $1500. Down the drain.

The lesson here? There’s nothing wrong with a plain ol’ hang sandwich.

At least it won’t disappoint you, right?
