If hot dogs are sandwiches, then are stuffed buns sandwiches?

Man, I could go for some Chinese sandwiches.

"A study in the journal Nature said that in 2005, Wikipedia's scientific articles came close to the level of accuracy in Encyclopædia Britannica and had a similar rate of "serious errors".[4] Encyclopædia Britannica disputed the Nature study,[5] and Nature replied with a formal response and point-by-point rebuttal of Britannica's main objections.[6] Between 2008 and 2012, Wikipedia articles on medical and scientific fields such as pathology,[7] toxicology,[8] oncology,[9] pharmaceuticals,[10][11] and psychiatry[12] were compared to professional and peer-reviewed sources and it was found that Wikipedia's depth and coverage were of a high standard. Concerns regarding readability were raised in a study published by the American Society of Clinical Oncology[13] and a study published in Psychological Medicine (2012),[12] while a study published in the European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology raised concerns about reliability.[14]"

Wikipedia is not a source.

Ironically, what is or is not a sandwich gets asked often enough that there are whole articles about it:

Can Burgers and Hot Dogs Be Considered Sandwiches?

Is anything a sandwich when it’s on bread?
In life, sometimes we encounter questions whose answers shake us to our very core and make us question everything we thought we knew on an existential level. Whether burgers and hot dogs can be considered sandwiches is not one of those questions. But it’s still worth asking.

The answer comes down to another profound question: What, exactly, is a sandwich? Merriam-Webster defines it as “two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between.” Simple enough. Essentially, anything can be a sandwich so long as it’s between two slices of bread or inside a roll or bun. So yes, unequivocally, hot dogs and hamburgers are very much sandwiches.

But it’s not so simple. When we think of sandwiches, we think of peanut butter and jelly, or a turkey club, or an Italian sub, not a bacon cheeseburger. Just like when we think of fruit, we think of apples and bananas, not tomatoes (which are in fact fruits). Burgers and hot dogs exist in their own section of the menu, separate from the “Sandwiches.” For all intents and purposes, they are completely different food items from sandwiches. But in terms of classifications, these cookout staples are indeed sandwiches, whether you think of them that way or not.

The bigger debate is whether sandwiches should ever be chilled or not.. some, especially the French, would say that chilling a sandwich is a travesty.

Of course safety technocrats happily blanket ban good sandwiches cos some kid somewhere got salmonella or something but to chill a sandwich destroys a sandwich.

You could make the argument that an ice-cream sandwich is a "sandwich" only as an analogy. Like how having sex between two other people is a "sandwich."

No that looks like a bun, nut a sandwich, the hotdog looks like it was originally baked inside the bun. You can buy this kind of hot dog bun at chinese dumpling shops. It definitely is a bun, not a sandwich.

At school, people comment on how smart I am.
Then stuff like this happens.
And I feel completely stupid.
Either way: Hotdogs only have three sides exposed, whereas a sandwich has all sides (with the exception of top and bottom) exposed. So therefore a Hotdog is 3/4 sandwich. So Hotdogs are not sandwiches.

Since the bun is one piece of bread, that disqualifies the hot dog from being a sandwich.
