yarb commented on the word BLT on a roll
You may be right, amigo - but still it riles me.Right now I'm desperately craving a BLT. With avocado! Oh my god.
yarb: I am not completely sure (this is why I changed it) but I think it is not that uncommon to call it "on a roll" (this doesn't make it correct, of course!).I'm aware this could also be the equivalent of a grocer's apostrophe (the "deli's on"?)

I think "on a roll" is more standard. Compare "ham on rye", "beef on weck".
