Gawker says that Subway has finally addressed the social media protest against their eleven-inch "footlong" subs.

While Subway acknowledged that the undersized bread "is not baked to our standards," it goes on to claim that there really is no such thing as "undersized bread" because "footlong" is just a word.

"With regards to the size of the bread and calling it a footlong, 'SUBWAY FOOTLONG' is a registered trademark as a descriptive name for the sub sold in Subway® Restaurants and not intended to be a measurement of length."

After Subway wrote this response on Facebook, BuzzFeed published screenshots from Subway commercials demonstrating that their ads do, indeed, suggest that their footlong sandwiches are a foot long. If the Obama administration gave a good goddamn about the American public, we'd see troops invading Subway shops from coast to coast until this international crisis is resolved. Personally, I can't even believe that Subway is legally allowed to use the word "sandwiches" to describe their product.
