Without a doubt, the sandwich is the best food ever created, well, since sliced bread, as luck would have it. The namesake of the sandwich was indeed the Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu. He liked the sandwich because it kept his hands clean as he played cards, which had delicate paint on them in those times. Montagu was a fervent gambler.
On another note, James Cook, the explorer, was the first European to find the Hawaiian Islands. He named them Sandwich Islands after Montagu, who was then the acting First Lord of the Admiralty.
