: : : : : Someone being "the meat in the sandwich". What does that mean?

: : : : Just guessing -- a person of substance?

: : : In the world of depraved humor, being the meat in the sandwich is often thought of as a good thing, one of the best-known cases of which was Lucky Pierre. But please don't ask me to explain, other than that there was Pierre, in the middle between two babes.
: : : SS

: : Oh, my.

: In the version I heard, Pierre was between two men. ~rb
