Al chater wal machtour

Today's Arabic lesson goes back to the days of Pan-Arabism. With so many new words hitting the Arab nations, there was an over-zeal to Arabize them. Which brings us to "Al chater wal machtour wal kamekh ma baynahouma" or "the slicer, the sliced, and what lies between them" - other people simply call it "sandwich".
