PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The age-old question of whether a hoagie is better than a cheese steak has apparently been settled in the hoagie’s favor on the floor of City Council.

National Sandwich Day came earlier this month, and that prompted Primo’s Hoagies to stage a hoagie making contest, and Councilman Jim Kenney read the winning entry on the floor of City Council, “Hot capicola, home-style turkey breast, thinly sliced pepperoni, hot pepper cheese and mozzarella.”

At which point Council members were given samples of the winning hoagie, and Councilman Bill Green, who often battles Kenney on weightier issues, offered Kenney thanks, “I want to congratulate him on the extremely substantive important speech that he just gave.”

And Kenney shot right back, “I would just caution Councilman Green to chew his hoagie thoroughly so he doesn’t choke.”
