sandwich eater
 n.— «The official team wasn’t just kinda late, but also ineffective, according to those on the ground. “Those guys are called ‘the sandwich eaters’…The official clean-up guys hang out in their vans and then walk to the sand for the 5pm TV photo op with rakes and shovels. When they first showed up, one of our team saw them raking the sand up by the dunes and was like, “hey, that’s all nice and everything, but the oil’s over here.’”» —“Kill The Spill” by Marcus Sanders in San Francisco Surfline (Huntington Beach, California) Nov. 13, 2007.
