Threadstarter started thread for karma points

In case you’re wondering, threadstarter u/Golden-trichome later revealed he isn’t Singaporean.

He also clarified that it was the concept of the sandwich that he found “shitty”, but conceded that it tasted good.

He then apologised to Singaporeans, claiming that he started the thread to gain Reddit karma — points used to measure how much a redditor has contributed to the community.

Now that explains it all.

Ice cream sandwich is an ingenious invention
