I ate an old unrefrigerated sandwich. Am I going to die?

It was an Italian sandwich with capicola, pepperoni, salami, mortadella, provolone cheese, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, hot peppers, and mustard. There was no mayo. I got the sandwich around 11am, then it sat on my desk in a plastic box in my room temp office until I left work around 5pm. Then it sat in my hot car until 8pm while I was at a happy hour. I didn’t end up eating it until about 8:45pm.

    You will die. Someday. We all will.

    Eventually, yes. The sandwich sounds like it was delicious! And no mayo? Excellent. You will most likely be totally fine. But we're all waiting for an update on this now, as some of us are concerned that it was indeed your last meal.

    No, you'll just smell like something has died for a while.

    Well if you're not dead by now from eating the sandwich, chances are you're OK.

    If it didn't make you sick at the time you ate it, you'll live.

    No, but you are going to be growing a mustache, speaking Italian and have smelly arm pits for a while.

    Get ready for the cleanout. Woosh. Flush.

    You would actually be better off throwing up.

    And in the future, have some self-respect.
