What the hell is a Po Boy? Never even heard anyone call it that before.

Jim: "Hey Danny what are you eating?"
Danny: "Oh I'm just enjoying my Po Boy, it's a foot long"
Jim: "Oh your Po Boy looks delicious, might if I have a bite of it?"
Danny: "Sure, you can get a bite of my Po Boy"

Do you see how weird that sounds?

That's what they call them in New Orleans. I'm not sure where else, though.

That's definitely a sub or a hoagie. Both would be correct. For those selecting "hero"...

This is a hero:


This is a gyro (known as shawarma everywhere else in the world)



Edit:

I know in New York City, people calls subs Heros for some reason. I wonder if it was because of the similarity of gyros and subs it morphed into Hero.

I call it a sub, but when I'm talking to the natives in Philadelphia, I have to say "hoagie," because otherwise they have no idea what I'm talking about.
