There's not much fun in having to sing for your supper — but how about having your sandwich sing for you? Brtiain's giant supermarket chain Tesco is out with sandwiches that, when opened, play a tune. A tiny sound module, much like that used in musical greeting cards, is embedded in the wrapping. Of course, it may be more irritating than amusing having your lunch play "Jingle Bells" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."
