Fed up by perpetually squat Subway sandwiches, two New Jersey men — whose lawyer measured subs from 17 locations and found that not one of the fast-food chain's supposed foot-longs measured up — are suing the company. The plaintiffs' lawyer, Stephen DeNittis, says Subway should either make its sandwiches 12 inches long or stop advertising them as such. The filing follows The New York Post's own investigation, which found that four out of seven subs fell short. "They're cheating us," one irate customer told The Post. "They state it's a foot long, so it should be a foot long!" Be a hero, Subway.
