If "sandwich generation" refers to people sandwiched in between caring for
their children and caring for their parents, then I am baffled what "club
sandwich generation" might refer to, since a "club sandwich" has three slices
of bread and two layers of filling.

I have a vague recollection that the name refers not to the appearance of the
dish but rather to its having been originated in Louisville's Brown Hotel.
