The meat in the sandwich is a common and socially acceptable term meaning a person who is in the middle of two opposing forces.

Being the meat in the sandwich is often a dangerous place to be, as the meat is invariably chewed up and swallowed.

One might overhear at a dinner party, "Oh yes, young Timmy is the meat in the sandwich, with his parents fighting like that."
