Why is tulpæ the correct plural?
Well, it's quite obvious really. When you think about it, "tulpa" comes from a tibetan word, so therefor a latin pluralization must logically be used. You've seen æ before, for example the plural of "larva" is not "larvas", it's "larvæ". Similarly, the plural of "antenna" is "antennæ". Seeing this pattern in oft-used words of everyday speech, it is clear that this is the pluralization rule that should be applied to "tulpa".
Is a hotdog a sandwich?
No, a sandwich clearly requires the meat or other ingredients to be sufficiently flat, and for the breading to be two separate pieces. A sandwich should be able to theoretically have ingredients added inbetween and have the two pieces of bread be farther apart. Contrast this to a hot dog, where at some point ingredients will be on top and pile higher, but the single(!) piece of bread will be nearly stationary.
