The Discovery of the Bagel

Whoever came up with the bagel was a right-smart clever fellow His brainstorm surely ranks up there with taste treats like pudding and jello For I'd never put toppings on pudding like lox, tomatoes or cream cheese And who would think of serving jello with an assortment of delicacies So, a doff of the cap and three cheers for that purely anonymous soul the centerpiece of whose discovery was quite an ace in the hole

Oh vegie spread on this circled bread. I need one toasted before bed. It’s just the gained weight I dread. Tee hee I love this one Gershon! So much fun to read, I smiled all over the place :)

I'm glad you found this one, Marikate. There's a certain hole-someness about it. :)

You just can't beat a morning bagel with a good cream cheese and java. It's just the perfect way to start the day. Enjoyed.

I guess that the bagel also made it easier to make, back i the days when bread you had to bake. :)

The inventor was probably a mother trying to get her kids to eat the damn thing because that was all she had to fill their stomachs. The man comes in to the picture by realising he can make some money out of it. Enjoyed, Gershon! Aloha!

I pictured someone eating a bagel and saying these lines, savoring each bite, and tenderly retrieving each fallen crumb. You made me hungry! :)
