People in St. Louis slice bagels like bread. Internet not amused.
It doesn’t take much for the denizens of Twitter to get into a tizzy.
Wednesday’s installment came in the form of a bagel. More specifically on how and where it is sliced.
It even had its own hashtag.

Apparently, the citizens of St. Louis get their bagels cut vertically instead of horizontally.

Earlier in the week, someone with the Twitter handle of Alek Krautmann introduced social media with a photo of said sliced bagels from a Panera.
“Today I introduced my coworkers to the St Louis secret of ordering bagels bread sliced. It was a hit!” Krautmann said in the tweet.

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York wasn’t buying it over the traditional horizontal slice. The Democrat tweeted “St Louis, fuhgeddaboudit.”

New York City’s chief of detectives Dermot Shea thanked posters for reporting “this crime.” He wrote it would never happen in New York.
Thank you for reporting this crime, but we only serve New York City, where this would NEVER happen. https://t.co/dNCyX56svk
