If you're looking for sports content, you can stop reading right now. I'm writing about bagels today because, well, the most active tweet in my Twitter timeline has to do with bagels.

Monday, a man who goes by Alek Krautmann tweeted that he'd recently introduced his coworkers to a new way of consuming bagels. In the tweet, he posted a photo of two boxes of Panera bagels, sliced as-if they're bread.

He calls it the "St. Louis secret" of ordering bagels.

Of course, he's getting ratioed on Twitter. Many, many people are taking exception with his method of eating bagels. Panera has weighed in. So has Dictionary.com.

Plenty of people are mocking the "St. Louis" aspect of it. Some are coming up with fake "St. Louis" ways to eat popular foods.

Personally, I have no interest in slicing my bagel up like it's bread. The outside of the bagel is the best part, and by doing this, you miss out on a lot of flavor.

What do you think?
