Man's bagel-slicing method sparks debate on Twitter

A Toronto man has stoked controversy on Twitter for his eyebrow-raising technique of slicing a bagel.

On May 26, Shira Gold, a Canadian physician, shared a photo of a bagel that her husband had sliced vertically into flat rounds.

“I never understood all the fuss around interfaith marriage,” she tweeted. “Then I watched my non-Jewish husband cut a bagel like this, and honestly, I get it now”.

The post has since gone viral, receiving nearly 170,000 likes and over 4,000 comments, many of which questioned the unusual method.

In a follow-up tweet, Gold clarified that her husband did not slice the bagel with the intention of making bagel chips; .

instead, he topped the slices with poached eggs, thereby creating the “world’s worst eggs Benedict”.

In an interview with Today, Gold revealed that her husband,

who wished to remain anonymous.

doesn’t always eat his bagels in

sliced cuts but prefers to at home
