Bagel Related Injuries still rule the ER.
America consumes some 5 million bagels per year.
Each of us eats some 10 bagels each per year.
Amongst our group of bagel eaters, about 2500 of us will have ended up in the ER with some awful slice to the hand that needs more than a bandaid,
So this is my public service announcement: Use A bagel-slicer if you can.
Otherwise: Check to see if the bagel is pre-sliced; don't plunge your knife-wielding hand through the bagelage. Then, after you've checked, only appply the knife lightly; let the knife do the work.
Some cream cheese, lox, and there you go.
This has been a Public Service Announcement.
