“Pizza in the mornin’/pizza in the evenin’/pizza at suppertime…when pizza’s on a bagel, you can eat pizza anytime!”
That’s right, folks. Pizza is healthy and appropriate for consumption first thing in the morning if you put it on top of a healthy bagel. Because in the ’80s and ’90s, bagels were health food…provided the cream cheese was low-fat. You with me?
Please don’t get me wrong, fellow carb-lovers. I am by no means urging you to avoid eating pizza OR bagels OR Bagel Bites. After all, the reason I’m blogging about this today is because it’s Wednesday, and for me and my co-workers, that means free-bagels-in-the-staff-lounge day.

Today I am delighting in a time when bagels were health food, and Bagel Bites were sold as breakfast fare. I’m also delighting in the “WTF” moment of the above video, at :09, when that scary girl drops a double eyebrow-raise. What’s up with that? It’s as if she knows the announcer is about to tell us that Bagel Bites are “wholesome.”
And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to throw elbows to get the last of the regular cream cheese packets…
