Square Bagels?!?!?!

What in the world is Mr. Thomas thinking? If bagels are now square, how are children supposed to learn their shapes???

Also, by definition (according to the ever-correct Wikipedia), "the bagel (or sometimes beigel; Yiddish בײגל beygl) is a bread product traditionally made of yeasted wheat dough in the form of a roughly hand-sized ring which is boiled in water and then baked."

Apparently, they missed the "ring" part of the definition. Let's define ring, shall we? Houghton Mifflin's dictionary says that a "ring" is "a circular object, form, line, or arrangement with a vacant circular center."

According to my calculations, circular = NOT SQUARE!!! *sigh* I guess we'll just need to invent another kind of circular food to help teach the children their shapes.

The square bagel - does it have a "round" center, cause if it does, then by definition, this could be a bagelly type of bagel since a bagel is anything with a "ring" which by definition is anything with a circular center. so hmmm...i dunno
