green bagels and ham

22 Mar

As I might have already mentioned once or twice, I’ve often noticed how America seems to be the Land of Ultimate Exaggerations.

This was nicely illustrated recently on St Patrick’s Day, which is a huge deal here in NYC with so many people of Irish descent.

Not only were about 50% of the people in the streets dressed in green and drinking Guinness, and every shop window bedecked with four-leaved clovers, but when I passed by a bagel shop, they were selling luminous green bagels.
