Was John Candy’s final film, 1995’s Canadian Bacon, a prophecy of things to come?  Are our neighbors to the north attempting to infiltrate the United States in a way so devious, yet so delicious, that even Glenn Beck himself would welcome our new leaders?  Friends, we’re talking about Canadian bagels.  First they became the talk of the town in Brooklyn, and now it seems they’ve found there way into the heart of New York City:

“According to Tasting Table, Marketa, the Greek market from Estiatorios Milos owner Costas Spiliadis, is importing the bagels from Montreal, where Milos originated, and serving them with lox and cream cheese. The sandwiches cost a whopping $12.50 — order enough of them, you might as well book passage to Montreal and buy them there yourself.” (Via Village Voice)

Read between the lines people: “book passage to Montreal.”  The Canucks are taking over, and it seems there is nothing we can do but welcome our new leaders with open arms and hungry tummies.
