Welcome to Librarium Online!
Yes, this thread is about Bagels. When I was in england, specifically the Waterloo train station in London, I found a bagel store. The name of this bagel store was "The American Bagel Shop".
I decide to try it out and walk away with a paper grocer bag full of bagels. After foraging through the bag for what must have been 15 minutes I found there was no cream cheese. So I returned to the shop and asked if cream cheese was available and it was not. I then preceded to ask EVERY store/resteraunt in the general area if there was any cream cheese to be had on the entire island! Indeed there was none. I later returned to that supposedly American Bagel shop and said:
"This is Un-American!"
Either that neighborhood of London has an un-usual cream cheese deficit, or the British simply don't like cream cheese.
While I did not find any cream cheese, I did come away from england with a few more gallons of tea, suger, and milk in my stomach than when I started.
For every one to understand JUST HOW MUCH AMERICANS NEED CREAM cheese ON THEIR BAGEL I have included a link to a very funny flash video on the subject:

For those of you who have no Idea what this crazy yank is talking about:
The creamy cream cheese, with the creamy cheesy goodness!
Now THAT is an American bagel!
hahahahahaha! That was funny! What kind of bagel store doesn't have cream cheese? I mean I refuse to believe that ONLY Americans enjoy the nice chreamy.... cheesy...... cream cheese on our bagels! In fact if there is no cream cheese i just don't have any bagels.
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
Ahhh, cream cheese! What would life be like without you? Empty! God forsaken! Unlivable!
Cream cheese bagels are pure ambrosia!
Add a cup of Earl Grey with some sugar and milk, or coffee if you prefer and shut the world out for next 20 minutes!
If you haven't figured it out yet: Me likey cream cheese!!
i love foamy!! but yes, bagels must have butter, cream cheese, or peanut butter on them. That would be quite an outrage indeed!

Peanut butter? What heresy is this? Peanut butter is only good on PBJ sandwiches, celery, and English muffins. Putting it on a bagel, my friend, is just downright un-American. What are you, a Commie? Haha.
Penutbutter is good on bagles and on toast.
But shiver, do they just eat their bagles dry? what do they do to keep their mouths from shrivling up? :o

I'm trying real hard to remember if we ever bought cream cheese back in the UK, as far as I can remember we never did...then again none of us eat bagels. There is a pretty big difference between the food though. When we first moved here to the states it was hell trying to find good tea that wasn't iced, and you can imagine our confusion the first time we ran across southern food. "Dear god..it's all fried!"
On toast, maybe, but on the precious bagel, I can not... I will not stand by and watch this utter lunacy.Originally posted by Cypher19@Feb 9 2005, 19:31

If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one 'round to hear it is it still my fault.
ehh, even regular bagels with creamcheese is boardering on unamerican. mebbe canadian or something, a real american bagel is a pizza bagel with chopped garlic AND creamcheeze. now THATS american.
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
I'll agree to that. Its not really about the bagel, its about whats inside that counts!
I think the English put jam inside of the bagel. Not sure about that though. I really couldn't find anything that wasn't supposed to be put in my tea.
I suppose an English person might come to america, find "The English Tea Shop" and not be able to find anything that didn't belong in the bagel.
