Alek Krautmann, being the considerate coworker he is, brought in everyone’s favorite breakfast food: bagels!

Alek picked up two boxes of fresh bagels from his local Panera Bread in Washington, D.C. He selected a nice assortment, too. There were plain bagels, sesame bagels, everything bagels…

Before his coworkers gathered to feast in the break room, Alek snapped a photo of his generous offerings and posted it to Twitter.

“Today I introduced my coworkers to the St Louis secret of ordering bagels bread sliced,” he captioned the picture.

And with that, #Bagelgate commenced.

You see, these bagels were not sliced down the middle, dividing them into two equal halves.

Watch the video below to see why these St. Louis-styled bagels are causing a huge, polarizing commotion on Twitter and beyond… nationwide, in fact!
