Adam Sandler Partakes In A Time-Honored Jewish Tradition

We must interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this news alert: Adam Sandler visited a bagel shop in Montreal and he seemed to enjoy himself.

Yes, it’s another time-honored Jewish tradition done by an eminent Jewish celebrity. The time-honored tradition being, of course, fleeing the concrete jungle of New York for the more civil domain of Montreal, Canada to taste some of the finest bagels available on this planet. The eminent celebrity being, of course, “Punch Drunk Love” and “50 First Dates” star Adam Sandler.

The Montreal verus New York bagel war is one that has been raging for decades. Which city’s bagels reign supreme? Is it Montreal’s doughy confections or New York’s larger, fluffiest creations?

Well, it looks like we might know whose side Sandler is on.

Thanks for dropping by the bagel shop @adamsandler !
