Mobius Strip Bagel

bagel0

George W. Hart has brought us a milestone in breakfast-related math feats, the mobius strip bagel. Directions for making your own are on the link. The author says these are superior to regular bagels for non-math-related reasons as well.
It is much more fun to put cream cheese on these bagels than on an ordinary bagel. In additional to the intellectual stimulation, you get more cream cheese, because there is slightly more surface area.

Well, that's not really a Mobius. To see how some sculptors have actually tried to cut a torus into a mobius, check out http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~sequin/PAPERS/Banff05_SplitTori.pdf

Good thing it's a bagel and not toast, if that was ever to find itself in a struggle to find itself butter side down... who knows what catastrophe could happen.
