It's important to have all bagels altered. Feral bagel packs wreak havoc on any ecosystem, especially in riparian zones, where they are known to attack large fish like salmon, whitefish, and even the elusive neufchateel.
Trust me, this surtax is a good thing. But it doesn't go far enough. There should be a maamtax to cover the female bagels as well. The most dangerous are the fertile ones - you can tell them apart because, after mating, they are covered in seed.
Disgusting creatures, really...

Sounds like a mohel will be needed. Who's gonna hold the bagel while it's cut?

Basily Gourt: The no income tax, no sales tax state of New Hampshire pulls stunts like this too.
Prepared foods are taxed at almost 10%. Nice surprise the first time you go out to eat.
15-20% tip + 10% sales tax.
Bon appetit!

Americans complaining about taxes is like a man complaining about his wife squeezing his hand too hard during childbirth.
