Theories are circulating as to how the pigeon came to be wearing the bagel in such a fashion. Is vesting it the best way to keep other pigeons from eating the holy grail of bread snack products? Does it help with wind resistance when trying to fly away from toddlers that want to pet you? Does it increase visibility when trying to cross a busy street?

These are questions that may never be answered, but one thing for sure is that somewhere down in the subway pizza rat is letting go of his 15 minutes of fame.
