Sorry, that response is reflexive.

In other handy tips, that entire line is somewhat redundant. I'll 
provide a translation:

   What do I know from bagels? A New Yorker I'm not!

As to the Ohio part, New Yorkers don't care where you're from if
you're not from New York.

Bagels aren't really a Jewish thing. They're an Eastern European
immigrant thing. Jews are just better known for tending to not give 
up their immigrant ways.

Don't believe everything you read. Think of it this way: outside
of Ohio you'll find chili on the menu at many restaurants, but
only a few will serve it over pasta to make you feel at home.

> I don't even know what Lox is.

It's thinly sliced, smoked, cured salmon. The same food is eaten
under essentially the same name all over Northern Europe.

The smoky & soft lox, the creamy cheese, the crunchy sharp onion,
the chewy bagel... it's all about the combination of tastes and
textures. Mmmm.

Coffee doesn't like you, either! I think you're nice, though. =^>
