Reality is always stranger than fiction ...

<link>

BorgCo scriptwriters will shortly be releasing a draft of a screenplay and looking for crowdfunded financing to enable production.

It will be a thriller move based around the story of an ordinary member of the public who becomes trapped on an express train, which is both occupied and operated by intoxicated half-bakers intent on mayhem, and their subsequent desperate efforts to escape with life, limb and sanity more or less intact.

Hilarity and/or terror ensue.

       [+] simply for <link>   

       "Video posted on Twitter showed women placing bagels on a man's head before he threw them out of the window."   

       and   

       "Two officers later board the train and ask passengers for an explanation."

       Maybe the man was wearing an item from the new MaxCo range of wearable technology- the Hat Toaster ?   

       Or maybe the women thought he was, but he wasn't. Maybe he just has an oddly shaped head that looks like he's wearing a toaster...

       Simply send the BTP a link to the MaxCo. Hat Toaster™, by way of an explanation. Sorted. (as I believe y'all say, across the pond,eh?)

       The word is certainly in colloquial usage, but is typically pronounced "Saw-Tid" by a certain variety of prole known as a "chav", and is part of a Nadsat-like dialect common to speakers of "Estuary English" , generally found in the swamps and marshlands to the North-East of "Lunnon".   

       Whatever ...

       //both occupied and operated by intoxicated half-bakers intent on mayhem//   

       One of whom readily falls into an idiom of an incredibly smug detective.   

       Haircule Poisson: The bageler must still be on this train.

       Crêpes! We've all been bageled.

       Can't help thinking there's something a bit fishy about that bloke ...

       Herman who?
pashute, Mar 04 2017
  

       Marx. Hermann Marx, brother of Karl. They had one of the funniest dialectic materialist philosophical comedy double acts of the 19th century. They topped the bill at all the great music halls - "A smile, a song, and an intellectually rigorous justification of the need for control of the means of production by the proletariat."

       And Groucho.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 04 2017
  

       Yes, but he left after the second season to go into retailing with a man called Spencer.

       No, you're thinking of Michele Dotrice
