Bagel = BAY-gle or BAA-gle?

I say to-may-to,  you say to-mah-to. I say po-tay-to, you say po-tat-o…And, hey, that’s okay with me. However, I say bay-gle, and if you say baa-gle, mark my words, I will not call the whole thing off. I’m not that forgiving. I don’t like baaglers. I also don’t like shed-ulers (for schedule) and q-ponners (for coupon) . Starting today, I’m cracking down by cracking the heads of baa-glers.

Anyway, I was going to write some more on this subject, but I need to grab a cold refreshing glass of malk.

Are you a baa-gler or a bay-gler? Any other pronunciations that drive you nuts? Do some countries/cities/regions say one over the other?
