I'd toast with it.

I'm not a comic book villain. Do you seriously think I would explain my master stroke to you if there were even the slightest possibility you could affect the outcome? I made the toast 35 minutes ago.

Wake me up when they have the Watchmen Babies edition.

It should make a different ink-blot on each piece, then it would be cool. Putting the head-shot smiley face on a piece of toast would be slightly less cool.

I'd use this for when I want to eat beans on toast. Cold beans of course.

It better not put Dr. Manhattan's wang on my toast.

I just came here to say the opening credits to the movie were some of the best I've ever seen. Rest of the movie was ok.

And on topic, I love toast.

I think I will buy this for my grandmother, who loved the movie enough to take up graphic novels after decades of hating them because in her day, comic books were filth that corrupted the young.

Don't ask me how that logic works. I think she read 'Seduction of Youth' before ever seeing so much as 'Archie' and then proceeded to drive my mom, aunt and uncles nuts from the Fifties through the 2010s. Only 'Wonder Woman' and 'Josie and the Pussycats' were allowed in their house growing up, and those were because Granny was also a first-wave feminist. (Considering all the BDSM in early 'Wonder Woman,' I have to conclude that the subsequent generations of feminist Girl Scout leaders in the family all come by their knot-tying skills honestly.)

My husband and little brother took Granny to the movies for her birthday while my sister and I planned her party and she thought the poster looked nice. I can't imagine what the box-office thought of a classic little old lady wanting to see 'Watchmen,' but somehow, it happened. Apparently the theater was full of geeks and when this old biddy came in with her walker to see a movie about superheroes, nobody had the balls to warn her, my little brother hadn't seen it or read the book and my husband is the sort of person who'll go along with most colossally bad ideas just to see what happens.

And she loved it! She apparently wolf-whistled at the scene in the Archimedes, yelled 'kick him in the balls!' during the scene with Silk Spectre I and the Comedian before Hooded Justice showed up, cried 'hit him again!' and clapped when Rorschach burned the other prisoner, etc. My husband, ever the shiat-stirrer, took her to a Barnes & Noble after the show and bought her the largest-print copy of the graphic novel they had, as well as a few others, including 'Maus,' the 'Mad Love' issue of Batman and some choice manga, including 'Hellsing' and 'Trigun,' you know, things we could lend her DVDs of if she liked them. (What goes through his mind, I'll never know. Until he married me, he had no living grandparents, so I don't think he understands the protocol of what we do and do not give grandmothers.)

To my mom, aunt and uncles' absolute disgust, she loved these, too, and has been to two anime/comic conventions since, all the while insisting that 'these new comics' are so much better than the nasty rubbish they had when my mother was little, all filled with sex, drugs and violence. We even got her into large-print Discworld books recently and now she has ambitions of cosplay, so if you're at a convention and see Sam Vimes and Sybil Ramkin pushing Nanny Ogg in a wheelchair, complete with a stuffed Greebo...yeah.

And that's IF we talk her out of being Silk Spectre I. Apparently she thinks my husband looks just like Don Dreiberg.

Ewwwww. Toaster Streudel are disgusting. Limp "pastrie" shell. Horrid filling. And that goo that you're supposed to fling all over it is frankly disturbing in a bow-chicka-bow-bow kind of way, if you know what I mean.

Give me the King of Toaster Treats: the un-frosted blueberry pop tart.

This looks like the same type of toaster that I've seen sold in stores with MLB and NFL team logos. They usually have special heating elements to "toast" the logo from the side of the toaster onto the bread. So you end up with a partially burnt and partially untoasted piece of bread.

This article makes me wonder if WB is actually/actively trying to drive Alan Moore insane.

We are thiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to making that bulging vein on Alan Moore's forehead explode. Next up: primetime network Watchmen/Power Rangers crossover series!

There's something wrong with you.
