Retrospectacle: A Neuroscience Blog

Gone are the days of endlessly searching for that miraculous toast-burn in the shape of Jesus’ bewhiskered visage or the Virgin Mary’s devoutly lop-sided head! Glory be to the Zuse, the immaculate conception of a toaster and a printer, which burns black and toast-colored pictures onto (you guessed it!) toast. Might I suggest the most recent bird, Nobel prize winner, or cephalopod as toastly art?


Cult leaders can now print up-lifting messages on their toast to serve with cold, delicious Kool-Aid.
Got a favorite political candidate? Make them the “TOAST” of Washington, DC!

I think this might take the place of instant messaging or phone messaging. The new, hip thing it ‘toasting.”

    Last night I saw an image of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in my plate of spaghetti. Is this a miracle?

    The Japanese have a toaster that burns Hello Kitty on toast. They also have one that burns a panda on your toast. This is better because you can personalize it!
