Pop Goes The Toaster 4

My toaster is amusing. No, wait, hear me out!

The springs are severely overwound, since it’s apparently supposed to mostly be toasting bagels and other large bread items. Those pop up a bit more perkily than usual, but not so you’d really notice.

However, when I toast bread, the bread goes flying out of the toaster, at least a foot in the air.

My timing has actually gotten to the point that I can catch it with a plate as it falls back down like they do in cartoons and movies.

I’ve only recently started toasting bread in it (I usually toast frozen waffles), and I laugh my ass off everytime the bread soars ungracefully into the air.

    I second that demand. Also, why is the page refreshing to a comments box in Safari?

    I’ll see what I can do with video when I get home. And I think there’s something screwy in the Haloscan code, let me see if posting another comment fixes it.
