'''Toasters''' are about the most lovable [[sex toy]] known to [[man]]. In fact, toasters are commonly known as "man's best friend."
+
A toaster is a small land crustacean. It is generally shiny and box-like, although this can vary from species to species. The toaster has an aluminum exoskeleton with up to [[4|four]] slots that make up the mouth; protruding from the outer shell is a lever that is pushed down to consume prey. Also present is a dial determining how much of the prey is to be consumed, or in layspeak, "toasted." The toaster's natural habitat ranges from deciduous to evergreen forests. A ferocious predator, toasters have nevertheless been domesticated extensively by humans of nearly all walks of life.<ref>Except for those emaciated [[Black People|black]] kids in Africa, who are so poor they can't afford a latrine.</ref> Stick your nose inside and it will become like your math teacher's. It's so pters in Nature==
  +
On the evolutionary tree, toasters are very closely related to other [[fridge|appliances]], especially microwaves. Toaster ovens are not as close to "true" toasters as you might think, but nonetheless share much of the same [[DNA]]. Also related to toasters are appliances such as refrigerators and stoves. Toasters are ferocious predators, and are hunted only by the occasional dire [[wolf]], and of course, man. The prey of a toaster may include but is not limited to [[sliced bread]], [[bread|loafed bread]], [[bagels]], [[waffles]], [[Pop-Tarts]], [[pancakes]], English muffins<ref>Only the species ''Toasterus angleterri'' preys on these.</ref>, and occasionally [[cash|paper money]] and a few [[finger]]s if it's feeling truly peckish.

In the [[dinosaurs|mesozoic era]], toasters ruled the earth, but were mainly restricted to a two-block area of the Lower East Side due to rent-control. These prehistoric hunting machines, called '''Tyrannotoasterus''' (Tyrant toaster), used brawn, stealth, and small concealable pistols (also known as "Saturday Night Specials") to take down their massive prey. The toasters of millennia past were huge, flying, radioactive machines<ref>Duh, they're toasters.</ref>. Fossil evidence excavated from beneath Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington, USA has definitively proven their existence outside of Lower Manhattan, at least in winged form, since 1992 A.D. '''Toasteropaleontology''' is the branch of science dedicated to the study of these majestic appliances. Currently, the great debate in the toasteropaleontologist community is whether toasters used [[Special:Random|Alternating Current]], [[LED|Direct Current]], or possibly [[AC/DC|both]].
   
==History==
+
===Eating Habits===
In ancient [[Greece|Greek]] mythology, toasters were held in the highest regard, as a wild legendary creature, similer to the [[unicorn]], [[pegasus]], or [[refrigerator]]. Stone tablets, tall tales, and [[screensaver|screensavers]] were dedicated to the toaster, although the Greeks failed to ever actually see one. [[Pythagoras]]'s depiction of the [[Flying Toaster Screensaver]] best shows the Greek legend as it was originally known.

  +
In the early 19th century, toasters were still a mystery to mankind. In 1823, [[George Washington Carver]] set out on an expedition to the California redwoods to study toasters. Over a period of [[ten]] years, Carver studied the eating habits of toasters.
   
Toasters were first discovered roaming the hills in the northwestern [[Midwest]]. First hunted for their shiny [[metal]] hides, it was not until [[Tate McMancooper]] attempted to domesticate one that they were found to be very compatible with [[humans]] and their outlets.
+
Toasters have been found to prey on small flocks, or "loafs" of bread, usually targeting the smaller, weaker of the group. Toasters have been known to prey on other species, such as bagels and Pop Tarts, as well. When a toaster first spots prey, it will immediately drop into a crouch<ref>Not that toasters can crouch at all, anyway...</ref> and stalk the unfortunate bread slice until it stops to drink or eat, usually at a cheap diner or greasy spoon. The toaster pounces at once, crushing the hapless slice. The [[bread]] immediately will struggle violently, often throwing off a less determined toaster and escaping. In order to subdue the bucking prey, a toaster will use its [[poison|poisonous]] plug at the end of its ''cord'', or tail, to stab the prey into submission. However, the [[electricity|electrical surge]] often takes nearly thirty seconds to take effect, and an off guard toaster can be hurled away and seriously damaged before its prey is fully subdued. Once the bread slice has stopped thrashing, the toaster will use its cord to drop it into one of its slots. Then something occurs that continues to befuddle scientists today. As the toaster consumes its prey, it will become excited and produce an electric reaction, called "heat." This amazing reaction is called ''toasting''. After ''forever'', the newly toasted toast is [[barf|regurgitated]] out of the top at high speeds as [[I maed a yuky doody|waste]] or a meal for [[baby|juvenile]] toasters. As the prey is "finished off", it gets shot out of the top at an amazing speed into the air.

There comes a time in every toaster's life when it will feel the need to reproduce, to start a [[family]]. First he will seek out a prospective mate, which can usually be found at singles [[bars]]. If a suitable mate can be found and if the male is not rejected at first sight he will begin an elaborate courtship [[1970s|dance]]. This dance consists of seven parts, three of which are too vulgar and/or disturbing to be included in this article. In the first part, the male will capture a piece of prey. Uncommon preys, such as [[waffles]] or bagels, are valued more to [[females]] than common preys like bread. The [[prey]] that has been captured '''must be alive'''. Second, he must offer the prey up unto his mate. The third part gets into the actual dancing. Dance moves can vary from the electric slide to a tango. Fandango dances are prized among females. The female will often join in, and, taking the prey from the male, will not toast, but [[black|blacken]] it, in a flurry of excitement. Once the male has sufficiently wooed his mate, they will retire to a secluded area to, ''ahem'', [[sex|procreate]]. Sometimes during this labor of love, the female will rip off the head of the male, but only if he's ''really'' good.
   
Toasters are often lovable creatures who are usually quiet and keep to themselves. They often make great [[pet|pets]], though they are not good around [[children]] who are under the age of 10. This is due to their bizarre eating habits. Toasters feast on a wide variety of [[bread|breads]], such as [[pancakes]], [[waffles]], [[forks]], [[Eggos]], and their favorite, [[sliced bread]]. The infatuation of the breads causes the toaster to become so excited that it will actually heat up to [[burn|burning]] degrees, which causes it to not mix well with children. But what is weird about toasters is that you put bread in, and out comes toast! Where does the bread go? What is the deal with that?

==Toasters and Man==
  +
[[Image:Toaster ranching.psd.jpg|thumb|275px|Toasters now come primarily from ranches, like this one pictured here.]]
  +
Man and toasters have had a long and illustrious history, often near-symbiotic creatures, each depending on each other for survival. The first ever domestication of a toaster occurred in Ancient [[Rome]], where on a mosaic in Pompeii there is shown a man and his pet toaster. As the industrial revolution brought about the destruction of many habitats of different animals, the toaster habitat one of them. Toasters dwindled in the wild, until there [[extinct|were no more left]]. However, toasters were saved from extinction by an Englishman named [[Dr. Seuss|Theodore Seuss Geisel]], who preferred toast in the morning with the butter side down. An enterprising man, Geisel saw the potential in the toaster as [[cow|livestock]]. He quickly set up a toaster ranching empire. This not only saved toasters from utter [[doom]], but humans of all walks of life could now own a loving pet.<ref>Toaster-related deaths claim at least 43.4% of American lives each year, but toasters are still lovable. Trust us.</ref> Toaster ranches were a lucrative way to make [[money]], and in the frontiers of America from 1800 to 1850 self-styled [[cowboy|toasterboys]] tamed the ole' west. Now, toasters are raised in [[Texas]] alone, which makes it its chief export. Movie directors saw the glory in that old way of life, and "toaster westerns" make up a principal part of [[America|American]] culture. However, with the release of [[The Brave Little Toaster]], it all went downhill.

==History of Toaster Warfare==
+
Toasters are somewhat hard to <s>confine</s> keep in captivity. Numerous [[circus|circuses]], [[zoo|zoos]], and [[Mr. Kearsy|teacher lounges]] have had an instance of a runaway toaster. One of the more famous incidents involved all three places at once. A traveling circus was visiting a zoo, along with a teacher and her lounge in the year [[1927]].<ref>What ''didn't'' happen in that year?</ref> A toaster that was being forced to jump through a hoop saw another toaster of the opposite gender (quite a looker, too, as toasters go) inside the zoo cage, and well, [[You don't want to know|you know]]. The zoo had to be closed for six months, the circus went bankrupt, and the teacher was given a quiet [[funeral]] in a private ceremony at Hidden Hollows cemetery.
 
Toasters, due to their high levels of [[Oprah|sneakiness]] and [[Scooby Doo|stealthiness]], were a staple weapon in the arsenal of [[Ninja|ninjas]] for over 7,000 years. Also, the toaster played an obviously huge role in The Great Toaster War of 1066 (Often mistaken as The [[Battle of Hastings]], don't believe them, they're trying to control your [[shit|brain]].) By the time 1940 rolled around, the toasters were sick and tired of their pointless [[slavery]] to mankind, and after much hard work and preparation, sparked The Great Toaster Rebellion of 1944 on June the 6th (often mistaken as [[D-day]], again with the brainwashing bit), and the toasters have lived happy and love song filled lives (see below) ever since.
 
 
 
 
==Love Songs To The Toaster==
 
 
Many love songs have been written to and about the toaster, man's best friend.
 
 
===To Beloved===
 
 
This first [[love]] song to the toaster was written by [[Tate McMancooper]] sometime before [[The Tatiad]] was published.
 
 
:''I finally figured what I was banging my head into''
 
:''And it was not a person I was talking to''
 
:''My little toaster, I really do miss you''
 
:''My little toaster, I'm sorry I sold you''
 
:''My toaster, one day I will find you''
 
 
:''And you tell me toasters can't walk''
 
:''And you tell me toasters can't talk''
 
:''Well I'll continue my stubborn defiances''
 
:''And continue to talk to kitchen appliances''
 
:''Until my little toaster, I find you''
 
 
:''Yes the crazy old man has lost his head''
 
:''And talks to things that only toast bread''
 
:''Well, let me tell you there's more that they can do''
 
:''Like toast bagels, waffles, and Eggos too''
 
 
:''So my little toaster, I'm coming to find you''
 
:''And hope that you days are not through''
 
:''Because my toaster, I'm going to save you''
 
 
It was this [[poem]] that sparked a massive resurgence into researching methods of [[suicide]].
 
 
===The Sexiana===
 
 
The next love song, though not an actual love song, was classified as such because of the mention of the toaster and its superior [[intelligence]] when compared to man and pterodactyl. It was written by [[Homer]], master of the epic poetry, wrote this sestina during a drunken stupor.
 
 
:''"Toaster!" called a man.''
 
:''And next is what he said.''
 
:''"If you can see, Mr. Toaster,''
 
:''Tell me what you think.''
 
:''On that tree do you see that pterodactyl?''
 
:''Do you think I could jump over that tree?"''
 
 
:''"Man!" replied the toaster,''
 
:''"This is what I think;''
 
:''If you, a man,''
 
:''Ran toward that there pterodactyl,''
 
:''Clearly you would not clear the tree."''
 
:''That is what the toaster said.''
 
 
:''"Obviously you heard not what I said,"''
 
:''Replied the man.''
 
:''"I said 'Run!' at the pterodactyl''
 
:''Who sits on the tree.''
 
:''But why do I ask what you think?''
 
:''You are but a toaster."''
 
 
:''Able to hear all upon the tree,''
 
:''About the conversation of the man and toaster''
 
:''And wanting to tell what he may think''
 
:''The pterodactyl approached the toaster and man''
 
:''With something to be said''
 
:''About this matter which concerned the pterodactyl''
 
 
:''So approached the pterodactyl''
 
:''Who had flown off of his tree.''
 
:''And this is what he said;''
 
:''"You could not make it. Not you toaster,''
 
:''Nor you man.''
 
:''That is what I think."''
 
 
:''Now the pterodactyl made the man and toaster think''
 
:''Because he was big and was a pterodactyl''
 
:''Who had flown down from the tree''
 
:''And thinking about what he said''
 
:''The man said to the toaster''
 
:''"I guess you're right. I'm just a man."''
 
 
:''And the toaster looked at the man''
 
:''"Well duh!" said the toaster,''
 
:''"Always trust a pterodactyl."''
 
 
==Fun Facts==
 
 
Here are some fun [[fact|facts]] about everybody's favorite appliance, the toaster.
 
 
*Toasters are man's best friend.
 
*Toasters have a close, more advanced relative that is also an appliance, the [[microwave]].
 
*Toasters have been featured in numerous [[television]] shows, books and are commonly found in people's [[kitchen|kitchens]].
 
*Dee Spanish Society: Proud Sponser of Toasters
 
*Though most toasters are friendly, not all are. Some toasters cannot tell the difference between [[friend]] and bread. These toasters, sadly, must immediately be put to [[sleep]].
 
*From 1926 to 1934 the toaster was the official rifle of the [[Soviet Union]].
 
*The Toaster was invented by a slice of bread attempting to commit suicide.
 
*Some of the more aristocratic Toasters are often called 'toastmasters'.
 
*It is not recomended to introduce your penis into toasters, because strange as it may seem, it can produce serious damage to the point that your penis may become a toast or in certain types of penises (particularily asian and dinosaur penises) they can become a waffle.
 
*Toasters should not be kept outdoors.
 
*Toasters can know be used as sex toys
 
*The equation for Toaster is Toaster = Toast / Bread
 
*Toaster: Proud Sponser of Dee Spanish Society

“Gentlemen, I have seen the future. And the future... is toasters.”

A toaster is a small land crustacean. It is generally shiny and box-like, although this can vary from species to species. The toaster has an aluminum exoskeleton with up to four slots that make up the mouth; protruding from the outer shell is a lever that is pushed down to consume prey. Also present is a dial determining how much of the prey is to be consumed, or in layspeak, "toasted." The toaster's natural habitat ranges from deciduous to evergreen forests. A ferocious predator, toasters have nevertheless been domesticated extensively by humans of nearly all walks of life.[1] Stick your nose inside and it will become like your math teacher's.

Toasters are ferocious predators, and are hunted only by the occasional dire wolf, and of course, man. The prey of a toaster may include but is not limited to sliced bread, loafed bread, bagels, waffles, Pop-Tarts, pancakes, English muffins[2], and occasionally paper money and a few fingers if it's feeling truly peckish.

In the mesozoic era, toasters ruled the earth, but were mainly restricted to a two-block area of the Lower East Side due to rent-control.

edit Eating Habits

Toaster pounce
The toaster is a ferocious predator, employing the "sneak-up-and-pounce" technique to great effect. The slice of bread doesn't stand a chance.

In the early 19th century, toasters were still a mystery to mankind. In 1823, George Washington Carver set out on an expedition to the California redwoods to study toasters. Over a period of ten years, Carver studied the eating habits of toasters.

Toasters have been found to prey on small flocks, or "loafs" of bread, usually targeting the smaller, weaker of the group. Toasters have been known to prey on other species, such as bagels and Pop Tarts, as well. When a toaster first spots prey, it will immediately drop into a crouch[4] and stalk the unfortunate bread slice until it stops to drink or eat, usually at a cheap diner or greasy spoon. The toaster pounces at once, crushing the hapless slice. The bread immediately will struggle violently, often throwing off a less determined toaster and escaping. In order to subdue the bucking prey, a toaster will use its poisonous plug at the end of its cord, or tail, to stab the prey into submission. However, the electrical surge often takes nearly thirty seconds to take effect, and an off guard toaster can be hurled away and seriously damaged before its prey is fully subdued. Once the bread slice has stopped thrashing, the toaster will use its cord to drop it into one of its slots. Then something occurs that continues to befuddle scientists today. As the toaster consumes its prey, it will become excited and produce an electric reaction, called "heat." This amazing reaction is called toasting. After forever, the newly toasted toast is regurgitated out of the top at high speeds as waste or a meal for juvenile toasters. As the prey is "finished off", it gets shot out of the top at an amazing speed into the air.

edit Courtship and Mating

Toasters will often utilize exotic pelt colorings to attract mates.

There comes a time in every toaster's life when it will feel the need to reproduce, to start a family. First he will seek out a prospective mate, which can usually be found at singles bars. If a suitable mate can be found and if the male is not rejected at first sight he will begin an elaborate courtship dance.

Once the male has sufficiently wooed his mate, they will retire to a secluded area to, ahem, procreate. Sometimes during this labor of love, the female will rip off the head of the male, but only if he's really good.

Toasters now come primarily from ranches, like this one pictured here.

Man and toasters have had a long and illustrious history, often near-symbiotic creatures, each depending on each other for survival. The first ever domestication of a toaster occurred in Ancient Rome, where on a mosaic in Pompeii there is shown a man and his pet toaster. As the industrial revolution brought about the destruction of many habitats of different animals, the toaster habitat one of them. Toasters dwindled in the wild, until there were no more left.
