Super elegant

You know, it's funny. When I was a kid growing up, we used to eat toast all the time, and it seemed perfectly normal. Delicious, even. By toast, of course, I mean a plain slice of bread, toasted in a toaster. Here in Israel, however, if you have toast, it generally means a toasted sandwich (as we recently saw here). As in, an assembled sandwich, including ingredients other than bread :)


Anyway, I do occasionally come across a good old fashioned toaster, like we used to have. Not that often, but sometimes. Usually, if the box says "toaster," it's referring to a sandwich maker (you can kind of see one in the second photo here). Maybe that's why they felt the need to explain just which kind of toaster this is:



A jumping toaster! Funny, right? But it gets even better - this other version was right next to it, for classier folk:




Ah. Who writes these things, anyway?
