The Toaster Zone

 You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of smell and taste but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of pareidolia. Next stop, the Toaster Zone!

Imagine if you will, a toaster. At first glance, a regular, run of the mill toaster. One with a happy face of levers and dials.

A two-slice toaster whose levers look like eyes. A moustache has been doodled onto the "doneness" dials. Speech bubble says, "Crust me, I'm a professional."

But on closer inspection one finds a mysterious surprise inside its depths. Four satisfied smilers sucking on straws.

Same toaster, this time showing the toast slots. Inside each slot is what looks like a smiley face with a straw coming out of its mouth. Angry eyebrows have been doodled in.

What substance could those straw-sippers be slurping?

Perhaps something as simple as sangria.

Or perhaps something more sinister…Like souls.

Perhaps we will never know.

But it makes you wonder, doesn’t it? Just how normal is your toaster? Just how normal are the appliances you use every day inside your own home?
